Wishing You the Very Best | By Laurie Schmidlin


Happy Friday friends!

I know I’ve mentioned it here before, but I adore all things hearts and flowers!  The latest Birch Press Design release is brimming with beautiful hearts, sentiments, and even sequins!  All of these items are perfect for Valentine’s Day, the upcoming wedding season, and just everyday cards!

I wanted to create a card that could be used for many different occasions.  I started by gathering my supplies.  The main focal image is the beautifully detailed heart.  I used both the Fiori Heart Layer A and Layer C.  I wanted the lovely stitching detail on the Layer C to show, so I used that as my top layer.  I die cut the Layer A out of black cardstock and adhered it underneath the white Layer C die cut.  I like that there are just a few black bits showing through.

I adhered it to the card using dimensional foam.  You can see int he supplies photo that I added a large piece of foam where I planned on placing the flowers.  I added smaller pieces in other places so that they wouldn’t show through the open parts of the heart.

For the sentiment, I stamped and die cut the “Wishing” sentiment (from the Wishing You the Best stamp set and coordinating Wishing You the Best die set) and then popped it up using dimensional foam.  For the rest of the sentiment, I stamped it on a small strip of cardstock and then trimmed the ends to look like a banner.

For the flowers, I stamped the large and smaller bold flowers from the Time to Celebrate stamp set.  I die cut them out using the coordinating Time to Celebrate die set and arranged them on the left side of the heart.  I tucked in some stamped and die cut greenery sprigs for a little added color.

For embellishment, I tied on some Baker’s Twine and adhered some sequins (from the Pretty in Pink sequin collection).
