This week we at Double Trouble are partnering again with Crafting Happiness for their challenge #50 whose theme is "red". Our Double Trouble theme is "Brown Bag It Day". So my background is craft brown. All the red/pink on the flowers were made by either multiple stamping using my stamp positioner, or stamping off one time on a scrap piece of paper before stamping on my cardstock to create a lighter shade.
The flowers were all die-cut using the matching dies to the Stampin' Up! (SU) "Beautiful Bouquet" stamps. They were attached to the die-cut stems using glue dots so they didn't lay flat on the background. This gave them more of a 3D look.
I chose to use jute twine for the bow because it felt right along with the "craft" theme. The little red epoxy heart was colored using a red Copic marker.
The anniversary sentiment was stamped in black using a stamp from the same "Beautiful Bouquet" set.
I am rating the difficulty of this card as a "2" out of a possible "5". With the matching stamps and dies, it goes really easy.
