We have a theme for you this week and it is
You don't necessarily need to have the word Anniversary on the card but we'd like it to be suitable for the occasion.
The choice of theme this week is most indulgent on my part, as today is my 39th Wedding Anniversary.
I don't think I'll be getting a card from my husband until a little later in the day... it was raining yesterday and being a last minute merchant as far as card buying is concerned, he didn't want to go out and get wet...so he hasn't got one yet. He has made dinner reservations however and I know which I prefer.
Here's my card for him!
I don't remember the make of the stamp, but it's a polymer one I bought on eBay many a day ago. It's coloured with Promarkers and mounted on Nesties popped up on a few dimensionals. The sentiment is computer generated in Andalus and Passions Conflict fonts. (I often is the latter font for weddingly cards... bit of an ironic name!)
This card was made for some friends of ours whose anniversary is on Monday. Once we discovered that our respective anniversaries were so close we have been out for a meal with them to have a joint celebration for each of the last 20 or 30 years. (I don't remember exactly how many!)
For this card I heat embossed three pieces of card, one with the script stamp, one with the paisley and one with the manuscript, which I then proceeded to die-cut with the Die-Namics hexagon die. These were mounted on the larger hexagons cut in silver.
The flourish is from Marianne's I believe and the sentiment is is from a Woodware stamp.
There are a few more examples on my personal blog!
For this weeks theme I wanted to try something a little different. For my first card I printed the words "One Year On" in typewriter style font and then using the Stampin' Up heart punch I cut red pearl card and then added the hearts by using my sewing machine down the centre. It's finished by rounding off a corner. Simple, but lots of white space!!
For the second card, I printed a simple sentiment and then placed the card into a Stampin' UP embossing folder, just trimming it to fit the card blank in the same colour. It's finished off with some SU wisteria wonder twine. Sorry the photo isn't great, pearl card looks fab IRL but not so much in the photos.
Not many sleeps left until Christmas now, I hope everyone's preparations are well under way.
Do join us in this challenge, we're always amazed by the wealth of talent amongst LIMettes!
Have a great week.
