Today is our anniversary. So I am sharing the card I made for my husband. I struggle sometimes with masculine cards, and a special one is especially difficult for me.
I bought the Rustic Retreat stamp set as a Winter / Christmas set to use. But when I was looking for the set for the anniversary card, I stumbled upon it and pulled it out. After considering, I decided it would work perfectly. At first I stamped the animals together with trees in the background. But it just did not feel right. So back to the paper trimmer and this was the result. A totally different layout than I started with!
When I searched for the proper background, I was looking for greens to match the grass in the animal squares. I couldn’t find what I liked, so then just went through all of the designer series paper. I found this piece, believe it or not, on the back side of one of the Come Sail Away DSP sheets. I don’t know if it’s supposed to be coral or something underwater. But I feel like it works perfectly.
Thank you for stopping in today. I hope you will return on Monday for another new project. Hope you can get some stamping in this weekend!! I am planning on it!
