Special Person

I have a pretty card to share today, which I made using a sketch from the Clean & Simple blog, FTL194. I know it doesn't look like a typical CAS card, but I love how it turned out.

I needed an anniversary card for friends so I pulled out Clearly Sentimental About Anniversaries, from My Favorite Things. This couple loves to laugh and joke with each other so I think the sentiment on the front of the card is perfect for them.

I used patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye A Beautiful Life paper pad and paired them with Fossil, Jellybean Green, perfect plum, and cream card stocks. I used the Simply Scallops Large Die-namics to cut out the Fossil scallop layer and topped it with some Orchid twine. The main panel layers were cut out using the Rectangle 1 STAX and Rectangle 2 STAX Die-namics.

For the flower I used Prima Donna Petals Die-namics and cut the larger flower from patterned paper, then cut the inside flower from Wisteria felt. I recently received a slew of buttons from Buttons Galore and More and I chose a Sunflower button for the flower center.

On the inside I simply stamped "Happy Anniversary" and added a polka dot strip which I cut out with the Small Scallop Border Die-namics.

Here are the Die-namics I used:
