I guess you could say I’ve been busy lately. I hope that I will be able to post a few more cards this week. At least that’s the plan. This is the first of several anniversary cards that I need to do this month. I’m hardly ever on time with them, but I try.
This cute couple are by The Paper Shelter. They have so many lovely images. I won a couple, and then of course I had to go purchase a few more. This works really well for an anniversary card; for a friend or for your mate.
I don’t really enjoy doing all white cards, but there was a challenge I wanted to enter this week, so I decided to give it a go again. I’m not completely pleased with the way it turned out, because I like to have several layers of matting and paper. All of the dies on the page are by Cheery Lynn Designs. The one border punch is by MS. I used Creative Inspirations Paint on the “Sweet William” flower die and then put clear gems in the center. The flower’s base is the center cut-out from the “Scandinavian Hearts” which, along with the leaf swirl I’ve glittered; I also added the laurel leaves in white.
I used a Cricut embossing folder with hearts for the backing of the couple. I topped the corners with Candy Buttons. The ribbon I used for my bow (using Bow-Easy), is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts. And finally the stamps are from Stamping Scrapping.
