Golden Anniversary

Donna Phelan Back again on the Dies R Us Blog

I have been having a lot of FUN using this beautiful Tutti Designs Scrolly Heart die. 
The detail is stunning and looks magnificent, especially cut from Gold Foiled Paper.  

I die cut the Tutti Designs Scrolly Heart from Gold Foiled Paper, which I created by using my Mini Minc, Toner Paper, and some Heidi Swapp Gold Foil.  It really looks spectacular and lets the beauty of the die cut just shine....literally!  I placed the pretty heart on to a Fancy Ribbon Threader die cut by SpellbindersThe entire panel was backed with Gold Foil and Fun Foam to add dimension.  Threaded a Gold Ribbon through the bottom.  

Next I die cut the fabulous flowers, Cheery Lynn Small Gardenia from Gold and Rose Gold Foiled Paper.  Added Metallic Brads to each center. 
I also added some Golden Foliage, dies by Paper Smooches
This particular die, Foliage 2, is no longer available......BUT as always, there are soooo many other options in the Dies R Us Store, click HERE to check them all out.   

Don't you just love all of that beautiful detail?!?!  

Gold Heat Embossed 50th Sentiment on to a Spellbinders Standard Circles die.
Corner Rounder.  

The Fun Foam and die cuts really add so much depth and dimension to this creation!  

Only 20.5 more years and I'll be making one of these for my Husband.  lol
