A very special Anniversary Card

Hi all & happy Wednesday! We’re on the downward slide for this week. I can almost see Friday!

I wanted to drop a quick post to share a special anniversary card with you today.  This happens to be my own Anniversary card that I made for my wonderful hubby. Last Friday, we celebrated our 5th Anniversary. I’m sure for some people 5 years doesn’t seem like a big deal, but when you’re so very grateful to have met the love of your life 5 years seems like mere seconds. The past 5 years have flown by, I guess that means we’re havin’ fun or gettin’ old or both, LOL!

I’m so very blessed to have met such a wonderful man. He’s the kindest, most generous man I’ve ever met who is a true gentleman and he makes sure I know I’m loved each and every day.

To create my card I used the George & Scarlett stamp set from Unity Stamps. This set is one created by Angie Blom of Angie Girls. I really love her stamp sets as they are all so unique and fun to color.

I stamped my image onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with my Copics. I added a little clear Wink of Stella to the top of her dress to give it a bit of shimmer.

Once my coloring was done, I cut my cardstock down and added it to a couple of layers of various cardstock in shades of brown and blue.

Next I used a piece of white chipboard and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, “I could not imagine Life without you” and added some blue distress ink to the edges of the chipboard to finish it off. I placed it near the bottom of my card using some dimensional foam.

The final items I added to my card were some simple embellishments using some bakers twine which I tied into a messy bow and glued in place with some glossy accents. Then I had this cool, rather large clear gemstone with a wooden back that I glued on top of my bow and then added a little leafy woodcut as well and glued it just underneath my gemstone.

Inside I included a nice handwritten note to my hubby. This card has found a place displayed on his desk among the other cards I’ve made for him in recent years.

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Thanks for stopping by.

Check back on Friday, October 9th when I’ll be back to share my latest DT Project for Spellbinding Stamps by Nikki Burnette which is a mixed media project that was lots of fun.
