Card making

Anniversary Cards

June is a busy month for cards for me with birthdays, anniversaries and of course Father’s Day. I thought I’d better get started and when I saw the sketch on this challenge I immediately thought of anniversary cards. I try to use the wedding colours chosen by the couple for anniversary cards as much as possible, although it depends what materials I have in as to whether or not I can.

I wanted to keep it really simple so I used a swirls embossing folder to add texture to the coloured card. I then stamped the heart using my Versamark pad and luckily had an embossing powder which went well with the card. I did the same with the sentiment, mounting it with a very narrow border which took some careful cutting!

A card of mine wouldn’t be complete without a tiny bit of sparkle so I added a tiny gemstone to replace the ‘i’ in ‘anniversary’. I like the simplicity of this design so I think I might make a few using different colours.

I had forgotten how much fun it is to use stamps with embossing powders!

    1. Thank you! I always save something from the wedding (normally ribbon from the napkins or favours) to incorporate into the first wedding anniversary card too as a special reminder of their day. x

  2. I’m just catching up on commenting, as I was away on a choir tour in chilly Derbyshire last week.
    This is super, the use of monochrome turquoise is particularly effective!
    Thanks so much
