Jaded Blossom: FANCY HEARTS Birthday Card

 Happy Friday everyone! I'm back sharing a Birthday Card I created using the new Jaded Blossom Fancy Hearts Die and a sentiment from Birthday Coffee Art Stamp Set. The entire January Release is AMAZING, and I'm having so much fun creating with these fabulous products! 

Today is my beautiful Mother-in-law's Birthday, and her favorite color is purple! This amazing woman is truly a blessing in my life. She has always supported and loved me pretty much from the first day I met her. My husband always jokes that his mom loves me more than him...and he actually might be right, LOL! She survived a ruptured brain aneurysm a few years ago, along with two brain surgeries: one immediate surgery from the ruptured aneurysm, and then another brain surgery a year later for a smaller aneurysm on the other side of her brain. I'm telling you, she is the strongest woman I know. I'm so lucky to have her in my life! 

I created a gold version of this card on a previous post HERE. This time around I went with purple because that's my MIL's favorite color. I used the solid heart die to cut a piece of purple cardstock. Then I backed it with some scortape. Next, I lined up the solid heart cut-out within the die that has all the small hearts. I ran it through my die-cutting machine with a rubber embossing mat under the die so it would not cut all the way through. I wanted the outline of the hearts, but needed all the pieces to stay intact. 

 I stamped one of the sentiments from the Birthday Coffee Art Stamp Set onto white cardstock. I trimmed it, and then used a pink Copic Marker to line the edge of the sentiment piece. I added it on top of the heart with foam tape. To finish it off, I added paper flowers and leaves from I Am Roses, and purple enamel dots in the corners.

Remember, we have a Monthly Challenge on the Jaded Blossom Blog. For February, the theme is FLOWERS. We hope you play along with us for a chance to win a FREE Stamp Set! Be sure to check out the Jaded Blossom Store for all your stamps and gift giving supplies.
