60 th wedding anniversary cards part 2 and new die

Hello again , fall is gently coming on its socks , although we didn't have a summer. Just these last few days we have had some sun . The fruits of my vine are turning from green to darker and  purple . The cold nights from September should give it the sugars . I tasted one but it was still sour .

I have made some cards I would like to share with you .In my last post I said I forgot to take pictures of 2 other cards I made for the 60th wedding anniversary of my upper neighbour. This one is a belt or tab card . I used a 3 D cutting file and added some silver stickers - wedding rings and corner embellishment - white  and silver coloured lace trim . A fabric butterfly , a metal heart hanger and sheer ribbon . My backing papers are free printable .

This next one is a swing card  : very simple , but it took me some time to make the template according to the size of card I wanted ( 14 by 21 cm ) The beautiful roses 3D file is so gorgeous I didn't want to add much , just the pearls and stickers.

Now there is another couple that is also married for 60 years , and I have just sent them my card : I did a lot of handstitching on this one ! You will see 50 on it but I have altered it to 60 after I photographed it !
The roses are 3D .

Now back to my normal size cards . My girlfriend brought me a 3D cutting file magazine a while ago filled with the cutest cats :  I used a doilie that I coloured with a red brown ink pad . And crocheted a double flower which i secured with a brad . I faux stitched the yellow background paper and distressed the other one . I embellished the cat with a small heart and pearl , leftovers from my stash .

Exceptionally I didn't use 3D , but used a gold  flower  sticker and attached it to some background leftovers and cut out , attached to a white paper base and matted on gold paper and adhered to my prepared card .

Next 2 cards on which I used a new double die , here I used one part of the double die to frame an elegant sticker and matted to a border punched background . Added a simple greeting , a flower made from paper and a small flower sticker attached to pale rose vellum and a pearl , and two pale green see through buttons .
 The die was used on a  leftover piece of wallpaper.

Here you can see the die better , i used  both parts and attached the frame with foam pads to up lift a bit .
I attached small flowers with tiny beads  to the frame.

As it is august ,the month of sunflowers I made this flip card doing a bit of recycling : An un written card bought long time ago .I didn't want to just throw away,  I loved the pictures and came up with this :

I want to end  my post with another 3D cat and kitten , lovely isn't it ?  I chose to stamp the sentiment Big Hugs

So big hugs to all of my readers and fellow crafters ,
Till next time ,
