My daughter Sarah and her husband Sean celebrated 14 years of marriage earlier this week. It seems like only yesterday I watched them exchange their vows and yet they have achieved so much and made my husband and I very proud.
Anyway, I thought I would share the card that I made them to celebrate this milestone. I was inspired by this gorgeous ensemble by Nicki Spencer which I found on Pinterest. I encourage you to check out Nicki’s blog, she is truly a gifted papercrafter.
I embossed Whisper White card using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Whisper White card. I stamped the “happy anniversary” from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set onto Whisper White card using Elegant Eggplant ink. I cut a “v” and attached it to Elegant Eggplant card, trimmed to match, and then to the card front.
I cut a heart from Elegant Eggplant card using one of the Hearts Collection Framelit Dies and attached Gold Baker’s Twine behind it to create some interest. The heart is attached to the left hand side of the card front using Dimensionals. I cut a smaller heart, using the same dies, from the Gold Glimmer Paper and attached it slightly over the Elegant Eggplant Heart.
To decorate the inside of the card I used the Edgelit Finishing Touches to cut one long edge of Elegant Eggplant card before attaching it behind the top edge of Whisper White card which has been embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder. I attached another heart cut from Gold Glimmer Paper over the embossed card.
I love this card and so did Sarah and Sean – thank you Nicki for the inspiration. Why don’t you leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Bye for now,
