Firstly I would like to extend a warm welcome to my newest follower, Henry Evans - unfortunately he does not appear to have a blog, so I cannot visit him in return.
I made this card for my daughter and her husband on their recent anniversary, it was one I had printed off a while ago, a freebie from Beccy's Place, but coloured and mounted when I needed it.
To colour it I simply sponged distress inks onto it, graduating the colours from light to dark as appropriate .
After the ink was dry, I sprayed it with a silver shimmer mist
I love the quote at the bottom, and have used it in other forms for Anniversary cards.
I stamped and embossed the greeting and cut it using a ticket die, and ran a gold pen around the edge. That was then mounted over a gold ribbon across the base of the design paper.
I wee off cut of the paper was added to the inside of the card to finish.
I was happy with the end result, and the couple loved the card.
