If you’re seeing this blog post then it means I managed to finish before Hurricane Teddy hit. I made this “Happy Anniversary” card ahead of time so you’d have a blog post to read whatever happened here. So now you can enjoy this, and today’s stamp sale, while I work on tomorrow’s project and blog post. Just in case…
As I began my project, once again I was drawn to the Gilded Autumn 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack. This time I chose the less ‘autumnal’ colour scheme of copper foil leaves on a Mint Macaron background.
First I cut a 2-1/4″ x 6″ piece and using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I fixed it to the flap of a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. Then with Paper Snips I trimmed the DSP using the edge of the flap as a guide.
Next I cut a 7/8″ x 5-1/4″ strip of the DSP and attached it to the right-hand edge of a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla Card. Along the left edge of the DSP I then added a 1/8″ x 5-1/4′ strip of Shaded Spruce Card. I set this piece aside for later.
Using my Paper Trimmer I both cut and scored a piece of Mint Macaron Card for my card base. After folding it along the scored line and sharpening the crease with my Bone Folder, I fixed the Very Vanilla layer on the inside.
With the envelope and card liner done I was just left with the front of the card to complete.
I still needed one last piece of the DSP and cut that to 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. After cutting a 3-7/8″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Shaded Spruce Card I glued the DSP to it by aligning the right-hand edges.
Next I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron 1/2″ Basketweave Ribbon around the layers and secured it on the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive. Then I added the assembled layers to the card front with Stampin Dimensionals.
For my “Happy Anniversary” sentiment I turned to the Many Mates Stamp Set and Shaded Spruce ink. After stamping the sentiment I cut it out using a die from the Ornate Frames set. Then with a few more Stampin’ Dimensionals I added the sentiment to the card front and I was done.
A pretty anniversary card and a finished blog post. It’s definitely a happy day here!
