So, I have a couple of anniversary cards to make. Last year this time, I was headed to Texas for two weddings (and luckily, not a funeral - get it?? a movie title!) I forgot to take a picture of one of the cards today before I mailed it. I made it using the (retired) Wild Rose stamp set that I got for $3 recently at Stampers Alley's used stamp sale. What a deal!! But, here is the second anniversary card I made using the wonderful Sizzix Daisy Die.
I love this die and used it to cut out 3 different sizes of the daisy in Real Red. The leaves are Pear Pizazz punched out with the Owl Punch. The heart border punch is non SU. I used the Polka Dot background stamp (retired) on the white cardstock for the background and then ran it through a Polka Dot embossing folder for some added texture. The brad in the middle is also retired from SU - I think I got it in the Clearance section.
I have also been making birthday cards. I have about 10 birthdays in June! Here is the one I made tonight using the Wild Rose stamp set ($3!!!).
This is my favorite style of stampin - two step stamping. It is what got me involved with Stampin' Up to begin with. The colors I used on the flower are Peach Parfait and Pumpkin Pie. The leaves are Pear Pizazz and Wild Wasabi.
