Anniversary Card

June 26, 2012

It was my Mum and Dad’s Wedding Anniversary last week (58 years I think) and this is the card that I made for them.

I inked “congratulations” from the Perfect Punches stamp set using my Elegant Eggplant Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped onto Whisper White card.  I attached this to scored and folded Elegant Eggplant card.  I cut a narrow strip of Elegant Eggplant card and punched both long edges using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I attached the punched card to Whisper White card and embossed the piece using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I wrapped the embossed card with Whisper White 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, tied a knot, added a layer of Elegant Eggplant card and then attached it to the card front.  I cut Perfect Plum card using the Scalloped Heart of Heart embosslit.  I punched Whisper White card with the Full Heart Punch and then placed it inside the Scalloped Heart of Heart embosslit to add the tiny embossed dots.  This piece was then attached to the Perfect Plum heart.  I punched Perfect Plum card using the Heart to Heart punch and embossed the large and small heart inside the Scalloped Heart of Heart embosslit.  After attaching the hearts to the card front using dimensionals, I added a few Basic Rhinestones to add a little bling.

I think this card is missing something but it’s the best I can come up with at the moment.

Bye for now, Kris.

    I love all the texture in this card Kris. I am a sucker for all that is dry embossed!! Just adds that wee bit of “zing”. Eggplant and WW are so good together…esp for such a speccy card. That many years married HAS to be celebrated.
    As for what may be missing…the only thing I wld suggest (and v v hesitantly) is perhaps a repeat of the rhinestones in the top WW embossed corner. perhaps one the same size as the one in the heart and then a smaller one to the topside and underside of it (to kind of make a corner)….but as I said….ONLY as an alternate. I love it the way it is!!! ooxx
