Happy 9th Anniversary to my daughter Beth and her husband Jason. It seems like yesterday when we were planning the wedding. Gosh, time does fly! Today is the 9th and it is their 9th Anniversary thus the Golden Anniversary! On Monday, I posted an elegant anniversary card that I made for them but it just didn't fit them. I went back to the proverbial "drawing board" and thought about Beth & Jason. They are young, vibrant and full of life. So, my card needed to reflect those qualities.
I liked the idea of a bright and cheerful card that says "cheers"! The Kaleidoscope dsp has a nice combination of classic polka dot paper and the trendy "triangles" in bright colors. They are actually the reverse of one another. One sheet of paper contains both patterns. Just the dsp that I needed.
Thumbing through the catalog, I spied the Happy Hour Stamp set & knew that it was exactly what I was looking for. After all, this is a happy occassion that merits a toast! I loved the fun accessories in this set – fruit slices, a strawberry and a straw. After stamping them and snipping them out, I popped them up with dimensionals.
The Scalloped Tag Punch provided just the fun that I needed for my "pull-out" tag. The Perfect Couple Stamp set from the Occassions Mini had the ideal sentiment for Beth & Jason. A bow made with Island Indigo Baker's twine completed the tag. All I needed to finish the card was a trio of Rhinestone Basic jewels.
Although my watermark on the next picture is crooked, I still wanted to use it because it is a better picture of my card.
The card is much more vibrant than it appears in the photo. Now, I just have to hope that the card arrived in time!
