My Anchor

Last Friday my hubby and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. It was the first time in three years I haven't had to work on our big day. It was wonderful to be able to celebrate and spend some quality time together...it seems to be in short supply these days!  Here is the card I made for him:

Masculine card featuring the Guy Greetings and Work of Art stamp sets.
Since we had an October wedding, I chose a Fall-inspired colour palette. I used one of the brush-stroke images from the Work of Art set and stamped it in Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler inks. Then I stamped the anchor image from the Guy Greetings set over top using Early Espresso ink and die-cut it using the Lots of Labels Framelits.

The background panel is a piece of Kraft card stock that I embossed using the Woodgrain TIEF and then layered on a slightly larger piece of gold foil sheets. I added some subtle sparkle with single strands of gold metallic thread. The sentiment is also from the Guy Greetings set and is stamped in Early Espresso ink. I die-cut it using the Banners Framelits. The only additional embellishment is a bow made from gold Baker's twine. The card is built on an Early Espresso card base.

On the inside I stamped the heart from the Work of Art stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink and added a sentiment from the (retired) Good Greeting set in Early Espresso ink.

My hubby loved the simplicity of this project...try it for the man in your life!

Here are the products I used to make this card:
