Happy Anniversary

Inspiration

As I told you on Sunday, I just celebrated my 31st anniversary. Here's the card I made for my DH. When I saw the background stamp in the Heartfelt Creations booth at the scrapbook convention, I knew it would be perfect for our anniversary - we had 1 Corinthians 13 read at our wedding and has always meant so much to us both.

The main images are from Heartfelt Creation's new release - the Heartfelt Wedding Collection. Today's HC blog features all the beautiful creations by the design team, and the winner of the full release is announced - be sure to check it out.

Instructions

Base Card

Start by stamping the word background in embossing ink at one end of a piece of black card stock measuring 5" x 10". Heat emboss with gold powder. Score the card at 5" and fold. Position the Scalloped Square Grand Nestabilities die so the fold of the card is just below the row of scallops and secure in place with tape. Cut and emboss - this gives the card scallops on three sides.

Image

Cut and emboss a Label 3 from vanilla cardstock. Stamp the rose/ring image in embossing ink on the Label 3, and heat emboss with gold powder.

Sentiment

Cut and emboss a Lacy Square from vanilla cardstock. Use a black marker to ink the single word "Together" on the sentiment stamp, and stamp on the Lacy Square.

Final Assembly

Use the metallic pen to paint the embossed edge in gold on each shape; Do both the outside and inside edges of the base card, the rose/ring label, and the sentiment Lacy Square. Mount the rose/ring image on the front of the card, and the sentiment label inside.

Thanks for stopping by!
