White Anniversary


I did intend being back before this, but life, and my health, conspired against me.
I am finally back home, and starting to look forward to crafting again - thankfully I had worked ahead and had all but one of my September cards made (but not sent), so I am only a wee bit behind... 
I was able to hand deliver this one, so the recipients received it on time 😊

It really is a snippets card, as the textured front was sitting on my desk with the heart die cut out, so I simply put the last snippet of the card with the gold chocolate wrapper glued to it behind the aperture.

The sentiment is a very old (read discontinued) stamp - it was stamped in purple 
(C.P. Queen for a Day ink) on an hand cut banner,
and mounted  over a snippet of the gold paper that I used to layer the textured panel over.
The base of the card is purple.

I used more snippets of the gold and the textured panel on the inside of the card, and  cut a fishtail to the ends of them to match the sentiment panel

So very elegant Maxine, working ahead does have it's benefits, I've always called it my 'just in case' plan.

A lovely anniversary card and the embossing and the gold heart really make it special.

Thanks for submitting your homework to the Snippets Playground. I'm making a big batch of hot chocolate up in the Treehouse! xxx

I hope you start feeling more like yourself soon Maxine. It has taken it out of you and will be a slow journey back to full health so be gentle with yourself please.
Love the card, how wonderful that the bits and pieces you had all went together so well. I love the gold on the white and the touch of colour in the sentiment.
Take care, God Bless
