Silver Wedding

Here's two cards made for a family Silver Wedding celebration. The first card was for my MIL to give and the second one is from our family. I was pleased to be able to play with my new toy - a Grand Calibur machine.

I used some white Linen effect Cored'inations card here, cut on the diagonal and then embossed the pink for some added texture. The embossing didn't quite line up so I covered the worst bit with punched flowers!

                Just love the heart die from Memory Box!

All the materials are from stash.

Tools used:

Card 1
Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Parisian Accents
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Divine Swirls
Cuttlebug Alphabet 
Martha Stewart Craft Punch - Cornflower

Card 2
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders - Birds & Swirls,  Love Language (A2 Combo)
Craft Concepts Universal Embossing Folder - Dragonfly
Memory Box die - La Rue Heart
Cuttlebug Alphabet
Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Fleur de Lis Doily Accents
