A Anniversary Card for Paul and Mandy

As this is a first anniversary of their renewal of their Wedding Vows, I thought it would be nice to make a special card for my special friends Paul and Mandy.

I have created 3 Pompom Dahlia's, these were mainly punched from the small teardrop punch, and the small heart punch, altogether you will need 48 teardrops and 8 hearts which are cut in half to make 16 pieces. The punched out shapes are cupped and shaped with a large ball stylus, and stuck to 2 large Snowflakes, 3 medium flower, and 2 small daisies. The centre's are created from 3 small cosmos punches which are then cupped and layered inside each other, and on the very top a small mini star is the crowing glory.

The snowflakes, daisies and flowers are layered up in different combinations to give the pom pom effect.

The base card is a white/cream pearlised card that I have embossed along the edge with my scor-pal board, and layered a white patterned (spotted) vellum wrap with an edge which has been punched with the threading water punch. I have used a small piece of glue to keep the vellum attached to the card and over the folded edge I have attached a pink organiza ribbon and tied a small bow. Down the edge of the card I have used my stamp tapestry stamps to create a flowered border.

I have mounted the Dahlia's onto a White Oval and then on a Pink Scalloped Oval, cut from my Nestabilities dies, for the leaves I have used the large Oak leaf, and in the very middle of the flowers I have put a small dot of glitter glue.

To finish the card of I have printed a greeting from my computer which was also mounted on White Card and then on Pink.
