The card that generated the snippet!

A couple of posts back I made a card using a rose image I found in the snippets box. I now know where that rose came from, it was the extra ‘just in case’ image from the card I made for my daughter and son-in-law’s 4th wedding anniversary.

Materials used:SAM_1824(watermarked)
Aurora Wings – Rose Corner #2
stamping card
heart shaped die set
Memento London Fog ink pad
silver peel offs
Copic pens

I printed out my image and coloured it with Copics. I then cut it out with a heart die then inked around the edge with the London Fog and a blending tool. I made the backing paper on the computer and used the traditional and modern anniversary gifts repeated over the whole sheet. I cut a large heart aperture from the front of the backing paper then attached it to the front of the card blank. I then cut a slightly smaller heart from white card and stuck that to the card front, finally I added my rose topper using foam pads. I used silver peel offs to add the greeting and the anniversary number. At least I think that is what I did, I cannot remember now – the anniversary was a month ago!!

I am going to have to either blog the cards quicker or make a note of everything I do when I make them, my memory is getting really bad! Thank you for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
