Another Anniversary

Just before our anniversary, it was our lovely friends, Steve and Natalie's wedding anniversary.  This was the card that I had originally planned on making for Phil, but as I didn't know how many years S & N had been married (and anyone who might know wasn't available) I switched the designs around and made the 20 hearts for Phil!

This card was based on an idea I found on Pinterest, although I jiggled it around quite a lot.  I bought the glassine envelopes, and I love them!  I love that you can still see the patterned paper through them and then pop something in so that it kind of floats (or is that just me?!)

I used my old typewriter for the words on this card, and some Sugared paper from Basic Grey along with a bit of pink ribbon from my stash.  I think that I will make other cards similar to this one, just so that I can use a few more of those lovely glassine envelopes!

Phil and I had a lovely weekend in London even though I felt poorly for most of the time (and still do).  More on that in future posts though as I have today made a start on the mini journal that I wanted to put together about the weekend ...

  1. Your card is beautiful Carole, sorry to hear you're not feeling well, but glad you enjoyed your trip to London.
    Tried to send you a few pop up messages on FB, but didn't hear back from you, hope you are alright?

  2. Hey Carole, this is a really pretty card - love the glassine envelope! Glad you had a great trip, and can't wait to see your mini album (that's a great idea!), hope you're feeling better soon! Hugs, Rox.
