Anniversary Wishes

I made this card for my Brother and his wife and also for something else which I won't reveal just yet ;o)

I took inspiration for my card from Friday Sketchers as they had a fab sketch on there to follow.

To make this card I used :

K and Company patterned paper.

Red Core'dinations cardstock for matting.

A red piece of gorgeous paper from my BasicGrey Wassail pad and embossed this with my hearts folder on my Cuttlebug.

The image is a Penny Black stamp called Sweet Pea Wreath which I coloured with distress inks and I added some glossing accents to the flowers. You might just see this in the second photo I have taken. I cut all around the image and cut out the centre because I wanted the hearts embossing to show through. This took quite a bit of time and patience (which isn't my strong point !) with my craft knife !

This ribbon is a brown Anita's ribbon.

The pearls are from my stash.

The sentiment I made on my PC and distressed it with Antique Linen and Old Paper distress inks.

The colours in this card and gorgeous and warm and I was really pleased when I finished it.


  1. A beautiful card Jo, I love the embossed hearts, so fitting for the theme! xx
