Our 25th Wedding Anniversary

Bit quiet on the blog front recently due to the fact that I have only been at home for 2 weeks in the last 6!

Back on 9th October, hubby and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. We went over to the Isle of Wight for a week to celebrate. The weather was beautiful and we had a great time.

Here is the card that I made for hubby. All done in CAP. Printed out and then matted onto silver and black backing card.

Birthday Card

The card I have to show you today is one that I made at a workshop a couple of months ago.

The backing was made with a stencil and ink mist. Great effect. The flowers are Altenew and if I remember we used the green meadows and the Pocketful of Sunshine ink cube set. The 'just for' stamped greeting has been embossed. I have added the 'sister greeting.

Anniversary Card

Today's card is an anniversary card that I made for my niece and her husband. I got the idea from Pinterest and thought it was a lovely way to use up scraps of backing paper. A very simple but effective card I think. 

6 x 6 card blank
Lawn Fawn heart die
Backing paper from scraps pile

Birthday & Anniversary Card

I have 2 cards to show you today. Both of these were for my sister's birthday and her wedding anniversary.

First card was made for my sister's birthday. I made the background using Tim Holtz distress inks. Was quite pleased how this turned out. I then used the Woodware 'Sister' large word stamp. This was cut out of some of the backing paper as were the flowers that were stamped from Stampin Up punch/ The greeting comes from 'Fabulous Sayings' stamp set. A few pearls added and the card was finished. 

The anniversary card was made at a workshop. For this the word 'Love' was printed onto the card and then filled in with flat backed gems. The hearts were added from Lawn Fawn die. Thought this would make a great anniversary card.
