Anniversary Card

Hi! Today I would like to share a special card that I made for my husband! On Monday, we celebrated 7 years of marriage, WOOHOO! I love him to pieces and couldn't have asked for a better person to share my life with, and with 7 years being "copper" I wanted to incorporate a little of that color in my card.

Here it is:

I did cut my light bulb 3 times, once out of white card stock and twice out of vellum. I embossed the white card stock with copper embossing powder and on one of the vellum pieces I cut the heart piece into the light bulb to be able to inlay that piece instead of it sitting on top. I used my Xyron sticker maker to glue both vellum light bulb pieces together. The Xyron works perfect because it doesn't show any adhesive. 

I placed glue behind the heart wire portion to place it on top of my embossed light bulb and added foam adhesive. I added some red glitter paper stripes to match my heart, followed by some enamel dots and my sentiment.

Hope you enjoyed my card and as always thanks for stopping by!

Oh Happy Day

Happy Thursday! I wanted to start off today's post with an announcement! Vanessa over at Butterfly Reflections Ink had a Design Team call for her new store, I decided to apply and got news a few days later that I made her team...OMG was I excited! This is my first design team and I am super duper honored and I hope I make her proud!

She was super kind in sending me a few items from her store and I wanted to share a few of them with you on today's card! I wanted to create something in celebration of this happy day, a card to help someone celebrate a special moment or time in there life.

Here it is:

I decided to use a fun layered embellishment from Maggie Holmes, love love this collection, with some of the same paper I used on my last card (same collection). I added my sentiment using one of my favorite stamp sets Avery Elle Oh Happy Day! Such a beautiful stamp set, if you don't own this one you definitely need to pick it up here and add it to your stamp collection, you will not regret it! I then stamped some sequence using the MFT You Were Meant to Sparkle stamp set on vellum (another great stamp set), placed some adhesive behind my embossed images to place my vellum on top of my design paper. I just love how the vellum softens the busy background.

Well there is my finish card, hope you enjoyed it and as always thanks for stopping by!
