A 60th Wedding Anniversary

My neighbor recently asked me to make an anniversary card for a couple at her church. The card above is what I came up with. I started with a piece of glossy white card stock and a 5" x 7" white base card. On the glossy card stock I computer-generated the message. I place '60th' at the center so I could put a heart around it. The heart is a T.S.C. Designs brass stencil that I embossed and sponge colored with cranberry ink. After the heart was done, I Cuttlebug embossed each side and added gold brads. I backed this piece with a burgundy card layer and attached it to the base card.

Young at Heart

A new year...and lots of birthday cards to make. Today I thought I'd try a new layout and use my newest butterfly image from Hero Arts. The butterfly was stamped using burgundy ink then die cut with a Nestabilities circle. I backed the butterfly with a burgundy scalloped circle. I love the Charles Dickens quote at the bottom, To the young at heart, everything is fun.
