Anniversary Wishes

>> Monday, November 4, 2013

Happy Monday! Hope you have had a great weekend. I've been busy working on a First Anniversary card for my daughter and son in law. This time last year we were all excited and doing last minute preps for the wedding. It's hard to be believe it's been a year already!

I got the idea for my card from the Winter 2013 Cardmaker Magazine which features pop up cards. I really like the way this card has something hanging down freely on the inside, so I went with it.

The card base is made with Pretty in Pink CS with some layers of white and pink CS. On the top layer I stamped the 1st Anniversary sentiment in Memento Black ink, masked that portion off before stamping the Interlocking Hearts Background in Pretty in Pink ink. I scored the border of the sentiment to give it a bit more definition. I got the idea for this from Split Coast Stampers' Ways to Use challenge this past Thursday. To complete the front I added a pink bow.

The inside was a bit more complicated, at least for me it was. Thankfully Cardmaker Magazine had detailed instructions. I'd have been lost without them!!

First I cut two white panels and embossed them with an older CB embossing folder that has flowers and hearts. The Happy Anniversary sentiment was stamped in Memento Black ink on pink CS, die cut with a Nestie label and attached to the inside. There are two small clear rhinestone hearts on the sentiment label. The top border was created using a punch. The small hanging hearts were cut with the smallest Nesties scallop heart die. The words "love," "hugs," and "kisses" were stamped on the hearts. Two hearts were glued together with a piece of white bakers twine in between. The hearts are attached to the fold out border with tape. Here's a close up of the hearts.

I really like the way this turned out and I know my daughter will too!!

Be sure to check out this week's challenge. It's a super easy one - just share a Halloween card you've created!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Until next time,
