5Oth Wedding Anniversary – Tri-fold Shutter Card





Happy Anniversary Mum and Dad!!

My parents recently celebrated their 50th wedding Anniversary and I wanted to make them a card that was a little bit special….. so this is my attempt at a Tri-fold Shutter Card.

I’ve used a number of different techniques:

Stamping and watercolouring the rose three times. I then cut out sections and used dimentionals to adhere them together. This raises the separate sections and up on top of one another to get depth to the rose.

I stamped the sentiment and then used a sponge to create a soft edge effect.

I’ve used two ‘Build a Brads’ and cut out flowers from a section of the design series paper…. (check them out in the Stampin’ Up! Online Catalogue – my link is to the right of screen) .. very cool.

Stamp set: Fifth Avenue Floral

Ink: Rose Red, Basic Black, Pink Pirouette.

Ribbon: 1.6cm Grosgrain ribbon Regal Rose.

Accessories: Build a Brad, clip out of the Clip Assortment range.

Design Series Paper: Tea Party.
