Anniversary Card - Saturday 12th January

Good Morning Blog Friends,

Today's card is one that I made when trying to think of Valentine's ideas for our next workshop. We are  probably going to to give our group the choice of sentiment, so for this one I've used anniversary. This is a vintage style card using a Kanban rose stamp and Happy Anniversary Dreamweaver Stencil. I also used paper from a pad by Tilda and some some dusky pink  textured card.

I stamped the image in red and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then distressed all around the edge with worn lipstick and turned up the corner after matting and layering  on the textured base card. 

For the stencil I scraped with Dreamweaver perlescent embossing paste and after removing the stencil, I sprinkled with red glitter and then left to dry before matting and layer on matching card to create the stopper.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I really do appreciate it!

  1. Such a lovely card Carole. I have a similar stamp which hasn't seen ink for years. Perhaps I should give it an outing? Have a good day - hope you don't get the snow; we have unfortunately. Christine x

  5. Hi Carole, a real beauty of a card, love the softness of the colours, the little turned up corner and the gorgeous rose design - much nicer than some Valentine offerings and so perfect for your workshop. Hugs, Anne x

  7. Good afternoon Carol,
    What a super card, love the stamped image.
    I am not a stamper so this really appeals to me, simple and no colouring in.
    Must have a go at that.

    I love this card. The shape is gorgeous as is the paper, stamp, and stenciling. Such beautiful ribbon. Can't wait to see what your class will do with this idea.
