My brother and SIL are going to be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary in a few days, so I came up with this quick card using my Sizzix Pop n' Cuts die! I didn't have a lot of time to create it so there wasn't a lot of detail involved - mainly preprinted scrapbooking paper. Still, the message is there and I'm certain they will enjoy it. I used a pre-cut Crafty Secrets frame (thank you Ms. Vicki), painted with Ranger snow capped paint. After it dried I rubbed some stickles over it to make it sparkle. Then I traced the frame and cut out a wedding photo of the couple to add behind it. I added some trims to the front of the card using red line tape and tucked a small bunch of mini flowers to the corner. For the inside I stamped an image of a bridal couple (Stamp Camp). Glued that to the top portion and used some metal numbers (Tim Holtz) to add to the 'pop' piece. Since the brads I had weren't the color I wanted, I chose to add gems where there were holes. I used a metallic gel pen around portions to give it more of a silvery look and sponged around the edges of the card with distress inks. Love how it turned out, much better than the photos I took. Simple but sweet!!! Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by:)

They're HERE!!!!

Oh my gosh.....I'm super excited as the new KAREN BURNISTON Pop n' Cuts dies are HERE! The other day I stopped in at a local Hobby Lobby store and there they were. I've been waiting for what seems like FOREVER for these Sizzix dies to hit the stores. My jaw actually dropped when my eye caught a glimse of them haning on the wall. There are just endless possibilities for these! Karen, in my opinion YOU ARE A GENIUS!!! I've already started a couple of cute cards and will post them soon. If you have a Hobby Lobby near by, better run out and get a few of these before they are all sold out (you can even use your 40% coupon on them too.) These are hot, hot, hot!!! Happy crafting everyone and thanks for stopping by:)
