Happy 40th Anniversary

I have made this card for my Aunt & Uncle who celebrate their 40th Wedding Anniversary today. I have CASEd one of my own cards here but changed the colour. So first up I have printed the greeting from my PC using 'Fabulous 50s' font {I have 'borrowed' this from Diva LIM Mandi - thank you!}. I have then gone over the 40 with a clear Spica pen. I have added piercing either side of the greeting using my Tim Holtz ruler. For the hearts I have cut out two squares from Bazzill Kraft CS using a Nestabilities die and then stamped the hearts (Elzybells) on top using Memento Lady Bug ink. To finish I have attached Doodlebug buttons to the panels with white floss and added to the card with 3d foam.

I am entering this card into the current Less Is More challenge of Things That Move. Now I know I have used a bit of artistic licence here but as hearts beat they move. Hopefully Mandi & Chrissie agree!





STAMPS: Elzybells Art Stamps. INK: Memento Lady Bug, Copic Spica At You Glitter Pen. CS: Craftwork Cards, Bazzill Basics. TOOLS: Nestabilities, Tim Holtz Ruler, piercer tool, PC. EMBELLISHMENTS: Doodlebug Buttons, We R Memory Keepers Floss.

Thanks for visiting today, for the first time in ages I have had the whole weekend off work and it has been lovely, hope yours has too!
