50th Anniversary Card:

Hi there,

Well, I am finally getting a chance to play with some of the fun things I bought at the convention. I needed to make a card for my brother and sister-in-law for their 50th wedding anniversary so I wanted something super special. Here’s what I came up with. I used several new things which was really fun!!

The card is a 5X5 purplish color cardstock as a base with a pretty rose print paper cut ¼ inch smaller all the way around.

Cut the 3 ½ in scalloped circle Nestabilitie (this circle will eventually have tiny pearls on each scallop)

The next circle is the next smaller size, the 3 in scalloped circle cut out of cream paper.

Now here’s where I tried something new. It’s a stamp set from Endless Creations with multi sized circle frames surrounded by dots. The Nestabilities set of scalloped circles matches in size so you use the matching stamp. Using the discard portion after cutting as a guide…you put the circle you want inside and stamp it. I hope this makes sense. For instance I used the purple discard piece (same size) and put the cream piece I wanted to stamp the circle frame on inside and then stamped…it turned out perfect every single time. Maybe you can eyeball it, but this works pretty slick.

I ran the cream circle through the Cuttlebug in the Stampin up Manhatten Flower embossing folder. It has a huge rose on it that went with my paper. It’s gorgeous. That really added texture. Fill in the double circle lines around the edge with Tombow purple 565.

To finish off cut four lacy corners from Heartfelt Creations. (Die Cuts) They are popped up on each corner. That’s my other new find at convention. I’ll be playing with a lot of their things. They have stamps to match their dies that I can’t wait to play with.

The Happy 50th words are cut in the purple of the card with Cricut.

Then inside I picked up my rose print paper design, found a saying I liked in my ANNIVERSARY sayings section and cut it out on a Nestabilitie.

Have fun. Hope you like it.

Thanks. Mary Lynn
