Wow! What a crazy beginning to our summer. So far three weddings and three big anniversaries. I have to admit - I love make wedding and anniversary cards! It's just another excuse for me to use my Big Shot and fancy dies.
For this wedding card, I cut out a large shape - any die will do, I used Spellbinders Label 20. The negative space is nice to show some really pretty designer paper.
This next card was made for a special couple's 50th wedding anniversary. This card uses several different dies - from Spellbinders - Fancy Framed Tags 2 and Oval Ironwork. From Stampin' Up, the oval nesting dies and from Creative Expressions, Gemini Pavo die. The paper is vanilla or ivory colored cardstock with gold shimmer paper. The "50" is heat embossed in gold.
This next card is made with the Eastern Palace suite - die and stamp set bundle from Stampin' Up. The papers are also from the same collection - just beautiful designer papers. The stamps are from several sets. I couldn't find my Happy Anniversary stamp so I improvised and I think it makes the card very unique. The medallion dies are layered with dimensionals to give it some life. I am really enjoying this set - hope to post more samples soon.
I hope you get a chance to experiment with your dies. Mixing and matching is really a lot of fun and you get something totally unique and stunning.
