Happy Anniversary Card

Love Card (1)

Rolled paper flowers are really beautiful and they always catch my eye.  I am THRILLED to finally have a tool (Silhouette) to make paper flowers.   I used the 3d rolled rose pattern and then added some leaves.  It’s so much easier making these with a die cut than by hand!  See the paper flower board I’ve created on Pinterest to keep track of the flowers I love.  Alice, Virginia and Joy have created some flowers that totally inspire me- thank you ladies!! I can’t wait to create more!

Last weekend my husband saw them sitting on my craft desk and commented that he liked the way they turned out.  I love when he likes what I make and I smiled.  We celebrated our 7th anniversary earlier this week and so I thought these three flowers would be a good accent for his “Happy Anniversary” card.  The best part about giving cards to him is that I get to see them sitting on his desk for months.    Luckily I was able to find some background paper (from a different collection) that seemed to work with the yellow dot flowers and are somewhat male colors.

I was planning to sew a border around the card with blue thread but turns out my machine needs to get service.  So I added a black mat & the black/white pattern to the base before adding the panel front of the card because it needed something else.

I just love how the flowers look when rolled & glued together.  I had fun taking these photos of them and can’t wait to do more.   The Silhouette comes with a gift card for the digital store and I used it to buy all paper flower templates.

This tag from the Sketchbook collection was just perfect with the blue “the best FEELING” sentiment to go with this LOVE card.    Added a brad and a touch of twine and it was a quick card.    I also made a vase of large paper flowers with this same paper that I’ll be sharing next.
