I needed an anniversary card for a special couple and when I saw this week’s sketch at From the Heart Stamps I knew it would be the blueprint for my card.
I turned the sketch sideways because it fit the idea I had for my card. I started with pure white cardstock and made it 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, A2 size. Red is their favorite color so I used it as the first layer and mat. Ok, who doesn’t like glitter and this silver paper is very sparkly. I had some Memory Box dies that I was itching to use so they became the focal point of the sentiment. A simple happy anniversary statement stamped in black ink is the focus of the card.
I came across these little velvet brads and knew they were the finishing touch to a beautiful card. I don’t think you can tell but I used a superfine white diamond glitter around the white oval mat.
