Penny Black It's from you - Wedding Anniversary card

Hi blogging friends From Millan.Net

The card I am sharing today was for my husband in celebration of our 24th Wedding Anniversary.  I am so fortunate that my husband loves cute and cuddly things and he just adores our cat Ruby - which is why I picked a Penny Black cat stamp for the card.

This is also my card for the My Time to Craft Challenge #227 of 'Spots and Stripes'.  My spots are obvious of course and the stripes are in the plaid designer paper.  I am also entering my card in the Penny Black June Saturday Challenge of Masculine.

I stamped the image onto watercolour paper using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and coloured it with Derwent Inktense and Faber-Castell watercolour pencils and a paintbrush.   I lightly chalked around the image using blue chalk for the sky and grey, green and brown for the ground.  I stamped the image again and cut out just the envelope and popped it up to give it some dimension.  I added a tiny bit of Kindyglitz Crystalina glitter glue to the envelope as I can get away with a bit of glitter on my husband's cards!  I added some Glossy Accents to the hearts on the card then popped this main panel up on dimensionals.

All the designer papers are by Lili of the Valley from their Crab Apple Lane - Country Gent pad.  I punched some hearts using the plaid paper and my Looped Hearts edge punch (they are the leftover punchies) and popped them up on dimensionals to the top RHS of the card.

The sentiment panel has tiny hearts at each end of the sentiment and these were punched from the plaid paper using my Arrows border punch (again, they are the leftover punchies which look like tiny hearts to me) and I added a tiny bit of Kindyglitz to them.  The sentiment is from a retired Elzybells clear set:  Everyday Greetings.

The punched bottom border was made using my Scalloped Scallops border punch - again using the plaid designer paper.

All the card layers were trimmed to 1/8" using my Perfect Layers Tools.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
