Happy Anniversary Card with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

A friend of mine asked me to create an anniversary card for his wife so it’s all about flowers and anniversaries today!  

For today’s card, I am showcasing the Pretty Posies stamp set and Posies Fri-Die.


I started by stamping the images on some vellum with versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.

I die-cut the flowers using the coordinating dies.  I flipped the cut images on the other side and used my alcohol markers to color them in.  I set them aside to dry and started working on my background.

I die-cut an A2 size panel of white card stock and used some dye inks and blending brush to lightly color the background.  I pressed the same ink pad onto an acrylic block and added some water.  I used my paint brush to splatter some color on my background for a more cohesive look, and added texture.

 I adhered the vellum flowers on the card using my Xyron sticker maker and some foam adhesive for added dimension.

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink and added the Sparkling Hearts droplets on the card.  Here’s another look:

I really love the stamp set that we are revealing today.  It has a lot of great sentiments and are perfect for a wedding, anniversaries or just-because.


To begin, I dry-embossed an A2 size Neenah solar white card stock using the Trellis Cover Die and my embossing mat.  I also die-cut some flowers using a die from my stash with white card stock, and the Garden Fri-Dies on some gold card stock.


I foam-mounted the flowers and adhered the center of the flowers with some liquid adhesive.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment with some Versamark ink and sprinkled some gold embossing powder.  I used my Wagner heating tool to heat-set the sentiment.  I fussy-cut the sentiment with my precision snips and adhered it onto my card.



This card is so classy and elegant and would be perfect as a wedding card or happy anniversary.  Here’s a closer look:
