So there are a few categories of cards that I love making, new baby, thanks, Valentine's and anniversary.
I have no idea why these are my faves.
Today I am showing you an Anniversary card I made for friends of mine. I always like to make this couple a special card, as I am responsible for bringing them together (yep..I am bragging).
I bought a great stamp and die-set by Lil Inker second-hand (my new fave thing) and the white die-cut circle/wreath is what started this card off..
First I got all the elements together, so I die-cut two hearts (Sizzix) in coordinating colours and stamped the freebie sentiment (from JT) onto white card and created a banner.
I stamped the awesome salvaged wood background by Prima and die-cut it using a MFT stitched rounded rectangle die.
After much messing around with the layout of the elements, I had a layout I was happy with, so affixed it to the card, using foam dots.
For a final touch I added white gel dots by Stampin Up, I don't love these, but they work really well here.
The card reminded me of my friend's kitchen, its a bit salvaged wood, with red and white elements..
