It is our wedding anniversary on Saturday, and I wanted to make an anniversary card for my hubby in a spring-fold heart shape. I've used Lenny & Linda Wedding, for my first spring-fold card (far easier when I followed a tutorial). I'd been meaning to make one of these for ages, and it was really just a bit of folding, but I wanted the card to be in the shape of a heart, so I cut out a heart and stuck it over the main diamond part of the spring card. The fab papers are Dreamy from Robyn's Fetish and the sentiment is one of my own (see below).
Please pop on over to the Stamp Fairy challenge blog to see the other creations by the fab teamies, and to enter our "3 embellishments" challenge.
OK, I have to admit that I was a bit concerned that my card was going to be a bit 'girlie' to give to my hubby after I'd added the lace, but I thought it needed something around the edge (plus I couldn't help myself). Then I was casually chatting to my hubby about our Anniversary (ie reminding him that it is this week, cos he'd completely forgotten!!) and I asked him what kind of card he'd like to receive from me. He replied 'not one of yours, cos they're not very masculine'. Nice !!! I can't think what he means [says she who is surrounded by pink, lacy, glittery crafting stuff]. I wonder if I can find a zombie anniversary image which would better suit his masculine taste, with a matching sentiment of "Wishing you a 'dead' good Anniversary"? Otherwise he's going to get a post-it note with "Happy Anniversary" written on it with a biro. Today's card has therefore been added to my supplies for someone else who will appreciate it more, while I go back to the drawing board!
