Happy Anniversary

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing an anniversary card I made for my hubby as we are celebrating 47 years of marriage today.

For the front of my card, I decided to use the Creative Expressions Champagne Celebration Edger die  which I received in an order earlier in the month. I have been eyeing the edger dies from Creative Expressions for a while now and decided it was about time I added one to my stash. I figured this champagne one would be useful for a lot of occasions. 

I die cut the champagne edger from Gold Cardstock and then adhered this to black, and trimmed around the left hand side of the black cardstock, so just the gold showed. I then layered this to some patterned paper and finally to a folded card.

Seeing I make lots of pop-up cards, I couldn't not make a card for such an important occasion without it being a pop-up or something special too. I decided to use Karen Burniston's Heart Pivot Panels. I die cut the main die from black cardstock, and then decorated the panel with hearts using gold, glitter gold and pearlescent cream cardstocks.

I also added three hearts from the new Love Charms die set. The "XOXO" and "Love You" sentiments are from the Word Set 9 - Love die set. I die cut these to sentiments using gold glitter cardstock. 

I added the number 47 to the top of the card using the Numbers die set.

Finally I added the Happy Anniversary sentiment which is from a Neat & Tangled die set.

The rectangle & square panels in the two corners are from the Crosshatch - Squares and Crosshatch - Rectangles die set.
