Make an Anniversary or Wedding Card

Very Vanilla Vintage Anniversary Embossed Card

For today, let's look at an idea for a wedding anniversary card (or this could be a wedding card) and take a break from Halloween and Christmas.  I got this idea from a card I saw on our Stampin' Up! site for demonstrators and changed a few things a little bit.  This is a square card made with Very Vanilla card stock on all the layers. I mailed the card so I'm going to have to guess how I really made it!

The layer on top of the card base is embossed with the beautiful Fancy Fan Folder.  I cut a wide strip which I punched along the bottom with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and stamped "Happy Anniversary" from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I cut another narrower strip and embossed it with the Lacy Brocade Folder and adhered that near the top of the wide strip. Then you need a punched or die cut or hand-cut out heart and a few paper flowers. Add some ribbon, or I used some Victoria Crochet Trim kind of gathered up and adhered with Sticky Strip.  And for some bling, I added lots of Pearl Basic Jewels, including one or two Large Pearl Basic Jewels.

Just to add a little more to this card and differentiate all the Very Vanilla layers, I sponged a little Crumb Cake ink here and there, along edges and lightly over the embossed pieces.  Just adds a little something, especially if you want a little vintage look, which is often good for wedding or anniversary.
