Layers of Creamy Goodness!!

Here is my blog post on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog today!!
Don't forget to join in our weekly challenges,
we would love to see you there!!

Hello Friends,
Diane here with you today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.

Today I have a gorgeous card showing you how well all the dies from various companies
work together.

I started my card base by cutting a frame from
Marianne Creatable Die Anja's Large Oval
I scored my cardstock, folded it in half, and overlapped the die, so as not to cut
entirely through the fold side, allowing the card to be "one piece".  I cut a second "single
Large Oval and covered the card front with it, giving me a complete die cut.....
a wonderful and easy way to create a "shaped card"!
Using another die from the same set of Marianne Creatable Die Anja's Large Oval,
 I made the next, intricate, beautiful layer, 
which has been slightly "popped" up using Joy Foam pads.

The next layer was created using the Cheery Lynn Designs Lattice Hearts & Vines die.
It, too was "popped" up by cutting the small Joy Foam pads in half
.  On top of the heart, I placed the word"Love", also a Cheery Lynn Designs die.

To finish my card, I added 3 rolled roses using a Memory Box Pinwheel Posie die.
I added a bit of "Mercury Glass" stickles to my flower "petals".
I think this would be a beautiful card for an anniversary, wedding, or Valentines Day!!
