Slimline Anniversary Card

I needed more space for the following card, so I went with a slimline card. I have made a card with these dimensions before, but the word slimline was never part of the description, just to fit into a business size envelope.

I used the newest club set from The Stamps of Life, called tortie2stamp. Tortoise eat dandelions, so I stamped several to fill in the background. This was a joy to create. I am always looking for a new idea each year and this was a winner.

Diamond Anniversary

My husband’s aunt and uncle celebrated their 60th anniversary this week. My task was to make an anniversary card marking this milestone and celebrating their love. I found a card on Split Coast Stampers that gave me the needed inspiration:

Following is my card. For the front, I used the bird builder punch, retired from Stampin Up, Stitched Season Framelits retired Stampin Up, silver foil and glitter paper from Hobby Lobby, a Spellbinder’s circle die, and a set from Maymay Made It called From All of Us. The Darice Floral Vines embossing folder was used for texture. The birds eyes are clear rhinestone embellishments that I used a black alcohol marker to give them color.

Diamond Anniversary Front

Following is the inside. I used How Many? from Maymay Made It, and Best Wishes from Hero Arts. The paper used for the card is Heavy Base and Layering Weight Ivory cardstock from Gina K Designs.

Diamond Anniversary Inside

You can’t tell it in the photo, but I added glitter to the number and exclamation point using a Glitter Gel Pen. Now we need to sign and mail the card.
