50 anniversary - card 7

Well I thought it was about time I drew my 50th anniversary card series to a close with the last of the cards that I made for a lovely couple a few months back. 

Love Birds Anniversary

Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Soft Suede, Versa Mark
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake
Punch: Bird Builder, Modern Label
Big Shot: Perfect Polka Dots, Designer Frames, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet
Accessories: Pearls
Extras: Gold Emboss Powder

So I used the bird punch to make the birds and the branch for them to sit on. I thought it worked better having the branch curving up the side of the oval frame. It looks like the birds are sitting in a little nest! I embossed polka dots in the background for some added texture and stamped the sentiment on a modern label punch below the birds. I didn't really think that a "50" would work here so I opted to add the 50 inside the card instead! 

I hope you have enjoyed seeing lots of pretty 50th anniversary cards recently. I've got a couple more orders to do so I will be digging out my neutrals and gold embossing powder again this week! How fun!

Happy Stampin',

  1. Love how the leaves curve around the embossed frame! Beautiful card!

    1. Thanks. When I first joined SU the bird builder was one of my first purchases and I haven't used it for AGES! It was great to crack it out again!! xx
