Real Love Stories Never Have Endings

Happy Sunday!! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!! My parents are celebrating their anniversary tomorrow so I made time to visit my craft room to create a card for them :)


For some reason, I had trouble photographing these cards. Not sure why :/ I used papers from Lemoncraft's Tiny Miracles stack.


The frame is a KaiserCraft Circle Vines die. It was heat embossed with Shabby White Frantage. Glittered mesh from Joann was cut with a Memory Box Stitched Circles die and applied behind the frame. A Sue Wilson Pierced Flags die was used for the sentiment from My Craft Spot (no longer in business). It was heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle. The heart is from My Creative Time and it was covered with SNS Crystal Ice.


A Sue Wilson Pierced Tag was used in the background, with white twine from DL.ART. The pictures don't do justice to the gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. The ribbon is Chalk White from DL.ART. The hearts along the bottom are a Frantic Stamper Love Accessory die and it was covered in SNS Crystal Ice.


One the inside, I used one of my new Carabella Spring dies. I added the hearts that came from the Frantic Stamper die on the front...they are also glittered with SNS Crystal Ice.


Because I can never just make one card, I made another in the same style :) Once again, it was very hard to photograph this and I don't know why.


The details are pretty much the same except this sentiment is from My Creative Time. The butterfly is a Fiskars punch.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) Frilly and Funkie - What a Mesh (cheesecloth and glittered mesh)
2) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
3) Little Scrap Pieces Show if Off Saturday - Anything Goes


Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

  25. Photos look pretty good to me! While I love both the cards, I think #1 will be my fav as it's such a special one. And the sentiment is so aptly chosen, and your parents will think so too! Love the delicacy of the white (and glad that the JoAnn's mesh is coming in so handy for your designs). Awesome dies, perfectly used, and of course the beautiful floral bouquets that are your signature! Well done on both cards..TFS & Hugs
