Anniversary Cards

I have two wedding anniversaries coming up next week and so have been busy making cards to mark the occasions. One is for our friends Angela and Stuart and the other is my sister Val and brother-in-law Jim. I am only posting one photo today as I know Val looks at my blog and I don't want to spoil the surprise!!

For Angela & Stuart's card I stamped the image onto acetate, put it through my Xyron machine and added gold leaf to the back of the image. I coloured the flowers using Dufex brush markers. This was mounted on to copper mirri and two shades of orange card. The backing paper is from Elusive Images and I used my X-Cut border system with the scallop and heart dies to create a border which I backed with copper mirri. I ran a piece of ribbon through my printer to add "Happy Anniversary". Flowers were out of my stash and coloured to match the orange/copper theme; the sentiment is a Stampin Up stamp and cut out using SU punches. I added three "blobs" of copper Stickles to finish off the card.

Thanks for looking.


  1. Very pretty Karen, they will love it.


  2. Lovely card - I presume you coloured the flowers from the front?? Look forward to seeing the other one

  3. Yes Val, I did colour the image from the front - put it through the Xyron and then applied gold leaf to the back.
