One of the girls at work needed an Anniversary card and she asked me to make one for her. I just received my Elegant Soiree` DSP and could not wait to use it! The sentiment is not stamped, I saw it on an anniversary card in the store and decided to use my printer. I thought the sentiment was fitting as they have been married for 27 years. I used the Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon but was not happy that I could still see where the two papers came together so I just added the Victoria Crochet Trim over the top of it.
I used the striped pattern for the male shirt and brads for buttons and the other heart I lined up the dots just right so I could put some crystals on it to make it very feminine. Cathy loved her card. She said her husband usually does not pay much attention to the cards that she normally gives him, however, this one he put up on his dresser so he could see it!
Thanks for stopping by :-)

I love to make Halloween cards and the new stamp sets were calling my name! Greeting Card Kids & Wicked Cool. The bats in Wicked Cool remind me of the Scooby Doo Cartoon, one of my favorites as a child. I started with Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the girl with Black Stazon. Next I watercolored the image (light on the water since this is Whisper White) with my SU Classic Inks. I then took a Versamark Pen and colored over the image and then applied Clear Embossing powder and heated. I punched out a 1 3/4" Circle and applied Dotto adhesive to the back and then brayered the whole card in Daffodil Delight. Using sponge daubers I then sponged on the Wild Wasibi for the grass, Pumpkin Pie was next around the whole card, then Crushed Concord and some Early Espresso. I removed the Moon mask and sponged the moon lightly with Daffodil Delight, to give it a little depth I sponged a little darker in some spots. Then stamped the bats flying in the moon. The Scallop Oval around my sentiment was punched then I put Dotto on a strip of paper and put the Oval back into the punch at different angles to get the jagged edges. The Sentiment is done with Heat & Stick powder and Black Glitter.
