Heartfelt Creations Swans

Today I have for you a beautiful  Golden 50th Anniversary card. I  used  the die and stamps from Heartfelt Creations  newly released Sweet Serenity Collection and the Open Vintage Floret and coordinating die.
When I glanced at the Swans the very first thought that ran through my mind is that Swans mate for life. I thought that they would make a gorgeous 50th Anniversary card.

This close up is to show you the versatility of the Vintage Floret Precut  stamp and coordinating die. Both the vintage rose and the blossom are made from the Vintage Floret stamp and die. You can see that they are two very different looking  flowers from the same stamp and die and that is one of the many reasons that I am so passionate about my Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies. I really appreciate the fact that there is more then one way to use the stamps and dies.

Please stop by the Heartfelt Creations blog for more inspiration.
