Happy 6 Year Anniversary!

I try to do something special when it comes to anniversary cards for my kids, and this time was no different.  But it was actually the first time I had ever made a gate-fold card. What was I waiting for?  Monica's files are SO detailed, but this cut beautifully with the Silver Bullet.  I wasn't sure exactly how I was going to pull it all together, but I am happy with the final results.



I can hardly believe that Megan and Scott have been married for six years.  Where has the time gone?  For their anniversary card this year, I turned to the beautiful and intricate files from Monica's Creative Room.  She has a wide variety of projects and cards and you can tell she puts many hours into the creation of each one. I have never been disappointed by her work and am in awe of it!


You can see the detail even with it still on the cutting mat. The 
card stock is Paper Temptress Vintage Luster - one of my all time favorites
You can see the beautiful texture in all of the photos...


Here is the file all cut out and ready to become a card.
I cannot get over the beautiful detail.


I cut a sheet of colored vellum just inside the card dimensions 
(choose inner shadow in SCAL) and glued it around the edges  
 to line the card and highlight the cut areas.


A closeup of the front all finished and ready for the mail.  
The pearls gave it a bit of elegance and interest.


I tried to "spotlight" the Happy Anniversary greeting,
 but it still didn't show up very well.

I wrote my personal message on a separate piece of paper and tucked it in the envelope behind the card so it wouldn't interfere with the design!  

May they have many more happy anniversaries!πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
