CAS Anniversary card

Monica M with a look at a clean and simple anniversary card. I know there are some things like the ribbon and embossing folder that aren’t in the store, but you could easily substitute. Like I used an embossing folder, but one could just as easily use a stencil with embossing paste/ powder or even dies for a faux embossed looked and have wonderful results!

Happy Anniversary blue

I started with my sentiment placement before embossing and trimming the card panel to size. I added the ribbon and bow to cover the separation the embossed and flat portions of the card. I rounded the corners of my panel and adhered it to the card base. To finish up the card I rounded the card base corners and added my gems to mimic half of a heart.

I love making a simple card like this somedays, it’s a nice contrast to inking backgrounds and detail coloring images. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

A Glittery Embossed Anniversary Card

happy anniversary hero artsHi Everyone! Kristina here with some textured fun for this months challenge!

So I was looking for a multi-dimensional layered design with texture/embossing subtle in the background.
I started with a white embossing paste and mixed in glitter and plain white perfect pearls.
For a more glittery affect you can apply the glitter directly to the embossing paste after stenciling it on but I knew
I would be using a chunky glitter in the layers and didn’t want to over-do it

While that dried I stamped “Happy” in black pigment ink and embossed with Ultra High embossing powder
followed by stamping “anniversary” in black ink. I love how versatile this stamp set is that you can make a wide variety of sentences, and mass produce cards!

Here’s a close up
