Happy Anniversary to Kurt and Julie. Married for 9 years on the 20th of this month. My friend Julie is very krafty, in the nice sense of that word of course. I wanted to make a special card for them. Here it is:
Here is my attempt at the distressed look posted on Andrea Walfords site here: http://andreawalford.com/?p=697 . I have to give credit where credit is due so you will notice mine is quite similar to Sophie’s card and tutorial.
Stampin Up Sets Used: Toile BG, Baroque Motifs
Micheal’s: Happy Anniversary Stamp
Colors Used: bashful blue, baja breeze, pacific point, creamy caramel, chocolate chip, old olive, riding hood red
ACCESSORIES: Riding hood red tafetta ribbon, jumbo eyelets, slot punch, ticket corner punch, sponges, scallop edge punch, 1/16 hole punch, acetate for masking, two way glue,
I am not sure this picture does this card justice as it is hard to see the old olive BGstamping. But I am quite happy with how it turned out and hope that our friends Julie and Kurt will like it too.
What do you think?
Sorry I have been so delinquent with my blog but I am adjusting to my new job and have been quite tired. I am now trained and will be working part time which was exactly what I was looking for in a job. Thanks for being patient and checking back. I have another card to get working on for a good friend and fellow stamper Kathie, who has recently left for Florida. I wanted to have it sent to her before she got there but no such luck.
Check back tomorrow to see that one.
