Butterflies, Pearls and an Anniversary

I made this card for my friend's 30th wedding anniversary. I found the paper at Michaels, it's Recollections "Teal Butterflies". It seemed to scream for some SU Calypso Coral & Pool Party card stock. I embossed the Pool Party layer with butterflies and added some punched from Calypso Coral card stock and in-color DSP. To pop the butterflies up, the top half is on dimensionals, the bottom is just glue dots - it really made them stand out a bit. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny wishes set & is stamped with Midnight Muse. It is punched with the Word Window punch and then placed on a piece of Calypso Coral punched with the Modern Label punch. The ribbon is Tangerine Tango from the current Sale-a-bration catalog. Since the traditional gift for a 30th anniversary is pearl, there are orange pearls on the butterflies & the label.

Happy Valentines Day

Here's the card that I made for my hubby. The base is Cherry Cobbler, with a layer of white that was embossed with the SU Holiday Frame folder and the corners were punched with an EK corner punch that I borrowed from a friend. A scalloped Cherry Cobbler heart, with a small heart punched out of some Recollections paper is attached to the center. The "keys to my heart" are a Sizzix die cut out of some yellow glitter cardstock. Hope you have a great day.
