Last week Phil and I celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary – and this is the card I made for him using Turtle Friends.
This set is so versatile and can be used for any number of occasions and it has a good selection of sentiments to go with the images. I love my Blending Brushes so applied some Daffodil Delight and Soft Succulent to my Basic White base for the background. Did you know that Emeralds are the stone for 20th wedding anniversaries – hence the ‘green’ theme. Mr Turtle has been stamped in Memento Black, coloured with Smoky Slate Stampin Blends then punched out with the coordinating Turtle Punch. I then restamped his shell in Evening Evergreen and applied Shimmery Crystal Effects to his shell. Just make sure you give this plenty of time to dry – I left mine overnight.
The ‘hearts’ stamp has 3 individual hearts so by stamping the image six times I got to 18 – 2 short – so Plan B has needed. I covered two of the hearts with a piece of Washi Tape, inked up the stamp, removed the Washi Tape (the most important step) stamped away and then repeated this to get my two additional hearts. I also did this on the inside.
I used a favourite retired set Well Wishes to stamp the inside of the card. Washi Tape to the rescue again – to get my ‘TH’ after the number I covered the ‘anks’ from the ‘Thanks’ stamp.
We had a lovely day celebrating and remembering our happy day – bring on the next 20 years 🙂
Until next time …
