Today my lovely hubby Andrew and I are celebrating our 28th Wedding Anniversary and I can't believe how the years have flown. I think they started to fly by after our 2 daughters were born. They're now 21 and 19 and sometimes it seems like only yesterday that they were toddlers.
I've made a card for the occasion which fits Hels Sheridan's current Sunday Stampers theme, Metal Guru.
As you can see, it's got quite a lot of metal. I actually used metal foil which I wrapped round thin squares of card and then embossed in the Cuttlebug using the Kimmy-luvs heart folder and the Sissix Tim Holtz Alterations Damask Texture Fades folder.
I rubbed Palette Belle Rose ink over the heart embossed squares to emphasize the pattern. I then stamped some hearts by Hampton Art in VersaFine Crimson Red ink on white card and embossed them with red pearl powder. I cut them out and stuck them on the damask squares.
I then cut a square of white card and stamped on a border design from the Impression Obsession Ornate Borders WP130 clear set in the red ink. I stuck this to a dark red card blank and then glued on the squares.
This evening my hubby and I are going out for a meal and then we're off to the movies to see a film. I'm really looking forward to this as we don't seem to get out as much these days. I think you get out of the habit once you have children but hopefully this will change in the autumn when we have 2 girls at uni.
