Happy Anniversary-Joy Fold Card




Every week over on www.scrapbook.com, we have a new card style post to make different types of cards.This was week of Jan 23rd, it is the joy fold card.I decided to make a Happy Anniversary card for my Hubby, who is quite possibly the best hubby ever.Sorry I'm just prejudiced that way.We will be celebrating 24 years together.
Ok now back to the card.The video on this card came from youtube:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TzFlHKnzb8&a mp;feature=... I used CTMH double sided cardstock & outdoor denim ink.The 1Corinthians stamp is from www.stampshappen.com. The heart punch is one I've had forever & can'remember where I got it. The scalloped circle & other circle are from CM.The designer ppr is from My Mind's Eye.,Happy anniversary stamp is from Sweet Pea Stamps.The green velour ribbon is from my ribbon stash,I couldn't tell you where I bought it because I have an incredible ribbon addiction.I inked around the edges of everything, I love how inking looks on my cards I feel it gives them a finished look.Thanks for coming to see  & I hope you enjoy my card.I will be posting about 2 new shelves I bought & repainted soon.

Thank you Card!

I bought this stamp at a yard sale this past summer.I used CTMH autumn terracotta ink around the edges of card & also around thank you stamp.Around the thank you stamp I matted a terracotta ppr & an olive green ppr from my scrap paper.I used my copic sketch markers on the thank you stamp,YR21 for the flowers,Y02 & RV21 on pot, Y21 for background & YG63 for leaves.The Flower is made from a punch &  DCWV paper, I punched 3 flowers  layered & staggered them different ways,Glued them together & then glued this pearl button on top.I found a large vase full of buttons at a thrift store for 50% off, I couldn't pass it up.You will be seeing quite a few buttons on my upcoming cards, some of them quite attractive & some old fashioned.They remind me of going to my Grandma's & playing with her tin box full of buttons when I was a lil kid.I hope you enjoy.Sorry it's been so long since I posted last.The 2nd half of 2010 was so emotionally sad.But 2011 is going to be incredibly blessed.
