Hi, Renee here to share a couple of lovely Anniversary cards I made using the Spring Fling collection. I love the way these geometric shaped cards turned out. I can’t wait to give them to some of my family members who are celebrating their wedding anniversaries this summer.
Here’s my first card…creating with a hexagon shape.
- I started with a hexagon template (each side of my hexagon measures about 3 ½” – I increased the image size 150% before printing) and a piece of blue cardstock (folded measures 6″ x 6 7/8″)
- I placed the template on top of my card base making sure that the card will flip up to open before I cut.
- I trimmed off the corners of the card.
I trimmed the Spring Fling pattern paper to 5 ¾” x 6 5/8″, trimmed the Happy Thoughts pattern paper to make a tree branch, and adhered them onto my card base. I added machine stitching around my hexagon shaped card.
I used my Flower Punch Board to add leaves to the tree branch. I added a flower and two owl stickers to my card. I added a gold heart sticker and a gold “love” sentiment sticker to finish off the card.
Here’s my second card…creating with square shapes.
I started by trimming the yellow cardstock to 6″ x 12″. I folded it in half so my card can be 6″ x 6″ square shaped. I layered the Spring Fling pattern paper (trimmed to 5 ¾” x 5 ¾”) and the Strawberry Fields pattern paper (trimmed to 5 ¼” x 5 ¼”) and added machine stitching all around my card.
I used my Minc Machine to add Gold Foil to some flowers and added them to the bottom of the card along with some fussy cut leaves. I added two sweet giraffe die-cuts, another gold heart sticker, and a gold “Celebrate” sentiment sticker to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoyed these Anniversary cards. Check out these Birthday Cards also made using the Spring Fling collection.
