This is the anniversary card I made for my husband. Our anniversary may only come once a year, but I love him all year long and wanted to let him know.
Size: Horizontal top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started by making the top layer of this panel. Using a ruler, pencil and my paper trimmer, I cut four windows in a panel of water color paper. I silver embossing the sentiment on this panel. I used the window panel to lightly trace the windows on the card base. Using the pencil lines as a guide, I stamped and white embossed various images in each window. I used Post-It tape to help mask areas that the stamps would have overlapped. Once the embossing was cooled, I began ink blending in each area. I also used Post-It tape to help contain the color to only one window area. I used two Distress Ink colors in each area. I flicked some water on the card base to add interest. Lastly, I popped the window panel up on fun foam and adhered it to the card base.
Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Bee Mine, Frosties, Happy Summer, Into the Woods, Lucky Stars, Penelope’s Blossoms, Ready Set Shake, Ready Set Snow, and So Thankful
Paper: water color paper
Ink: Versa Mark
Distress Inks in Cracked Pistachio, Mowed Lawn, Ripe Persimmon, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, and Twisted Citron
Hope you enjoyed the card
