Happy Anniversary!

papillon potpourri happy anniversary card

 This past week my daughter and her husband celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary, and this is the Papillon Potpourri anniversary card I made for them.  I saw a card in the Paper Crafters magazine that became the inspiration for this card.

I used the First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This neutral ‘encyclopedia’ pattern paper is super easy to customize.  I brayered Baja Breeze ink on it and stamped Happy Anniversary in Night Quite Navy to personlize the paper.

The butterflies were stamped on Comfort Cafe dsp and punched out with the Elegant Butterfly punch.  The punch only punches out the body so I stamped it again and trimmed around the body and antanae of the second set to adhere to the back of the  butterfly.

The butterfly alight on the tag was punched, folded and adhered to the corner.  I thread the button with linen thread and frayed it with the blade of my paper snips.  Glue dots are perfect for securely adhering the butterflies and button.

Just For You Anniversary Card

Thoughts & Prayers just for you angle

It was this cute couple’s (my daughter and her husband) anniversary last month, so I created this Just For You card just for them!  Kristin has a blog  where she keeps us up-to-date on there doings and also posts her decorating, sewing, craft and reupolstering  projects.  They like to buy at garage sales, fix things up and resale for a profit.  It’s quite a gig.

The card I created for them was inspired by the Shalom card at the top of page 23 in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  I kept this monochromatic card pretty simple but embossing the tree with Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder added some umph!  Inking up with the VersaMark Pad before inking with the Marina Mist Ink Pad keeps this tree damp long enough to add the embossing power.

And once again, I used my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine to make it all happen.  The layered labels were quickly die cut with the Labels Collection Framelits for fast layering.  The white background was embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder.

Thoughts & Prayers just for you card The Just for You sentiment was stamped on a strip of cardstock vellum and wrapped around and adhered to the striped base.

Enjoy!  Julie
