Anniversary Card

This is a card I made for my daughter Donna and her husband Edwin who will be celebrating their 19th wedding anniversary in a couple of days. Their wedding color was a dark green and her bouquet was pink and white cascading roses.

Front of Card

Inside of Card





This card on a card was designed using the Gypsy and cut using the Cricut v1(Baby Bug). The top card (3.74 X 2.965) came from the Cricut Don Juan Cartridge.

The dark green layer is Wausau Paper cardstock. The numbers 19 are from Cricut Elegant Cakes cartridge and they were welded together and to the sides of the oval in the card using Cricut George & Basic Shapes cartridge rectangles as anchors.

The light green layer is Coredinations Whitewash Cardstock. It was embossed using the Provocraft Cuttlebug and Divine Swirls embossing folder. It was lightly sanded using the Making Memories sanding block to reveal some of the green core. The corners were rounded using the We R Memory Keepers 1/4 corner punch. The oval leftover from the embossed layer was embossed using the Swiss Dots folder and sanded lightly, than it was glued to the darker layer to give contrast behind the numbers.

The under card( 5 1/2 X 4 1/4)  is The Paper Company Cardstock. The front edges were inked using Colorbox Fresh Green. The sentiment Technique Tuesday-Initially Yours The Little Words was stamped using Colorbox Fresh Green. The pink ribbon is from American Crafts Elements. The saying inside the card comes from Ultimate Card by Linda LaTourelle and the font used in Microsoft Works Word Processor is Lucida Handwriting.

The butterflies(1.43 X 0.76) were kiss cut using Cricut Picturesque cartridge and Cricut v1 from Coredinations cardstock used above. They were given some sparkle using Ranger Black Diamond and Icicle Stickles. They were glued to the card using popups( I don't know where they came from).

Adhesives used: Glide Pro, Zig 2-way, and GlueDots
