With Love on our Anniversary
Hi everyone. Here's my anniversary card for my hubby that I made a while ago. I wanted to experiment with more mixed media, and went opposite to my usual white CAS cards. :) I'm really happy how this turned out.
A script background is stamped randomly with silver ink, then stenciled over top with a quatrafoil design in black pearl paint mixed with heavy matte gel. Again, the gel is randomly spread across the card front. XOXO border was die-cut from red card stock four times, glued together to create a thick die-cut, then coated with glossy accents for some shine. The sentiment banner is stamped in silver and popped up for added dimension. I'm heading over to join the fun at Mixed Media Card Challenge where the challenge this month is red. I'm squeaking in just under the wire. :)
Today is our 37th wedding anniversary so I gave the card to hubby this morning. He really like it. :)
It's a beautiful day here on the West Coast of B.C., so we are heading out to Crescent Beach for a walk along the water and then picking up groceries on the way home. We used to always go out for dinner on our anniversary, but started having them at home a couple of years ago because of health issues. We found it so much more relaxing being at home to celebrate, that we're doing it again this year. Hubby will be making his famous BBQ Cedar Plank Salmon --- yummy! I'm one lucky girl! :)
Thanks for coming by for a visit.
