Anniversary Card Number Two

Rain, rain and more rain! To bad we can’t send this to California and have a few nice sunny days here! Enough already – nope, it’s now going to rain off and on for the next several days. No bird watching for us when it’s raining. Some people go out in any weather but we are not a member of “some people” society. We’re strictly “go out in the nice weather” people…..on rainy days we mope around the house….well Joe does….I got another quilt sandwich (top+batting+backing) completed so I can now start quilting it……this is the only part of quilting I don’t like doing but it has to be done.

Today’s card is the second anniversary one I made for my friend. It’s probably my favourite.
 

This time I started out with some blue paper from my stash and chose the ink and embellishments to match.  The image was stamped a few times in light blue on white cardstock using a very old stamp from an Inkadinkado set but one of my favourites! The butterfly stamp came with it too. Then it was run through the Big Shot with the Swiss Dot embossing folder. I had to put it through twice, lining up the dots to get it completely embossed because this is a 5 ½” card and the stamped and embossed part is 5”. The ribbon is from my stash and the bow was tied and glued on top. The little flowers were then glued on top and a matching rhinestone was glued in the centre. I was so happy to find matching rhinestones in my stash because they really popped against the white flowers. The small X0 is a brad from HOTP. I bought a bag of mixed brads and there were quite a few of these in silver but not a pretty silver so I covered them with matching Stickles and set it aside to dry and then added it along the ribbon. The top part was then glued to the light blue cardstock and then onto the white card base.

There will be a third anniversary card still to be posted.

That’s all for a cold, wet, rainy Tuesday,

Cheers

Violet
