Good morning! Emily here with you today with a pretty (and simple!) anniversary card that has lots of texture, despite the overall simplicity!

To start, I heat embossed one of the floral sprays from Country Blooms and a few little sprigs of greenery onto some watercolor paper. Then, I die cut them out with the coordinating dies, and watercolored them with my Daniel Smith watercolors.

For the background, I used the beautiful Honeybee Stipple cover plate to add a beautiful quilted texture to the background of my white linen A2 panel. I figured anniversaries are about quilting years together to make a beautiful life, so an anniversary sentiment would be perfect. (Sappy, yes, and perhaps a bit of a stretch, but this is how my mind works haha!) I heat embossed the greeting from Happy Everything using the same platinum embossing powder that was used to emboss the flowers. I popped the flowers up with some dimensional adhesive in the corner.

The final touch was to add some pretty, shimmery sequins to fill out the bouquet!

Well, that’s all for me today! I hope you enjoyed this quick little card! I love that those pretty floral images from Country Blooms pack such a punch, even in small doses. Have a marvelous weekend, friends!

  1. Emily, this is beautiful! And I don’t think it’s sappy in the least! Being a former quilter, I agree that marriage is about how our lives are continually pieced and stitched together…one block at a time. And sometimes you have to rip out a stitch or two to get it right…just like we have to work things out. So I LOVE your analogy and think it’s perfect. I love this particular stamp and die set…and have it. So thanks for the beautiful inspiration! Thanks for sharing it! Hugs!
