Classy Cards Best Friends

Hi, I'm sharing a new card today I created for the Classy Cards 'n Such Blog.  If you use my coupon code JENNY-10 you can save 10% on an entire order at the Classy Cards Store.


I only used a few dies on this card because the Cheery Lynn Lattice 2 die is so prominent and it didn't need much else.  I cut the lattice out of pink card stock and glued it to the cream A2 card.  Then I created my flowers using Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms die.  The die set comes with five flower petals but I didn't use the largest because I wanted to keep my flowers a little smaller.  I colored the flowers with pink distress ink and a Mini Ink Blending Tool before I shaped them using a stylus from the McGill Paper Blossoms Tool Kit.

After the flowers were stacked and glued I adhered them to the card with Score Tape.  I cut the Memory Box Amira Flourish with the same pink card stock I used for the lattice and popped it up with Joy Crafts Foam Pads.  The sentiment was stamped using memento tuxedo black ink and cut with a Spellbinders oval die.

The card needed a little contrast so I added gray pearls to the flower centers and gray flourishes from another die in my stash.
