So I’ve been looking through my old cards and I came across this card that I made my husband 10 years ago. It was an anniversary card that I made for our 10th anniversary. But it’s kind of pretty and it could pass for a valentine card so I thought I would share today.
This card was made well before I started blogging so I do not have photos of the whole process. But I do remember how I made it so I will give as good of details as I can without photos. All the supplies would have been from Stampin Up.
The card base is cut from Very Vanilla card stock, cut to 5 1/4” x 8” scored at 4”. Using a Mapleleaf stamp and Versa Mark ink, I stamped three leaves onto the very vanilla card front. Then I used gold embossing powder and heat and embossed gold on the leaves. When the embossing cooled I took a Real Red marker and colored in some of the spaces in the leaves to give them a little bit of color. Using Real Red ink and a sponge I sponge around the sides of the card front.
I cut a piece of vellum to 5 1/4” x 4” (same as card front) and laid it over the card front and stamped three more of the same leaves in the spaces between the previous leaves (you can see them through the vellum) I carefully heat embossed these leaves with gold embossing powder as well. On the backside of the vellum I used a Real Red marker and coloured the backs of the leaves so the red would show through some of the spaces.
Next, I stamped “Love” with Versa Mark and Gold heat embossed this as well.
Only adding adhesive behind the leaves I adhered the Vellum panel to the card front and wrapped a red ribbon around it just typing a simple knot on the front.
I added the card base to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Brushed Gold cardstock
