Well shock, horror, gasp......its one of my cards!!!!
I thought I would show you the card that I made for Paul for our anniversary.
It ended up being a little bit of a rush, but I certainly wasn't going to let Paul go away without his card.
I used an Anna Marie Designs Stamp for the focal element of the card, I love the words on that stamp.
I mounted it onto Blue Foundation Card, I then matted and layered the background with some red and the same blue card and the topped it with a piece of coconut white card, embossed with the A4 Swirling Hearts Embossing folder by Creative Expressions.
I then created a ribbon strip using red card and a Martha Stewart Punch, I layered it with some narrow matching blue ribbon and glued it to the right side of the card, I then added mounting foam to the back of the topper and placed it on top, I felt it needed something else, but I find it harder to 'embellish' mens cards, so I went with the heart theme, I die cut some different sized hearts, glueing two together with a strand of ribbon glued in the middle, repeated it three times and them glued it onto the card and topped with another die cut heart, i popped some red gems on for a bit of sparkle!
Paul seemed very pleased with his card, I hope you like it too.
We had a lovely dinner out last night after all the drama!
I will call in later to catch up with you all.
love and hugs
