I love Lever Cards! The tutorial was on Split Coast Stampers a few weeks ago, written by my friend Laura Lipe. I changed up the card by using die for cutting the opening and increasing the card size to 5 by 7 inches.
I used Spellbinders die and a Quietfire Designs stamp for "Congratulations". I love using the elegant look from each company together!
Spellbinders has discontinued most of their alphabets, but I bought several before they were gone. These numbers come from one of those sets. Just another reason to buy it when you see it!
here. It also features a lever card.
Today happens to be our 37th anniversary! So, I used the tutorial from today's Split Coast Stampers Newsletter for a triple easel card. I tried doing this with hearts back last fall when I visited with Laura Lipe, but I had better luck using the octagon die from Spellbinders. It was easier to see the half way marks.
I used photos from our recent trip to the zoo with the three grandchildren. We took them on the carousel so I made reference to life's ups and downs on the back of the card where I wrote my message. I hope Jim likes it and will display it in his office.
If you are celebrating an anniversary this summer, I hope you have a lovely one!
