Today is a very special day – Phil and I are celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary :). We are enjoying some time in the South Island at beautiful Te Anau. Tomorrow we hope to go to Milford Sound and do the boat cruise.
Here is the card that I made for Phil. I’ve gone with a Red and Silver theme this year.
The image and sentiment are from the Bloomin Love set. I’ve heat embossed the heart image in Silver Embossing Powder then adhered the Real Red flowers which were ‘cut’ out using the coordinating Bloomin Hearts Thinlits dies. The outline and image on the banner were heat embossed in clear powder after I stamped the image in Real Red. I then stamped the words and heat embossed them in silver. The banner is cut out with the coordinating die from Large Numbers Framelits and adhered with dimensionals. As I was trying to decide what to use for the background I found some retired Silver Vellum – it went perfectly with my design. Vellum is hard to adhere without showing the adhesive but with this card you can’t see where my adhesive is. That’s because I used Glue Dots folded in half to fit under the silver embossed hearts on the vellum 🙂 I have a few other ways of adhering vellum which I’ll share with you on another post.
The sentiment used on the inside is from Suite Saying. It actually has another word on the stamp but I only wanted the ‘Forever’. To achieve just the one word I used my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker and inked up just the area I wanted.
Well we are off for a drive today to Lumsden and Invercargill. The weather today isn’t that great and we woke to some snow on the mountains :).
I’ll try and do some more posts in the next couple of days but the WiFi isn’t that great.
