50th Anniversary or Birthday Card

Autumn with you today to share a card design which you could use for a 50th birthday or anniversary.  You could also CASE this card with our fabulous new 25th die.  Any color scheme will do, this card layout is completely versatile.

I created a lacy background layer by cutting two Flower Orchestra Corner dies.  I snipped out the center flower from each die and tucked it in on each side of my Nesting Stitched Oval die.  This floral die is my absolute favorite die and I love finding new ways to use it!

I cut one of the 50th dies from my Maja Design paper and bumped off of a second white cut.  I sponged the blue a little along the edges to make it pop more.

I carefully attached foam tape to the back of my layers for maximum dimension.  Boy does this pop!  Some pearls and distressed edges complete the look.  I opted out of using 3D flowers so this card would fit in an envelope, but they could be added if you desire.  Thanks for your visit and I hope you are inspired to use your dies in new ways today.  <3

  2. The 50th die is beautiful (and versatile), it looks great the way you 'bumped' it to create the shadow and the blue background is wonderful! Anne xx

  3. Autumn, I love how you've used the dies together to create this beauty. The white really does make everything pop. I also love the simplicity and versatility of this design. Beautiful! Hugs :-)

  4. love how you used the corner die behind! I have to remember this. I just used one the other direction but this is so cool too! TFS!
