Love is in the air–His & Hers versions

October is our anniversary month. Next week we will celebrate 4 years of marriage. Since we had a fall wedding, I picked the stamp set Season of Friendship to make an anniversary card.

I made 2 versions–one for me (with lots of color and bling) and one for my husband (a little more plain).

The above card uses creamy caramel card stock for the base, layered with dusty durango textured card stock. As for the images, I stamped the tree in chocolate chip ink on whisper white card stock. The leaves are stamped in Dusty Durango, More Mustard, and Old Olive. After I finished stamping the leaves, I looked over and saw my Snow Buddies set on the desk and used the swirl image, stamped in creamy caramel ink, to create a fall breeze. Then, I stamped a few falling leaves in the “breeze”.

Across the bottom of the card, I looped a piece of 5/8″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon around the dusty durango/whisper white layer, tying the ends together with Hemp Twine.

The sentiment is my own, printed from my computer, on dusty durango textured card stock and punched out using the Scallop Oval Punch. I also stamped the outline from one of the Oval All stamps in dusty durango ink using the stampamajig to get it perfectly set. To finish off the oval, I punched 3 holes using the cropadile and used Circle Rhinestone Brads in the same colors as the leaves. That was then attached to the card base using dimensionals. Tip: I like to cut the ends of the brad tabs off by using my Craft and Rubber Scissors so they don’t stick out. Then, I put small glue dots over the backs to keep them from spinning.

This is the male version of the anniversary card! For this one, the base is mellow moss, layered with chocolate chip textured card stock and whisper white. I stamped the tree in chocolate chip ink again, and the leaves are all stamped in dusty durango. Everything else is the same except that I wrote the sentiment in chocolate chip marker and then punched it out. No brads, no bling, just the way he would like it 🙂
