Silly, he doesn't even read my blog, but it just sounded so good as a header! Yes, it's been 11 years today and our lives have been more than interesting! We have done so much together, even though we spend so much time apart! Perhaps one day we can take care of the latter!
I was really nervous yesterday when absolutely no idea had yet materialised in my mind with regards to what I wanted to make in terms of an anniversary card. However, hopping from one favourite blog to the next eventually resulted in some inspiration. I got my inspiration from Maile Belles, she has been trying out a new technique which she created by accident, you can see it HERE , and I really like it a lot, so I decided to use it on my card.
And here is the card I made using stamps from WPlus9 and PTI.
Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; designer paper (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Memento Tuexedo Black; Copic Markers; Antique Linen DI
Stamps: WPlus9; PTI (Happy Trails)
Other: Diamond Stickles
In a nutshell, you stamp your image and sentiment and then cut out a strip, but allowing the two sides to still be connected by some part of the image, in this case the one butterfly. And then you adhere a strip of designer paper or hand made background paper behind that cut out strip before adhering to your notecard. Or, you could simply adhere to your notecard if you don't wish for a pattern, and you could also adhere the top panel with dimensional strips too.
Phew! I feel relieved that it came together quite easily. I'm not entirely sure about the colours, I like the turquoise, and according to the colour wheel Orange is the complimentary colour so that's what I went with.
Now I want to go and prepare a dinner for us, something different and special. But, we are going out just the two of us for a romantic dinner on Saturday night! It's just wonderful to be in LOVE!
Have an awesome day!
