Heart Swans Anniversary


This card was pretty simple to create since the only stamping on the front is the two swans.  I started by cutting a piece of DCWV 'Tis the Season Metallic Paper using the Mega Curved Rectangles #4 Die.  I then cut a piece of Shimmery White paper to layer onto the metallic paper.

The heart swans were stamped in VersaMark and embossed with silver embossing powder and a heat gun.  I used a Copic Powder Blue Marker to create the water then applied Sky Blue Shimmerz Paint.

A Marianne Design Creatables Die was used to create the branch.  After cutting it out with the Big Shot I applied Under the Sea Shimmerz Paint.  These dies are awesome!

I embellished the card with a 5/8" satin ribbon in aqua and added some vanilla rosettes.

The inside was stamped with Happy Anniversary in VersaMark and embossed with silver embossing powder and a heat gun.  I also added a flourish in Soft Sky to compliment the outside of the card.


Pretty swans ...


I hope you had a peaceful weekend.  I will be linking with Make It Monday.

Your card is beautiful! It has a very romantic feel to it! I think it is the swans- I love anything with swans! The ribbon itself, the color- really adds to the card, too! Nice job!
