Artiste K Key for Rose Blossom Garden #7 Using Atlantic Hearts Sketch #10

My daughter-in-law had a big birthday yesterday so I made her a one of a kind special card.  Following the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #10 in combination with the Artiste K Key challenge from Rose Blossom Gardens #7 was pretty easy to do.  I love playing along with blog challenges that support the use of Close To My Heart products as these two sites do!  It was a great sketch and the Artiste K page had fun elements to work with.  I wanted to highlight her milestone birthday--the big 30 so I cut the numbers at 1.25" using Artiste from a repurposed foil take out lid.  (The silvery metallic lid did not photograph well here).  The frame behind the numbers was cut from Dreamin' paper (retired CTMH) accent 2 pg. 58 at 3.25"--this piece is actually a mini-album page so I turned it so the binding holes were on the bottom and then concealed by the horizontal stripe. The mat for the frame was cut at slightly more than 3.25".  The White Daisy background was dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Poppy folder.  The flower accents were also from page 58 accent 4 cut at 2.75" and 1.5" from Goldrush CS  and Dreamin' paper.  The greeting is from Perfect Fit--Birthday and was stamped in Indian Corn BlueSilver Glitz Glitter Gel was applied to the smaller flower center and the tips of the larger flower.   The three round accents were made with a 3/8" hole punch from the same paper as the blue and white frame and then glitzed with Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel.  The base of the card is Pacifica CS--one of my favorite Close To My Heart colors.  The card was 5" wide by 6.5" tall.  The "30" and "Celebrate" greeting were popped up with 3D Foam Tape.  I really like how this card came out and will probably replicate for other special birthday cards.



Here is the foil lid that I cut the numbers from (I did set the Cricut machine pressure to 5 as it is somewhat thicker than regular CS).




Please consider playing along with these challenges.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!  Be sure to stop back Friday morning to see what I'll be posting for the new Color My Heart Color Dare!
