I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

75th Anniversary Card

Hi all,

On July 31st, my husband's Great Aunt and Uncle celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary. My Mother-in Law, asked me to make them a card, because you can't find anniversary cards that go up that high in the stores. The big party was in Florida, so unfortunately we could not make it.

Here is the card I made. The pictures aren't the best, all the fabrics and papers on the card are so light that my camera had a hard time focusing.

I picked up these fabulous fabric-like paper at Hobby Lobby with a silver sparkly floral design on it.

I cut a frame from Elegant Edges in a piece of silver linen paper. I cut the 75th from Cake Basics, and Happy Anniversary was cut from Beyond Birthdays. Both were cut from Bazzil Bling paper

Here is a close up of the birds on the front:

They were cut from Tie the Knot,using DCWV shimmer paper. I cut the branch three times and the birds twice. I then layered them using pop-dots.

I finished the card off with some White Satin ribbon and Green shimmery ribbon that matched the branch.

Congratulations to Great Uncle Allen and Great Aunt Gladys! I hope you enjoyed your very special day! May we all be as blessed as you two!

Thanks for visiting today.

Have a Great and Crafty Day.
