50th Anniversary

Ok, here's a pretty simple card that took me 3 hours to do. That's because after figuring out what the basic sketch would be, I decided to mix things up, switch things around, and experiment with techniques. Eventually I was sick of it all, had lost my creative mojo, and didn't have a clue what I was trying to do! So, back I went to my original sketch and was done in 15 minutes. UGHHHHH--the wasted time! And that's why I'll never be able to post more than a few items here a week.
Anyhow, this card is pretty self explanatory. I used the scor embosser ( I think that's what it's called) directly on the card. I put some white cardstock through the cuttlebug using the birds and swirls folder, then matted it on gold foil cardstock. The swirl and 50 were cut on the cricut using Storybook, and the birds are from Joys Of The Season. I love using those "2 turtle doves" as love birds on cards like this. (Plus I didn't buy the cartridge until after Christmas so I didn't get to use it for the holidays). A nice white and gold card for a golden anniversary--hope they like it! Thanks for taking a peek!

  4. Oh my goodness....this is just stunning!!! All that hard work pays off, that is for sure. Sometimes cards take just as long as a layout to make, but so worth it!!!
