Today is my 16th wedding anniversary :). I am so blessed to be married to a wonderful caring man. We have spent the day together (I never work my wedding anniversary) celebrating this very special day in our lives.
Here is the card I made for Phil.
I used the card on page 20 of the Occasions Catalogue for my inspiration and made a few changes to make it ‘mine’.
I dry embossed a piece of Lemon Lime Twist with the new Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder – wrapped a piece of linen thread around it then added a bow and adhered it to the card base of Thick Whisper White.
For my coloured heart image I stamped it in VersaMark then added White Embossing Powder and applied the colour (Lemon Lime Twist, Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig & Pink Pirouette) with our Stampin’ Markers. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet set.
The wooden hearts are applied with Tombow Liquid Glue – I’ve found this is the best method to adhere these to card projects.
We have a rule in our house that no store bought cards are to be given for birthdays, Christmas or Wedding Anniversaries – this is easy for me but a bit harder for Phil. This year he contacted one of my downlines and asked her if she would make him a card that he could give me – very sneaky – and this is the wonderful card she created for him. I love the colours and design of this card. I don’t have this set so it’s lovely to receive a card using it.
The images and sentiment are from the Perennial Birthday set – page 17 of the Occasions Catalogue. This set coordinates with the Perennial Birthday Project Kit which makes 16 cards.
