This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card. The base of the card is white card stock, I have layered gold "India" paper and dark red cardstock that I edge punched with a Fiskars punch, also I have layered Spellbinders Vines of Passion heart and Spellbinders Decorative Labels One, for contrast I used red and white card stock. I then used white card stock for the leaf flourish, with small white flowers made with a Fiskars punch. The large gold rose I punched 8 layers with The Paper Studio punch and added sparkle glue. The smaller red rose I punched 6 layers with a Marvy punch. Both roses I spritzed each layer with water and wadded them up. then spread out, layered and manipulated the wet layers to form a rose And of course I used bling
The dies are Labels 18 and layered. I'm going to share a secret....because I did not have a stamp that I liked that said Happy Valentine's Day, I did it on the computer and printed it on card stock and die cut it. I love doing this as I am a font-a-holic, as well as a bling-a-holic.

The card edge was antiqued with Lilac Versa Color. I then added a layer embossed with Spellbinders Framed Labels Eighteen. The sentiment is from JustRite Birthday Vintage Labels Four and the die cut is label Eighteen, and framed in Lilac Versa Color. The small flowers are punched from a Martha Stewart punch. The Butterfly is a retired die from Spellbinder.
For the inside of the card I used smaller butterflies from Martha Stewart punches. The sentiment is from the b-day Vintage lbls 4 w/coordinating die.
Since this card is an unusual size, I made the envlope with the Envelope Punch Board.
This card was made with JustRite Birthday Vintage Labels Four and coordinating dies and Spellbinders Floral Oval dies. The flower is a Spellbinders Anemone Flower Topper and topped with a Recollections rose, from Michaels. There are also stick pins I made, a leaf flourish, The corner brackets are from Spellbinder Marvelous Square dies and I added pearls.
The stamp used for the sentiment is from the JustRite Birthday Vintage Labels Four and coordinating die, there is a die cut behind that it is Spellbinders Floral Oval. I used a technique that I found on Amazing Grace blog to color the edge, in this case I used VersaMark and embossed it. I think it turned out pretty good.
Since the card had height, I made a box to match and used some of the same elements. I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page for the edges. The circle with Kyla was stamped with JustRite Monogram stamper and of course bling.

My first Thanksgiving card of the year. I think it turned out well, don't you. It starts out as a 5 1/2 x 12 cardstock and folds into 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I have went crazy with this card shape, because it is so easy and looks complicated. And of course "bling" brings out the best of every card. With the designed paper you don't have to embellish each square.
