A Celebration of Love!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I'm so happy to be back with you all as we start another fantastic year together!  Today I want to share two different versions of an anniversary card to show you how changing just one background die can change the entire look and feel of a card.  I began both cards with three basic dies which are fairly new & absolutely perfect for anniversary cards:  Impression Obsession Bench, Impression Obsession Couple Sitting & Impression Obsession Love Doves.  The Love Doves would also work for wedding cards and Valentines too!

 For my first card, I used a background die from Spellbinders called Floral Affair.  I have to confess, I bought it as a birthday gift for my BFF and loved it so much I had to order another one for ME!  Sometimes you don't get the full beauty of a die until you actually see it cut!

I'm guessing a lot of you are already headed to the store to order this die!  Right?  Lol !!

The next card I made with the 3 basic anniversary dies has a totally different look.  By changing the background die to Spellbinders Heirloom Rectangle, I got another gorgeous card that is completely different than the one above.  I also used the Spellbinders Heirloom Rectangle to decorate the inside of the card as I will show you next!



That is the beauty of using dies on your cards and projects!  By changing just one die, you can create an entirely different look & the possibilities are absolutely endless!

I hope I have inspired you to create something today!  Be sure to check out the wonderful ideas our team shares each day!  And don't forget to join our current Dies R Us Challenge for a chance to win a gift certificate to the fabulous store!

Happy creating!  See you next week!!
