Last weekend saw us celebrating our Wedding Anniversary. I knew he was expecting a hand-made card, so I couldn't disappoint him could I? This is what I made:
The digital stamp is called Roger Bear, and he came from Card Making Downloads . Everything else came from Crafters Companion - it really is a 'one stop shop'! Roger was coloured in with my Spectrum Noir Pens in shades of Cool Grey and the heart on his paw is shade 11, just to add a highlight. My base card is the green from the Centura Pearl Brights pack which I cut and folded in a 6" square card. The papers were a freebie (from the member's section) and are aptly entitled Valentine Project! I used my normal word processing package to produce the sentiment - the font is Tempus Sans and I really like this on the front of cards.
I wanted to make the inside of the card a bit special too, so I made it into a pop-out card. I used the embossing board Springtime Sweets and Cupcake Treats to go with my Ultimate Pro from (where else but) Crafters Companion . The pop-out heart is the middle sized one on the board. I also embossed and cut out the smallest one in the same green card as my base and then suspended this in the larger heart using a gold thread.
The sentiment is from the wonderfully generous Paulette at Create With TLC and says brilliantly what I'm not very good at telling my other half! The sentiment is matted onto the same backing paper as my image in order to tie the inside and outside of my card together.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
- Challenge #9 Happy Anniversary! at Kelley Kids Challenges
- World Cardmaking Day Impromptu Blog Hop at Create With TLC - sorry that it's only the sentiment Paulette!
