My husband and I recently celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary. We couldn’t really celebrate since it was batting practice for my son’s team (and my husband is coach) that evening and I was preparing for my parents’ imminent arrival. But no fear, we had a quiet celebration w/ homemade pizza and caught up to Game of Thrones.
Of course, I made him a card. And here it is.
I wanted to make something bright and colorful as well as whimsical.
I first stamped the 2 panda images from Pandamonium on white CS using black onyx Versafine ink. I heat embossed with clear EP then fussy cut the images. On scratch white CS, I scribbled several hues of red and then die cut hearts from this colored area. I set the cut pandas and hearts aside.
I really love the latest trend of script font sentiments. They can either stand alone or complement another sentiment. On white CS measured to 4.25″ width, I stamped a script image from the ubercool stamp set from Altenew, Superscript with black onyx Versafine ink. I then heat embossed with clear EP. To complement the image, I used a sentiment from Mama Elephant’s Smitten. Once all stamped and dried, I die cut the sentiments using one of the dies from Paper Smooches‘ Quotables.
I then prepared the card base. I trimmed craft paper to measure the front of the card. I then adhered my sentiment quote on the top of the card base with dimensional foam. I then added the pandas and then the hearts. Glossy accents were added to the hearts.
My husband loved it (of course 🙂
Hope you’ve been enjoying your weekend!
