Anniversary Card for my Hubby

So here is a card I made for our 22nd Wedding Anniversary next month. Slight problem that hubby saw it while I was trying to take pics, but he will pretend to be surprised on 25th July!

I sprayed the main card blank with the Oak House Studio 'Spode' blue spray inks, which gave a lovely soft colour. I stamped three hearts using the Walesby Heart, also from Oak House Studio using a Versamark ink pad then heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Marine Sea Lustre, which I also used for the Anniversary sentiment. I added ribbon top and bottom to the main strip. I had a piece of blue card which I rounded the corners on, divided into 3 parts and added white dots to with a Uniball Signo white pen, which I also did to the card behind the sentiment. I layered it all up, was happy that it wasn't too girly (it's blue!!!) then smudged a mark on the edge of the main heart bit so I die cut more of the same coloured card and added the swirls to cover it up, but I liked it with that too! Tiny scrap of ribbon on the semtiment, just in a knot rather than a feminine bow, and voila!

I'm going enter this into the June Oak House Studio Challenge


  1. What a brilliant make, Suz, thanks for entering this months challenge.

  2. A great card and I love those hearts - I'm sure your hubbie will be suitably surprised on the day!!
