Happy Anniversary

Summertime is such a popular time to get married which is why I seem to have been inundated with requests for anniversary cards lately.

This first card is a very simple decoupage by Craft Creations, found very cheaply (no pun intended) in my local craft shop in Sunderland. The flowers and birds were so easy to cut and it was finished off by matting the image on red card and adding a computer printed greeting.

In this second card I totally left my comfort zone by using coloured card for the base card - usually everything I do is on cream or white card. The image is from the Lovebirds collection from the Digi Stamp Boutique and is coloured with pro markers which perfectly match the Papermania patterned paper. Couldn't resist the ribbon even though it is a bit naff.

Finally, the one I'm most chuffed with is this Golden anniversary card for a friend's parents. I used a mixture of Bazzill and Bazzill Bling white textured card. The embossing is done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and the heart dies are also Cuttlebug The flower is from Dainty Supplies in Washington who do loads of lush wedding accessories and I finished it off with a pearl headed pin. I was inspired to make this card by one of my favourite bloggers, Michelle at The Card Grotto, whose cards are simply gorgeous.
