More Anniversaries

My brother and his wife have been married since July 25, 1964... 49 years this year. I remember it as a bridesmaid... I was 13 at the time. Her mother made all of the dresses for the entire female wedding party... hard to believe! There were five bridesmaids, including the maid of honor. It was such a beautiful day and the wedding was lovely...

Here's my card for them:

The card is one layer on white. I scored and masked a 1-inch space for the sentiment. Then I stamped and masked several flowers from the WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals with multiple colors. I rounded the corners with the Corner Chomper and stamped the sentiment with Hero Arts CL342. It went very quickly and I love the Fresh Cut Florals although I didn't use the dies for this card.

My next anniversary card is for my daughter and her husband for their 6th anniversary. 

Stephanie and Chris have been married six years and are the proud parents of two adorable girls. This is a picture from their wedding dance... looking through the window. The colors of the house are patterned from their new home. It is retired SU Bordering Blue with Black shutters and windowbox. The Madison Window die was perfect for my vision of the happy couple.

The WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals stamp set and die was used with all SU colors, and then layered with dimensionals to provide a 3D look. The sentiment is from Hero Arts CL342 in Staz-On Black ink. Inside the sentiment says - Hugs and Kisses.

Oh my..goodness..I absolutely love your window card, what a creative way to incorporate a photo in a card. I love it! I just purchased that stamp and die set and received it a few days ago,I've been playing around with it, trying out different color combos to get the flowers to look "just right"! if you don't mind me asking what colors of ink did you use? Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful cards!

Hi Shaughn... I am loving that floral stamp and die set! For this card I used all SU colors: Starfruit and summer sun, melon mambo with black center, lovely lavender and concord crush, gumball green and pear pizzazz. I have used other color combinations on last month's cards although many are from my retired SU sets as are some of these.
