Happy Anniversary

I needed to make an anniversary card for a special couple and I decided to do it all fancy.


Anniversary-RR-1


I started with a white card base of 6 x 6.  I layered a mat of red glitter paper on top.  Don't you just love how you can buy paper like that now?  I used some specialty dies from Spellbinders and cut 4 corners of the white card stock.  The next layer is a white mat set on the diagonal with another layer of glitter paper.


Anniversary-RR-3


A matching square flourish die sits on the red paper and finally a sentiment stamped on the diagonal to complete the card.  I added a double satin bow and a red velvet brad and then put tiny white pearls on some of the flourish pieces.


Anniversary-RR-4


Since I was mailing this card I wanted it to arrive in pristine condition.  I wrapped the entire card in tissue paper and then slipped it into a padded envelope.  I know the couple who celebrated their 42nd anniversary last week really enjoyed the extra touch of a handmade card.
