Since we are on the roll of anniversaries this month. I would like to share with you an anniversary card I made for my In-Laws. They will be celebrating their 48th anniversary on the 26th of June. Congratulations to you both!!!
I cut the card base from Life's A Party (page 62) @ 5" in white cardstock. Then I cut it again in white using the card/shift key @ 4 3/4". Ran it through my cuttlebug to give it some dimension.
But before I did that, I had to stamp Happy Anniversary on the top with black ink.
For this part of the card, I used my Sweetheart cartridge (page 35) @ 4 3/4" to cut the couple. The pattern paper was cut at 4 x 3 3/8. I attached the couple to the pattern paper and centered them in the middle of the heart. I removed the legs of the couple that were hanging.
Before attaching everything to the main card I wrapped "Michael's" ribbon and made a bow. Then I adhered foam tape and attached it to the main card. I finished it up with a pearl from Recollection and White Opal liquid pearls in the center of the divots.
For the inside, I again used Life's A Party along with my gypsy and hid the heart shape. I cut one at 4 1/2" in black and one at 4 1/4" in white. Attached them to the inside of the card. This is where I will write our personal thoughts to them.
I hope you enjoy making this card as much as I did. Just think, this could also be used as a wedding card by using the brides color and stamping "On Your Wedding Day". The thoughts are endless............ Happy Anniversary again to both my Husband and my In-Laws!!!
