Anniversary Card for Patti & Ken

This card was made for friends Ken & Patti, they are celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversary. What a wonderful accomplishment, congratulations.

My initial intention was to use a Magnolia stamp from the wedding collection, but alias it did not arrive in time, so instead I used my Cricut machine and the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge to create the bride and groom figures. That took a considerable amount of close up work to get the clothes glued on. I cut the sentiment with the Beyond Birthday cart. My DP’s are from CTMH the “Veranda” collection. The flowers are Prima, topped with a brad from CTMH. The bird stamps are CTMH as well. The girl’s head decoration is done with Flower Soft. I used a Spellbinders die “Flourish” to emboss one of the mats and added Pearl Glimmer Mist for sparkle. A pre-cut piece of chipboard was used to mount the man and women on, I covered it with some of my DP using gel medium to affix it and as a top coat too. I sprayed the man and women with Super Seal to be sure the Flower Soft stayed put and for protection.

Unfortunately, the man and women fade into the background in the photo, but I didn’t make the card for the blog, in person it is very beautiful and I’m quite pleased with the result and hope they enjoy it too.
