Here is an A2 anniversary card I made for my parents’ 46th wedding anniversary! It’s a simple card with only two die-cut hearts from the Sweethearts cartridge but I think the colorful paper does the rest. The pretty blue card base is from Michael’s Recollections Preppy Beach cardstock and the cheery patterned paper is from American Crafts’ Pebbles Seen & Noted.
I love the chevron paper! Is that an old trend now or did I make it in time! 🙂 I cut two of these chevron hearts at 2.5 inches – gluing one onto the card and popping the other one on top with dimensionals. I offset the left heart cut at 3 inches to have it go off the page a bit. I’m liking this style.
I used Fiskars All Year Greetings Stamps and StazOn Black Ink for the sentiment and a corner rounder on the bottom edges. I finished it off with baker’s twine from Martha Stewart.
The timing of this anniversary card with Jo’s Fun-day Friday Challenge worked out great! FFC #4 is “Anything Goes!!!!” To check out the challenge on Jo’s blog, click here.
Thanks for looking!
Hello! I have never done a sketch challenge before but thanks to Jo at Jo’s Scrap Shack, I took the plunge and I’m so happy I did. My niece’s birthday is coming up so I decided to use the sketch as my inspiration to make Amber’s card. She is turning 11 and growing up so fast!
If you want to check out the sketch to see how I did, go to Jo’s post here. Every Friday, she hosts a Funday Friday Challenge (FFC) and everyone is invited to play along! This sketch challenge ends June 7th, 6:00 pm CST. Winners will be announced on Monday, June 10th.
