We celebrated our Pearl Wedding Anniversary at the end of August so I just had to make a card!

Materials used:SAM_2215(watermarked)
Jellypark Digital Crafts – Romantic couple at table
stamping card
square card
Centura Pearl card
red roses vellum
x-cut doily die
circle die
Copic pens
silver peel off greeting and numbers
flat backed pearl gems

I turned the card blank into an easel card, printed out the image and coloured it in with the copics. I die cut the image with a circle die and ran a black pen around the edge. I cut a mat from the vellum with the doily card attached my image and then attached it to a piece of the centura pearl card cut to fit the card front. I cut a smaller doily and a circle from centura pearl to make the card stopper. I layered another piece of centura pearl inside the card blank and than fixed my made up stopper to it. Finally I added the words, number and two pearls to finish it off.

I think the couple in the image look more like us when we got married rather than how we look now. But a girl can dream that the passage of time only affects other people!

Thanks for stopping for a while. 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.
