Anniversary Card for My Grandson

This is a card I made for my grandson and his wife who celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary last Friday.


The cardstocks used are from my stash ( light blue 4 1/2 X 6 inches, dark blue 3 3/4 X 5 1/4 inches, white 3 1/2 X 5 inches). The corners were cut with the WRMK Scallop Corner Chromper. The layers of the card were adhered with Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac.

The stamp (Inkadinkado), Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink

Foulard embossing folder (Anna Griffin) set using the very pretty new teal Sizzix Big Shot machine.

Flowers (Fiskars punch) were cut from silver cardstock in my stash. Each flower was shaped with the Imaginisce Stylus. Two were adhered together using Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive then adhered to the card.  Magenta Pearls (Viva Pearl Pen) were added to the centers of each flower.

Scroll (3 1/2 inches Teresa Collins December 25th cartridge, Bazzill Cardstock) inked edge with Tombow Watercolor Marker. The sentiment was handwritten with a Zig Millenium Blue Pen.

Note: I have a stash of scrolls that were cut with the Cricut Expression using the Autofill feature.

Floral Anniversary Card

What to do with all the small pieces of scrap paper in my stash? Well, I bought a Fiskars flower punch and made a large quantity of flowers while watching TV.
Bag of cut flowers
Some of the flowers were used to make an anniversary card for my daughter Donna and her husband Edwin’s 22nd wedding anniversary.
The 4 X 6 card is made from green cardstock I had in my stash. I embossed vellum (Emagination Crafts) with the Anna Griffin Rosa embossing folder using the Sizzix Big Shot. The flower petals were given a lifted character by rubbing the center of the each flower with the rounded ball of an embossing stylus. Then I adhered two flowers together using Scotch Quick Dry adhesive for each blossom.

The blossoms were adhered to the front of the card with quick dry adhesive. Rhinestones (Studio 18) are adhered to the center of each blossom with quick dry adhesive.

Close up of the sentiment
The sentiment was printed on vellum using Georgia font then adhered to some floral scrap paper in my stash. It’s shape was cut with scissors. Then it was adhered to the front of the card with Glue Arts Perma Tac.
Inside of the card
Printed paper from my stash and vellum were cut and embossed using the Sizzix Big Shot and Spellbinders Label twenty-three. The quote on the floral cut is from a DCWV book of quotes. The message on the vellum was printed using the Georgia font.
The green and white envelope (DCWV paper) was made using Fiskars paper trimmer and the Martha Stewart Scoreboard. It is adhered with Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac. 
NOTE: The vellum is sticky backed.
