Paisleys & Posies

I was asked to create an anniversary card and my immediate thoughts went to the gorgeous Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies which never fail me.  But as you know, I like to keep things fresh.  So I decided to create my own heart base using the Sweet & Sassy framelits dies and, taking inspiration from the catty, I stamped and clear heat embossed images from the stunning Paisleys & Posies stamp set over the heart.  I then watercoloured over my heart with the pretty colour combo – flirty flamingo, sweet sugarplum and peakaboo peach.


My sentiment comes from Best Birds, and I gold heat embossed this over vellum to keep the elegant look of the card.  To finish I decided to cut some gold accents out from gold foil sheets using the Paisley framelits Dies and attach my card front to a flirty flamingo mat on crumb cake base.  Here is my finished card.


Overall I was pleased with the finished result although if I had white heat embossed my images instead of clear heat embossing them, this would have made my paisley images really ‘pop’ against the watercolour.  Which look do you prefer – soft or sharp? Would love to hear your thoughts x
