Anniversary Card

I love the design of this card. It's not my design, I found it on Tracy's blog at Craft Junkie Too. She does a wonderful job and I appreciate the inspiration she shares. My card is very similar to hers. But I did change a few things.




I changed the patterned, added some bling and changed the year for the couple I'm sending it to. This is the card that I'll send to everyone with an anniversary this year so the year changes for each couple. I made this card last year, but it was much larger because it needed to hold a specific gift certificate. I had added ribbon to the top of the card that was from the couples wedding. This time I left the ribbon off the top of card because I need to send it thru the mail so it needs to be as flat as possible.

It's a regular A2 size card and the heart (pg. 35) was cut from the Sweethearts cartridge at 4". The heart is cut in a silver shimmer paper but it didn't photograph well.
The numbers were cut from Storybook at 2" and the letters were cut at 1". They don't have a shadow so I cut the same size in black and just slightly overlapped them so their was a shadow on one side.


The inside is a silver glimmer paper from Target. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the edge. The sentiment is from CTMH and the "Happy Anniversary" is a wood stamp. Not sure where it's from.
Thanks again to Tracy at Craft Junkie Too for the inspiration.
