Another Anniversary

Today’s card is an anniversary card for my sister and brother-in-law. (You don’t read my blog, do you Deb?)

I saw a card on Jeanne Streiff’s blog last week that I really loved and I finally got a chance to case it. My card can’t compare with hers, but I do like the way it turned out.

The background paper is from Lasting Impressions. I also used a textured black paper, and Stampin’ Up!’s Very Vanilla. Everything was stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink. I used a stamp set that I bought at JoAnn’s from Inkadinkado called Wedding/Marriage for both the image and the sentiment. I stamped the image a second time on a scrap of Very Vanilla and cut out the birds and the heart, and then I popped them out with Pop Dots. Kind of hard to tell in the picture, but trust me, I did – even the little “curlies” at the tips of the wings! I stamped the sentiment on another scrap piece, used a Stampin’ Up! Word Window punch to punch through the LI paper, and adhered the sentiment underneath. I hand-doodled around the edges, added eyelets and ribbon, and poof – it was done! (Well, it really wasn’t all that “poof” – it actually took quite a while.)

The finished card measures 3 3/4 inches by 7 1/4 inches. As always, you can click on the image for an enlarged picture.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
