Something Old Something New

I think it’s important to recognize anniversary’s, whether it be yours, a family members or even a friends.  In today’s world it just seems too easy to walk away from a relationship so help me in rewarding some longevity!

My two anniversary cards are a little something old and a little something new.  Both paper packets are from the Annual Inspirations catalog – Georgie and Kaleidoscope.  Both two of my favorites, but with a totally different feel.  I used an old stamp of the month, Candlelight Garden and the current stamp of the month Celebrate with Cake.

I colored the Mason jar and flowers with Shin Han markers. You might be able to tell that the flowers are fussy cut and popped up on Thin 3D foam tape.  I stamped them once on the jar and then stamped them again to cut out.  I really like how this card turned out.

The “cake” card was paper pieced from the Kaleidoscope papers.  To color the roses I used a blender pen and the ink from the inside of an ink pad lid.  Simple but fun technique.  I embellished with lots of bitty sparkles.  I stamped the Celebrate over and over in Whisper ink for a soft simple background.

I hope you’ll consider making someone an anniversary card to celebrate their love.  Thank you for stopping by.  Leave me a comment with how many anniversaries you’ll be celebrating this year!  I’ll be celebrating number 6!

  1. These are both lovely cards. I love the color combo on the 1st card and the water in the case is fab.
    I also agree that anniversaries should be remembered. My DH and I celebrated our 34th last Sunday and none of family and only 1 of my friends even mentioned it. Thirty-four years is a long time!
