Happy Anniversary, Vicki and Gary!

A friend from my stamping group has her anniversary on the Fourth of July. This is the card I sent this year. Happy Anniversary again, Vicki! (It's 4.25 x 4.25 inches.)

The dragonfly is one that I believe I got from Andrea a couple years ago. It has dimension and sparkle. I added a little trail of black gems. The beautiful sentiment is from PSX. (No longer in business.) The frame is cut from Vintage Violet (from Stampin' Up!) using a Nestability, with an added layer of black. This Nestability was going to go back to Micheael's because I could NOT get the cardstock out after cutting it - no way, no how! But someone in my group forwarded a tip about using waxed paper over the cardstock. Voila! Now I can keep it! I tried parchment paper, too, and that also worked. Plus, if you use parchment paper, you get an extra piece you can use - rather like vellum.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

This is a beautiful card! Thanks for the waxed paper tip. I think I've heard this before, but had forgotten.

And thank you for the card! We appreciate it. I have some of those same dimensional stickers from either last year or the year before in D.M. :)

This really is beautiful, Lynette. I love the dimension, and all the different techniques. I've been looking for a decent "Happy Anniversary" stamp for ages and would love one like that - shame they are no longer in business. The Nestabilities mount is beautiful, and I'm glad you managed to find out how to make it work properly! Isn't Blogland and the Internet in general absolutely brilliant? There's always someone out there with some helpful advice when needed!
