Celebrate!

Good morning friends~  Birgit here with you today and I've got a 
Bridal Shower gift set to share with you.  

The neat thing about this gift set is that the grooms last name is Swan so I thought the Swan from Quickuts would be a perfect starting point.  Act fast if you want to pick up one of these beautiful dies from Dies R Us as they are currently on closeout so it's a really good deal!


I started by cutting the frame using Sue Wilson Australian Collection Background Die out of shiny gold card stock.  This card measures 5x7" and the frame fits it perfectly.  I then stamped a polka dotted background onto a piece of blue card stock using versamark ink and then heat embossed the polka dots in gold.  After cutting, coloring and assembling the Quickutz swans I added a die cut "Celebrate", also cut from shiny gold card stock.  The card came together very quickly.
You can't give a gift without a tag to match.  As you can see it the photo,
 I used the gift bag as my jumping off point for colors and design.

The "bride to be" loved the gift and especially the card.  Big smiles all around!
Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Swan!

Here's the dies I used to create this card that can be found at Dies R Us

    1. Third time lucky - I seem to be having trouble posting my comment this morning!
      How wonderful to match your card and tag with their surname! I love your card Birgit, the swans make a fabulous centrepiece in the gorgeous gold frame. I particularly like the polka dot background stamp too, something I have not seen before. What a useful stamp that must be.

    2. Beautiful color! I love how the last name matches your beautiful swans and how you put them together creating that little heart--love birds! I also love the double layered tags, so fun and so pretty! The blue and gold are just spectacular together!!!

    4. Birgit, the colors you used are perfect and so pretty. Love the gold with the blue. And what a great idea to use swans in this case. I'm sure this is something the couple will hold on to forever.
