Hello there! Back again today with another Anniversary card, using the set Timeless Love. I started with a Very Vanilla base and added a layer of Timeless Elegance DSP, now retired. I added a banner on top of that made with the Banner Triple Punch.

I stamped the floral image with Basic Black Archival ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and used the Ovals Collection Framelits to cut it out with the help of the Big Shot. I then used my paper timmer to cut a chuck out of the middle so the oval didn't take up as much space. I stamped the sentiment onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and positioned it where I wanted it.

I then added another strip of DSP, cutting along the lace edge, and added a piece of Crocheted Trim, retired, on top. I attached the sentiment piece with Dimensionals, which covered up the splice. Finally I added a retired button thread with a Basic Black Baker's Twine bow, and attached with Glue Dots.

I was pleased with how this card turned out and can't wait to send it to a happy couple. Thanks so much for stopping by:)

Hello there! Sorry for the little break~been on vacation and playing catch-up:) I got June's Paper Pumpkin last week and wanted to share it with you. It's called Banner Surprise, and to be honest, I thought it was a little weird when I first saw it. I decided to make one according to the kit instructions, and when it was finished I changed my mind and decided I liked it:)

It's a card with a cute little banner attached, so the recipient can hang it up on their desk, or mirror or in their office and be reminded to celebrate a little more:) I needed some Anniversary cards so I made mine all the same. But there's sentiments for Birthday, Graduation & Shower as well.

The kit came with cute little Mint Macaron bags for envelopes, and even the backs are fun. The washi tape was included, along with both Mint Macaron & Top Top Taupe spots.


Here is an alternate card found on the SU! site using the new Gold Binder Clips and Star Framelits.
