Anniversary Card

Happy Anniversary to my dearest mum and dad!!!! What a wonderful example of true friendship, love, compromise, compassion, forgiveness, laughter, partnership and trust. Mum and Dad – I love you!

I made this card for my mum and dad on their Anniversary (50+years together!!). I’ve used the Retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Mon Ami, as this was the only set I had that had large hearts, but you can easily replace them with current sets (Forever in My Heart would be perfect for this). I’ve made the card with Ballet Blue cardstock and a strip of pale blue organza ribbon from my sewing stash. It’s hard to see in the photo, but I’ve used Dimensionals with the uppermost heart to ‘pop’ it off the card.

For added ‘Bling’, I’ve restamped the worded heart stamp with VersaMark and stamped over the original image, then poured on Heat and Stick Powder. Melt this with a heat gun until it is ‘just’ melted and pour over a generous amount of Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Shake off the excess and then re-heat to set the Glitter. WOW – so pretty! I’ve stamped Happy Togerther from the “Happy Everything” stamp set. 
This card is very quick and easy to make.
