"Love" pretty in pink card

Hello Crafty Friends!

It is my day to post at Quietfire Creations and I am sharing a pretty in pink "Love" card using Quietfire Creations beautiful "Love" die,
Love - Metal Cutting Die
Excluding the "Love" die cut, all of the papers used were ivory card stock.  A wonderful medium, Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish (color "Blossom") was used to add the metallic pink luster to the ivory card stock.
Card Instructions:
  1. Create a tent fold card from ivory card stock.
  2. Cut ivory card stock smaller than front of card base.  Apply gilding polish.
  3. After gilding polish is dry (it dries in a zip!), apply gold marker along edges.  Mount to card base.
  4. Die cut ivory card stock.  Mount to base.
  5. Emboss ivory card stock.  Lightly apply gilding polish.  Note: the larger the gaps in between the raised areas, the more likely you will get gilding polish in non-embossed areas.  
  6. Die cut with oval die and mount to card.
  7. Die cut oval frame.  Apply gilding polish.  Add gold marker along edges.
  8. Die cut "Love" using ivory card stock and gold card stock.  Slightly offset both die cuts and mount to card using liquid adhesive.
  9. Create triple ivory bow.  Mount using liquid adhesive.
  10. Create three roses of different size. (Or take roses from your crafty stash.)  Apply gilding polish as desired.  (I applied polish evenly over the entire large rose and just on the edges of the smaller roses.)
  11. Add crystal gems and Sitckles, if desired.

Thank you for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the pretty in pink "Love" card.
Have a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,
