Embroidered Flower Anniversary

Hello everyone! I am really loving the new Mat Stack #1 Die from Papertrey Ink. I couldn't help but use it on today's card...This time I paired it with the vine image from With Sympathy. Stamped it in Spring Moss onto a Vintage Cream cardstock base and rounded the corner. The Mat Stack die was cut from Lavender Moon cardstock and then embossed/impressed using the new Argyle Impression Plate. Punched a circle from Vintage Cream cardstock, stamped with vines and attached to the center of the embossed die cut.
Stamped a Spring Moss cardstock strip with a sentiment, attached it over the circle and trimmed the edges. Finished it off with a gorgeous little Jolee's Boutique Embroidered Flower attached next to the sentiment.

For some reason I have a hard time using scrapbook embellishments on my cards, I usually stick to my usuals: buttons, ribbon, floss & rhinestones. But when I was browsing JoAnn's the other day, I found this pack of Embroidered Flowers and loved them. So I made a deal with my self, I would only buy them if I promised my self I would use them and not hoard them. So there you have it, I've broke open the package and put one to use. I know, crazy right?! Lol!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful day!

  6. Gorgeous card Maile! I love how you continued the vine pattern in the center of the die. Lovely embroidered flower too. Isn't it crazy how we hoard beautiful things when we should be showing them off? :)

  12. You're amazing! I'm so glad you've joined the PTI team! I have been enjoying your blog so much! I loved the white card with the daisy cut-outs over the embossed panel, with the bright buttons showing through--it has stuck in my head ever since you posted it! I just really love your style and creativity!
