Anniversary birds

Hi everyone, I thought I'd share the card I made for my in-laws wedding anniversary, which was yesterday...

I've been playing with my new wonderful hubby, Ted, bought me a Big Shot Pro and some large dies for Christmas. This is the first card I've made using it. The die is a Go Kreate one. I've cut the largest one twice on white card. I folded one in half and glued it to the back as the stand. You'll see what I mean in the next photo...
 I then cut out the next size down on bronze metallic paper and the smallest one from a gorgeous 8x8 pad by First Edition called Spring Feast. I used Forest Moss to distress the edges of this layer.
 I then used a Marianne die to cut the birds on the loveheart using another First Edition pad, this time 6x6 called Daydream. I used the metallic bronze paper again to cut the Spellbinder heart for this to sit on.
 I've finished off with a few self adhesive pearls and a peeloff sentiment.

I would like to enter this for the following:-

  6. Beautiful project, Helen! I've had my Big Shot Pro for about two years and I love it! I wait to find the dies on special though, because some of them can be really expensive. My regular Big Shot still remains my favorite. This is a wonderful first Pro Card! Thanks for playing at our house at 613 Avenue Create. We look forward to your next visit!
