As we were going to bed on Monday evening, DH whispered those words every wife loves to hear ......
"It's my folks' wedding anniversary this week and I need to post the card tomorrow"
He then promptly went to sleep, whilst I lay wide awake!!! I knew I didn't have an anniversary card in my box, so was still turning over ideas in my head until I finally (much, much later!) fell asleep.
So I got up early the next morning and in the shower, I remembered a heart die and thought it would fit on one of my previously half-prepped card bases.
This is what I came up with in the end and even managed to take a photo before DH left for work with it.
It's a double OotD really - the card base, comprising the scalloped blank, the patterned paper mat and the turquoise die-cut mat was made ages ago at a crop and stashed in the drawer. I think the paper is from a 6" paper pad and the mat was a Marianne die. The heart die (Robert Adams) was bought at the Make it show last year on a vague "it'll come in useful" whim, but has not been christened until now! I have to say, it cuts beautifully.
So, early on Tuesday morning, I embossed some cardstock with a dotty embossing folder and punched a circle to frame the heart, stuck it to the die-cut mat. Then I die-cut the heart - after a frantic search for a suitably-coloured cardstock - and attached to the circle. The sentiment banner is done with a Dienamics die and a peel-off, no way was I going to risk messing up stamping a sentiment! The banner was attached to the heart and then I stuck down the flowers using Cosmic Shimmer glue, leaving about five minutes for it to set before DH was due to leave! I only had time to take one photo, luckily it's a reasonable one :-)
I do hope they like it ...... LOL.
