It's my Anniversary!


Yep! It's been 11 years since we tied the knot! Click here if you want to see us on our special day. I wanted to make a special card for my groom, but it's a challenge to make a "romantic masculine" card. Too often I think that phrase is an oxymoron. But I think this attempt turned out rather well.

I started with this week's sketch from Mercy Kerin, some Rustic Chic papers, and the Forever Family stamp set. I used a marker to ink up only the "forever" in the phrase stamp. And I even finished off the inside...something I rarely do, but this is for someone special, right? The heart is also from the Forever Family set, and the sentiment was a GWP in the previous catalog. I think this card would work very well for Valentine's Day too if you're still needing for an idea for that special guy.

Don't forget about the class kit giveaway! You still have a few hours to post a comment to win!
