Happy Anniversary!

It has been a while since I posted anything so I’m going to try and go back and fill in some of the blanks. I made this card for my husband for our 4 year anniversary in May. Most of our wedding was handmade by us and our friends which gave it a really special feeling.

So I wanted to make a card which fits in with the themes from the wedding and matched the stationery I had made for the big day. For this, I cut a piece of the pearlised gold card I  used for the wedding invitations down to a size slightly smaller than my backing card. I set the card on top of a border of white and silver lace pattern Washi tape. Using the same punch I bought from hobby craft to make the save the date cards, I cut out Butterflies on red and silver glitter and mirror card.

I arranged the butterflies onto the Gold pearlised card and added coloured rhinestones to the butterflies and the card stock to form a trail which I embellished with the Nuvo metallic drops.

I added the lawn fawn Sophie’s sentiment: happy anniversary to a small piece of the gold card and backed this onto the Washi tape so it formed a border, threading a piece of silver ribbon between the layers and attaching it to the main card.

I’m really happy with how things have turned out both with the card and the husband who I’m very lucky to have. Let me know if you like the card or if you try to tie the things you make back in with events and past projects.

Till next time make something with love
