Burgundy & Cream - On Your Special Day- Showcasing The Brand New Dies 'From The Heart Collection'

Good Morning Everyone,

I can't begin to tell you how honoured I am to have Phill's New 'From The Heart' Collection Dies to work with. They are absolutely amazing, and cut first time every time.

For those of you who know Phill you will know what he's like for attention to detail. Well I can say he has certainly excelled himself with the launch of his New Dies.

I absolutely loved creating the samples, and hope these will give you inspiration.

Today's Card:-

All the products used to create this card are available on Phill's Website:-


This is what I used:-
A4 Card Blank
Burgundy Card Stock
Cream Card Stock
Phill Martin Dies From The Heart Collection - On Your Special day
Sue Wilson Dies Austrian Collection - Innsbruck
Sue Wilson Peony Dies
Sue Wilson Laurel Leaves
Sue Wilson Canadian Collection Border, Corner & Tags
Sue Wilson Embossing Folder Lattice Hearts
Spellbinder Dragon Delight
Creative Expression Pearl Strips
Glossy Accents
Diamond Sprinkles
Cosmic Shimmer Glue

This is what I did:- 

First I cut the layers:-
2 pieces of burgundy  card cut to 8 x 12.5 and 7.5 x 12
2 pieces of cream card cut to 7.75 x 12.25 and 7.25 x 11.75
then using the Lattice Hearts Embossing Folder I embossed the  smallest cream card.
 Placing the corner tag at an angle I carefully cut this out,then added all the layers to the base card.


Using the  Austrian Collection  Innsbruck Dies
I cut these out using Cream Card and mounted this onto Burgundy card, then attached to the main card using pads to give dimension.

Then using burgundy card stock I cut out the Sentiment 'On Your Special Day' from  the New 'From The Heart ' Collection.
I then attached this flat to the centre.


Using the Peony Dies I cut a selection of flowers out using scraps of burgundy card stock, then shaped and glued these together before adding to the card.

I then cut out the Laurel Leaves again using burgundy card, and added to the card.

Finishing Touches  
 I added the Dragonfly using the Dragon Delight Die and Burgundy Card stock, before adding Diamond Sprinkles to the wings, and also to the flowers and leaves.

I then added pearl strips across the top of the border die.

I attached a couple of hearts to the top corners of the card.

Finally I added Glossy Accents to the Hearts of the Sentiment and corners.
                                               Happy Crafting
