I used Mellow Moss for the card itself, something I rarely do. I almost always use white cardstock. I stamped the leaves from a Scrappy Cat set called Botanical Flourishes that I got at Michael’s the other day. (After using a 40% off coupon, it was only $2.99!) I used Memories black ink for them, and colored them with a Stampin’ Up! Mellow Moss marker. Then I added a few highlights/shading (whatever!) with a Sage Shadow marker. I used the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder on each side. That has to be my ALL TIME favorite folder. It works for just about anything! I used my Scor-Pal to score the lines beside the dots. The Happy Anniversary is from a foam set that I got at JoAnn’s once upon a time. I have since taken all of the stamps off the foam and trimmed them carefully and now use them on acrylic blocks. They work great! I punched holes for the ribbon with a Stampin’ Up! Double Circle punch. After I took the picture, I noticed the bow is not centered, but oh well … it’s a handmade card – it doesn’t have to be perfect!
That’s it for today – another Clean and Simple card. We’re off to visit family and go to the Mower County Fair in southern
Thanks for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon
