It's Your Day!

Wedding season is upon us so today's inspiration for Dies R Us, is a card that can be used for any special celebration such as a wedding, anniversary or any other momentous occasion.

 Today's card uses the following dies:

I started by cutting this Cheery Lynn Designs Lattice Heart & Vines out of gold card stock.  The detail on this die is incredible and it cut perfectly with one pass through my machine.  I chose to leave the negative pieces in the heart for this project.

 I cute quite a few of the Elizabeth Craft Garden Notes Carnation petals out of red, coral and white card stock, using the three smallest petal dies because I didn't want the carnations to come out too large.  That's one of the nice things about these dies is that you can use just the sizes you want and still create stunning layered flowers.  The more layers you use, the fuller your flowers will be.

I added a touch of color to the centers of the petals using coordinating Copic markers before molding the petals on a craft mat and gluing them together using Glossy Accents.  

Next, I cut a few Poppystamps Hampstead Stems out of green card stock and started to play around with designs.

Before gluing any dies down, I ran the front of the card through my machine using an embossing folder to add interest.  There are many different embossing folders in the Dies R Us store that are well suited for any type of card.  I also cut an Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Fishtail Banner out of silver sparkle card stock and heat embossed the sentiment in black.

I hope you're inspired by today's project.  Don't forget to join in on all the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
