Happy Anniversary

Hi bloggers!  I thought it was time to share one of the Filigree Artistry dies with you!  I selected a piece of Seafoam Green card as my background.  I used the Scalloped Border and cut it out of vellum for a soft look.  I extended it a bit to make it longer, then cut a thin strip of white card and wove it through the centre section of the border and glued it to the background.  Next, I cut the Vanessa die out of white card and added a vellum backing to it.  I seated it in the centre of the card with foam.  I used the Double Stitched Ovals to cut a base for the sentiment and cut the Happy Anniversary out of seafoam green and added a black shadow to it.  I glued it in the centre and added three small green flowers from the Blossom Patch die set.  I cut a double strip of white pearls down the centre and added a strip to the top and bottom edge of the card.The card was completed with white and seafoam green mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now Sue x

Hello Sue,

Such a lovely card that is so delicate and lacy. The Scalloped Border cut in vellum adds such a soft translucent look to the card. So feminine.

Good morning Sue,
The artistry range of dies create a beautiful, soft and delicate look to a card which then allow the feature die to stand out. Stunning! X

Hi Sue
Absolutely stunning. I think everything about this card is elegant. The Scalloped border is so delicate.
I fell in love with the Filigree Artistry dies when you launched them. Another ingenious concept to make our lives so easy. My impatience would not even consider allowing me to participate in the art of parchment craft (let alone my dodgy hands)!
Happy Wednesday everyone

Morning Sue, stunning card! Love the Scalloped Border die (the one I was lucky enough to win) it looks so beautiful cut in Vellum. The green makes the card look so fresh too. Love Jean xxx. I am off to France early tomorrow to see my grandchildren so if I am absent for a few days you know why! Hopefully I will still get a chance to catch up! xxx

A beautiful WoW card today. The scalloped border is a favourite and the Vanessa die compliments it beautifully to make the most delicate and pretty card I have seen for a good while. Did I say I love it.
