Happy Anniversary

Our son and daughter-in-law had their first anniversary on the 14th.  It's SO hard to believe that a year has passed already.  It only seems like it was a couple of months ago that we were downtown at the wedding.  

This is the card I made for them.  Don't be too impressed, I found one like this on Pinterest.  You can view it here.  

I used the Elegant Lines embossing folder for the background.  I punched out 3 hearts.  One of Basic Black, one of Whisper White and another Whisper White that was embossed with the Dotted Swiss folder.  It's hard to see in the photo but the black piece is cut in the center and then folded back to make it look like lapels.  

The black pearls were actually colored in using a black Sharpie marker.  The hearts were set in place using Dimensionals.

It's a very quick and easy card to make.  The lapel took the most time to do but it wasn't bad.  Just mark on each side where you want the fold to be and then just score it to the center.  The original card was a wedding card but these images work great for anniversaries too!  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
