Happy Anniversary!

This is a magic card I have made for my Sister and her husband who are celebrating their Anniversary on 1st June.

This is the first ever magic card I have made and I am quite pleased with the result, I hope they will be too!

I have made the card shape using my BRAND NEW (John treated me to it yesterday for no good reason, he is wonderful!) GRAND CALIBUR (TM) machine and Spellbinder (TM) dies!
I also made the backing layer using some Carol Pinnick (TM) card and cut the shape again with my BRAND NEW GRAND CALIBUR (TM) machine and Spellbinders (TM) dies!
( I know I have gone on about it but I love my new GRAND CALIBUR (TM) machine and my new Spellbinder (TM) dies!)

I made the "Magic" part of the card by stamping the image on to the Acetate with black Stazon (TM) ink and then also on to Neenah (TM) stamping card with Memento (TM) ink as I wanted to colour the bottom image with my Pro markers (TM).

I adapted the instructions for the magic card from:
which is quite a find as it has endless ideas for unusual style cards ~ check it out!

The new stamps are from a set given as a freebie on the front of "Simply cards and Papercraft" issue 98.

I added a sentiment takes from a free pack I got with a crafting mag and added a little raffia string to the pull section of the magic card.

I finished the card with some paper flowers and some gems.
