Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs.

My daughter and her husband have a wedding anniversary this month.  She and I both have a hard time remembering the date.  I know that sounds funny but it’s because her daughter, Avery, was born two days before their anniversary and we always have to stop and think which comes first.  This is the card I made for them.  IMG_1048-001IMG_1048-001

About the card
1. Bermuda Bay is my daughter’s favorite color, although that isn’t what she knows it as.  She has it in her wardrobe and incorporates it in her home decor beautifully.  I love Bermuda Bay with Black and White.

2. I used an easel card fold so it could be displayed.  I like this fold when the card itself says all it needs to say. For fabulous directions on how to make an easel card check out Patsy Waggoner’s site and her weekly tutorials at www.stampstodiefor.com.

3.  I stamped the Mr and Mrs twice and trimmed out the & after sprinkling with heat and stick powder and glitter.  A few of the Simply Pressed Clay flowers colored with Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral with a little pearl in the middle.  These have the added benefit of keeping the easel propped open.  I also used the new Square Framelits dies to create the square frame.
