Happy Anniversary

Hi Bloggers.

Today is my Mom & Dad's Wedding Anniversary. I'm not sure how many years - it's around 56, I think but I'm probably wrong. The years just fly by! Anyway, I thought I'd share with you the card that I've sent to them.

I cut a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares. I cut Sue's Delicate Filigree Buckle Bar 4 times and arranged them around the frame.

I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Creative Expressions Swirling Hearts Embossing Folder.

I stamped the CE Heart Of Blossoms Stamp onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the largest die in Sue's Heart of Hearts Die Set.

I stamped the sentiment from John Lockwood's Flower Hearts Elements Stamp Set, again onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Shine Detail Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Pierced Flags.

Now, I must confess that I messed up one of the corners when I added the buckle bars to the frame so I had to either bin it or hide it. Obviously, I went for the hide it option. I stamped one of the flowers from the Shaded Orange Blossoms Stamp Set 8 times using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Shine Detail Powder. I cut them out using a die from Sue's Orange Blossom Complete Petals Die Set. I shaped them, paired them up (offsetting them) and added a 5mm White Pearl.

I cut a larger Double Pierced Square and then added to a proper card blank to send to my Mom & Dad.
