Happy Anniversary

Hubs and I are celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary. As part of our celebrations, we write one another a letter as we did on the eve of our wedding. I think I fall more in love with him each year as I write that letter and reflect on our time together.  

I have two cards for hubs this year to go along with the letter.

This is a little 31/4 by 31/4 inch card. Its sweet and silly inside. 
The stamps are from Simon Says Stamp, Clearly Besotted and Avery Elle.
I used Copics for coloring, memento ink for stamping and spellbinder dies for the layers.

This is my serious card for hubs.  The stamp set used for all but the Happy Anniversary is from a Penny Black set that my sweet and talented blogging friend Greta (thank you again!) sent me. I stamped and clear embossed the graffitti heart then colored it with Barn Door distress ink. My over panel was stamped with the birds and I added the Happy from Clearly Besotted and the Anniversary from Avery Elle to the sentiment stack. I used a spellbinders Heart die to create the partial heart window.  I finished the cut with a craft blade around the two birds. This panel  is popped up. Red, Black and white were our wedding colors and I love using them for hubs' anniversary card.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
