Ruby Wedding Anniversary Card

A 40th wedding anniversary card made for friends. I have used the Tattered Lace essentials book die. I have used red and white card alternatively. I have embossed the white pages with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I have attached the pages onto a A4 card. I curved the pages around a rolling pin, I then stuck them down with double sided tape in the centre and foam pads on the ends. I have cut two red scalloped ovals using a Go Kreate die from a nesting set and two flourishes with a Cheery Lynn die. I have printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a scalloped oval, I also cut another white oval for the opposite side and added the numbers which have been cut using Tattered Lace dies. I cut the bookmark in red and white and embossed the white. I attached them to the centre of the pages and then added a congratulations sentiment. I assembled all these elements and then added flowers from my stash and handmade stick pins using Pinflair. I completed my card with Nuvo drops from Tonic and ribbon
