Anniversary Wishes.......

My brother Nick and his wife Lisa celebrated their wedding anniversary yesterday, and this is the card that I sent them. I used a C5 card cut down to a  5" wide tent-fold. Papers were First Edition 'Daydream' 8x8 with the addition of brown glittercard, Bazzill, brown satin ribbon and a Prima bloom. I edged one of the papers with a MS heart punch, wrapped it with satin ribbon, then adhered it to the second piece of paper. This was then adhered flat to the front of the card. Two hearts were cut from purple spotted paper and shadowed with brown Bazzill. The silhouettes were cut from brown glittercard, then adhered to the hearts with foam pads. The completed hearts were then adhered at a slight angle to the card, overlapping the top slightly (when making a card like this always have the envelope to hand so that you can ensude that it will fit) A trio of punched hearts were adhered to the top of the large hearts. The sentiment and names were cut from glittercard and adhered flat. A couple of teeny punched hearts, a bow and lilac Prima bloom completes the card.

Such a cute idea for a Anniversary card. I never put cuts above the card like this. Too cute. I also checked out the snow globe Feliz Navidad card on the right margin. Soo pretty. I'm starting to get my ideas for Christmas cards together. I just purchased the Snowflake Solutions Cart and I have the Christmas Noel and Christmas Cards Carts. I think I have a snowglobe on one of my other carts. So, I will be doing a treasure hunt today to find it! Have a great time at the SWARM. As always, thanks for the inspirations!

Hi Kathleen
There are snowglobes on Doodlecharms (the one I used) and also on Joys Of The Season). If you want to find a particular cut go to mycutsearch.com, enter what you want to find in the search bar and it will tell you which cart the cut is on.
