Cheery Lynn Designs Any Occasion Card

For my Cheery Lynn Designs post today, I had no idea what I wanted to make.  But I think this card would be pretty good for any occasion.  Be sure to click on the photo to see all the fabulous details. 



I began with a 5 x 7 inch red card base.  Next came a piece of Cryogen white, 4.75 x 6.75 embossed with XL Petite Hearts embossing plate.  I love that I can make an embossed panel this large without piecing it together.  Using the newly released French Pastry Doily, I cut the wonderfully detailed circle panel out of red card stock.  Using a Circles Little Stackers die, I cut a matching Cryogen white circle for the center to which I added texture using the Large Circle Stitcher plate.  See how the stitches follow the circle, pretty cool!  Next came Bird on a Branch 2; I used Vintage Photo Distress ink on the branch for some dimension.  Now I needed a border, so I used the Frills and Hearts Border, adding a white strip textured with the Large Rectangle Piercing plate.  Last but not least are the flowers and leaves.  For the base of the roses I used the larger die from Tropical Flower, dry embossing on the back for some roundness to the petals.  For the leaves I used 2 sets, Dimensional Large Leaves 2 and Small Leaves 2, again adding Distress ink for some detailing.  I added some pearl accents and I was done.  Other than the roses, this entire card is made from die cuts, and I think it is quite pretty.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.
