Instructions: Card size: 5 1/2 x 7”. Make card base out of 2 pieces of white card stock both 5 1/2 x 7” then score 1 piece at 1/2" on long side, use this piece to be the front. Texture front piece with an embossing folder (this diamond design folder is from Cuttlebug, a 5 x 7” folder). Use the Eyelet edge of the Fleur Border Basics to die cut the edge and make a border all at once. Make a window using the Rounded Lattice Window Die from white. Make a heart window by cutting out the largest Eyelet hear from white and while die is still in place lightly mark around the inside of the die then hand cut at the line and erase all showing pencil. Glue your Heart window to the Lattice Window and cut off excess. Make one more heart frame for the back side of the window. Place the heart die on the curved edge of the card front and draw a line inside the die again then cut away on the line. Glue the Eyelet Heart with insert onto the open space of the card front then glue the extra heart frame on the back to make a nice finish. Now, glue the front to the back of card using the 1/2" tab made from scoring.
Glue a piece of decorative paper 5 1/2 x 7” to the inside then stamp Happy Anniversary using Deep Purple (on the top half toward the inside so that it is not seen front the front when the card is closed). Cut a piece of vellum 5 1/2 X 7, glue it to the inside, folded edge over decorative paper.
Stamp double swan using London Gray Memento, color the flowers and swans with Copic Markers (or your favorite coloring system), die cut then shape the back slightly using the large ball stylist and mat from the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Then adhere foam tape (or favorite pop up) to the back of swans and most of the flowers, (Double pop the center portion of the swans). Use a fine line of glue for the bottom of the swans then adhere them to the vellum bottom right (make sure to hold down the bottom of the swans until glue is set).
Using a sea sponge, dab vellum all over (except swans) with Dries Clear then sprinkle with Ultrafine glitter. Add a small line of pearls to the top outside edge then add some glue under the pearls and the swans to hold vellum down (if desired, it is fine unglued too). Add single pearls to the heart/lattice window and add the Nuvo drops to the embossing. Stamp sentiment “On Your Special Day” using Deep Purple onto a piece of matching decorative paper, cut it top and bottom to make a banner and fish tail cut the ends. Curl it and glue it to the window. Make sure the card is NOT closed when you glue the sentiment on or you might glue the card closed.
