This past Sunday - Sept 24, was my son Mark & his wife Anna's first wedding anniversary. I can't believe it's been a year already. I still remember the day so vividly like it was yesterday - boy how time does fly.
Well you know me, I stressed over what kind of card to make for them. I wanted something special, I stewed over this for a week, finally one day last week when I was off, I just pulled some dies, papers and flowers and went to town!
Here is what I came up with:
Not much explaining on this one, although, if you notice the leaf texture on the background paper - well I did that with a stencil and paste. I didn't want it to be white paste, so I took my distress oxide picked raspberry ink and added a bit of ink to my Teflon mat, then mixed in some dream weavers pearlescent paste. I didn't use the whole stencil, just bits a pieces of it as I saw fit. Love the outcome!
Paper is from Kaisercraft - P.S. I love you.
I used a Cherry Lynn doily die cut from white card stock and cut it in half. I also used Penny Black - love is growing die - which is the grey vines with hearts. I used a corner rounder for the other 2 layers, then added flowers, leaves, ribbon and some little shimmer dots (from the dollar store - love these, they come in a variety of colour in 2 sizes). I added some glitter with my wink of stella clear pen to the flowers.
I found some crystal stick pens at our local store, so grabbed a couple of those last week as well, cut off the pen part and then glued the crystal heart to the bottom right corner.
So there you have it!
I'm sharing a couple of my favourite pictures of that wonderful day!
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your week!
