Happy Anniversary Card!

My anniversary is fast approaching! I used some of my free time, that was also hubby-free, to make a handmade surprise card for my Husband. I already knew what stamp set I wanted to use, "Card Chatter Love", from close to my heart. But I had to search around for some inspiration for color and design. I found this for inspiration from Moxie Fab World blog. It is a Tuesday Trigger called "Man-tastic".

Man-tastic
I found a great card sketch to use on the Mojo Monday Card Sketch Challenge! This one is called Mojo 244!

So here is what I created combining all of the above criteria and inspiration! Tada!


I used alternating hearts along a stitch looking stamp to mimic the rain drops on the string in the "Man-tastic" inspiration photo. I used the colors from the photo as well: Cranberry Red, Teal, Indian Corn Blue, Grey Flannel, and Chocolate.


I used the new fork trick that I learned from Pinterest to tie this fancy bow out of color ready ribbon. Who knew I needed tools from the Kitchen in my craft area!?



I love the "Card Chatter Love" stamp set for anniversary cards, weddings, and Valentine's day. On this one I used the "You are my..." on the cover of the card and placed "Happily Ever After" on the inside.

    1. I did stamp each heart! Each time I wanted to switch colors I just stamped it on a scrap piece of paper until I couldn't see it anymore. :)
