Happy Anniversary

Today my dear mom and dad are celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary. 45 Years!! That's wonderful, isn't it?

I sat down this weekend to create an anniversary card for my parents, but it was quite a bit of a struggle. I've hardly created anything in the past few weeks and really had to get in the mood again to make some cards. For this anniversary card I was inspired by this card from my sister-in-law Lisette. I didn’t really copy Lisette's card design, but she inspired me to use certain elements such as a stamped background, the large doily and a heart cut from sheet music.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Kraft), Papertrey Ink (Rustic White, Pure Poppy) | Patterned paper: Papertrey Ink (Damask Designs) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Damask Designs) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Fresh Snow), Versafine (Onyx Black) | Ribbon: Papertrey Ink (Raspberry Fizz) | Button: Papertrey Ink (White & Cream Mix) | Twine: May Arts | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Limitless Layers: 2 1/2" Circle Collection, Parisian Lace Doily), sewing machine | Adhesive foam dots: Zva Creative (AD01CB101) | Other: sheet music

Happy Anniversary, mom & dad. Hope you have a wonderful day! xoxo

I'll be back with another card tomorrow. Until then...


  1. Eerst van harte gefeliciteerd met de trouwdag van je ouders. Wat een tijd!
    Je kaart is ondanks je gevecht heel goed gelukt en heel anders dan die van je schoonzus.
    Mooie kleuren ook.

    Love it!! The colour combination is perfect for an anniversary (love setting it off with kraft), and there are so many fun details (especially how the doily looks on the damask background!) Thanks for sharing!
