I made a 50th Anniversary card using Altenew stamps, Beautiful Day and Thinking of You stamp sets. I wish you could see this card in person, it is so beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice.
I actually made a video on how to make this card just playing around. My intention was to make the card and not talk and I talked the entire time! It's not edited yet but if you're interested in seeing it, I can publish it in the near future. I don't think I did too bad for the first one but there are about 3 things I need to edit out lol.
I took a lattice die and cut it out using acetate and then used that acetate die cut as a stencil. How cool is that! I used Cosmic Shimmer Paste in gold and just used a palette knife to spread it over the stencil being sure to cover all of the openings well. The excess goes back into the jar. Cosmic Shimmer Paste spreads like a dream too. These are so easy to work with, I don't have to 'futz' (is this a word) with it very much like I do the Dreamweaver ones. I let it dry for several hours.
Then I used my MISTI and the corners to make sure the sentiments were straight. I colored the flower from Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set with Copic markers in R20, R22, and R24 and used Y17 in the center. I used some gold Stickles to line some of the petals. I think this adds a lot to the flower and card. I cut out leaves from the Royal Leaves die set from My Favorite Things and then used foil with the Mini Minc. I love this green and gold foil. I originally colored the leaves in the Beautiful Day set with Copics but decided the foiled ones would look better. I embossed the sentiments with Stampendous Detail Fine Gold Embossing Powder. This works so well for me on tiny words/letters.
I used Gina K Designs gold card stock and it is just gorgeous and such a great weight. Inside I used a sentiment from Close To My Heart stamp set called, The Happy Couple Anniversary I believe. I love how pretty this font is. I usually don't use stickers but I had these 50 Years stickers and thought it would look good because the Years font is similar to the Happy Anniversary font. I got these at a big box store.
I cut out a Scribble Rose from My Favorite Things and added a few of the foil leaves I cut out from the Royal Leaves die set.
Last of all, I used the Papertrey Ink Envelope Liner Die (LOVE THIS!) and lined with the gold card stock. How pretty is that??
This card was a lot of fun to make. I hope you'll try to make your own stencils with acetate and your dies. One word of advice..... I had to use my Precision Plate to get the acetate to cut right.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
