Anniversary Birds

I've been asked to make a Golden anniversary card and as there was no request for personalisation I actually made two so that there would be a choice and the one not chosen will go into my box as a 'spare'.  I turned to Artylicious Decadent Brocade CD (Chocolate Baroque) and printed off a sheet of backing paper and two inserts onto some metallic champagne heavyweight paper.  For this cards I've used the following:-
     Sizzix top note die cut embossed with cuttlebug swirls folder, sponged with DI and edged with gold pen
     Marianne die cut heart
     Two birds on branches using Stampin Up punch
     Numbers cut using X-cut dies popped onto punched circle and die cut shape
     A border  strip with hearts - Martha Stewart punch
     Wording printed from computer punched using Stampin Up punches

I will post the other card another day


  1. Lovely card Val - I'm sure they will be torn as to which one to choose......

  2. This is a lovely classy card

  3. lovely card Val, very different from the usual anniversary cards - do show us the other one!

  4. I love the stylish colours & your embossing of those birds' wings. Super spacing work to get those hearts aligned & your die centred in the middle one - brilliant attention to detail which really makes this such a finished piece.
