So Happy Together | Inspiration

Hi everyone! Rachel here to share with you a card I have made for my wedding anniversary which falls on the 17th of this month. Perhaps this little project could give you some inspirations in preparing a few Valentine cards? *Wink*


It is a tradition of me making cards for the husband, basically one for our wedding anniversary, and one for his birthday. This annual practice of mine started out way back to the day when we started dating (for 6 years), tied the knot in 2003 and now to celebrate our 12 years of marriage. Come to think of it, I have known this guy for a good 2 decades. I’m blessed.

This is a 5”x6” single-fold card. The main focus of this card is the balloon-shaped cut-out which I trimmed from a 3”x4” pattern card from Photo Shoot Large Tags, and hand stitched around the edge with a pink sewing thread to give that extra texture.



With the intention of not turning this card into one that is too pinkish for a guy, I picked a mint color pattern paper, added some dimensional texture with texture paste and a heart shape stencil, sprinkled some white and pink mist, popped up most of the heart shape cut-outs with 3D foam dots, lastly pasted down the balloon cut-out and the So Happy Together circle tag from Photo Shoot Round Tags.


To give that finishing touch, pretty puffy stickers, page tab and sequins are the PREFECT elements to have.

I hope he will love this card, and happy 12 to us!

Thank you for stopping by. J

Love,
Rach

Planning for a wedding seems easy but it is quite difficult to find the right venues. The manager at this vow renewal place was so wonderful, personable, and responsive. We received the best possible service on our wedding day.
