Hi Crafty Friends,
It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Liz Williams our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges.
Apparently Gold was discovered in California on Jan. 24, 1848. For our challenge this week we are to use some “gold” on our creations.
A couple that attend a club I attend are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary this month, so I wanted to create a special card to give to them. Of course this challenge was the perfect opportunity to create my card for them.
To create my card I have used Karen Burniston's new Circle Tag Pop-up die set to create a tag book pop-up. This die set is one of the new die sets being released at the end of the month, this and all the other new die sets are available for pre ordering now ... link at the bottom of this post. I used vanilla pearlescent cardstock for the base of the card and then used gold cardstock and gold patterned papers to decorate the card.
I used some of the heart dies from the Hearts Pivot Panels die set which is another new die set being released this month. I also used the Numbers die set to add the "60th" to one of the circle panels.
I used the congrats sentiment from the Word Set 1 - Greetings die set to add the sentiment to the card.
For the front of the tag book I used one of the ovals from the Crosshatch Ovals die set as the base for my sentiment. the Congrats is from the new Word Set 9 - Congrats die set.
