My Husband's Anniversary Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is the week going? We have had lots of wind and rain and our poor fence has finally given up. Luckily the fence repair man is coming today so it should be all sorted out.

It is our wedding anniversary at the beginning of April about the time of the wedding I have been making all the stationery for. I still have a few last minute bits to make for the wedding so I wanted to get ahead with my husband's card.


I love the Heart of Hearts die set and I wanted to use it for this anniversary card. I started by making an 8" x 8" card blank and I embossed the top mat the the Heart Lattice embossing folder which was then inked with a red Distress Ink. 


I cut the Heart of Hearts die in red and removed all the hearts. Then I covered some black card with  double sided sticky sheet. I used the larger heart die from the set to cut the black hearts. I stuck the red hearts to the black hearts using the sticky sheet and covered the exposed sticky  with a fine clear glitter. 


This shows some of the detail  in the background. I use the Heart Lattice embossing folder so much it is just so useful. Inking over the embossing really brings out the detail. I cut the black swirls with some Tonic dies from my stash. I got them so long ago I can't remember what they are called. I used the waste hearts from the original die cutting to add some extra interest to the background. 


It is fine for me to share this card. My husband never visits my blog or my Facebook page. He is supportive in lots of other ways so I am not worried. 

Enjoy the rest of the week.

Happy Crafting.

Hugs Jackie
