My Once In A Lifetime

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog!

Today I have an anniversary card which I made for my hubby to celebrate our 49th anniversary.   For this card I combined using dies as well as old school of stamping and fussy cutting for my main image.

Here is how it was created.

Step 1  From white Soft Finish Cardstock cut heart using Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Hearts – 4th largest die.  Using Susan’s Garden Notes Earth & Sky Stencil and PanPastels Set 2 blue for sky green for grass.

Step 2  Using black ink stamped couple on bench twice onto white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Using alcohol markers color both images then fussy cut both.  Kids Choice Glue adhere 1 image to heart.

Step 3  Using clear Nuvo Crystal Drops add raindrops to heart and umbrella of second image.  Set aside to dry.

Step 4  Form 6″ X 6″ tent fold card base.  Emboss front of card with embossing folder of your choice.

Step 5  For inside of card cut white cardstock 5-3/4″ X 11-3/4″ score in half.  Using Garden Notes Earth & Sky Stencil along with Garden Notes PanPastels Set 2 add clouds and grass.

Step 6  Cut Pop Up in center lining up in center fold using largest die in Elizabeth Craft Designs General Pop Up die set.  Work folds in pop ups.  Add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to back staying away from the pop ups.  Adhere to inside of card lining up the creases and edges.  NOTE:  work 1 side at a time removing protective covering from adhesive.

Step 7  From black cardstock cut 2 ( 1) piece with Clear Double Sided Adhesive and (1) without adhesive Happy Anniversary from Suzanne Cannon Happy Anniversary die set.  Adhere one with adhesive on back to top of one without adhesive.  Cut very narrow strips of clear plastic adhere to back of words using Kids Choice Glue on anniversary add narrow plastic vertical strip back side centered (this will give you something to use to adhere to pop up) adhere to front pop up using Kids Choice Glue.  Adhere happy using Kids Choice Glue to top pop up.

Step 8  Cut 2 –  49th from black cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back adhere one on top of other then adhere to card at base of pop up.

Step 9  Once raindrops are dry on second image add dimensional tape to back adhere directly over first image on heart.

Step 10  Adhere heart to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 11  Using black ink stamp sentiment on 3/4″ X 1-3/4″ white Soft Finish Cardstock then adhere  to black cardstock cut 1″ X 2″.  Using dimensional tape on back adhere to lower right of card front.
