Greetings my stamping friends. I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I want to wish all the Moms a belated Happy Mother’s Day. I hope you were able to spend quality time with your families.
May 10 is actually my 7th wedding anniversary so today’s project is the card that I made for my husband.
I don’t know about you, but masculine cards are one of the most difficult for me to design. I am all about the ribbons, bling and layers when I make cards. This project is a quick and simple design with bare dimensions (believe it or not I didn’t use even one dimensional on this card!)
I used the Always in My Heart stamp set and coordinating Floral Heart Dies to make this card. To try to make it more manly, I used the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper which includes textile designs and wood/plank images. The banner for the Happy Anniversary sentiment is included in the coordinating dies set and it scores the banner where it will fold under and over to create the flying banner look. (The banner is attached with mini glue dots.) I love this die set!
Here is a complete list of the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of this card with quick link thumbnails so you can quickly and easily add them to your shopping cart if you need (want) them:Product List
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a trip out to Winstar in Oklahoma. We had dinner at Kirby’s Steakhouse and then tried our luck at the slots. The wait staff at Kirby’s was amazing as was the food. We were given a choice of a free dessert in recognition of our anniversary – we chose the Chocolate Spice Cake. Oh my, it was so good!
And I came back with more money in my purse than when we left; my husband wasn’t as lucky. 😉
