Well I find that I do this all the time...short on cards for weddings, graduations, or anniversaries...I decided that everyone needs cards for all occasions so while creating cards for the card club I added an anniversary card to the list. I love the one in the current Idea Book with the Card Word Puzzle Stamp Set (C1494) It is a 8x3.5 card which is also another thing I don't make often...for instance maybe once...This card uses the Wishes: All Stacked Up pattern.
I made the card on a cream base and added Dutch Blue Cardstock and using the Sanding Block in the Sanding Kit (Z1294) I sanded in a cross-thatch pattern to add some distressed marks to the white-cored cardstock.
I added some spritzed White Daisy cardstock squares (I used Walnut Ink in Java) and stamped my sentiment and two Desert Sand leaves onto the squares. I stamped three flowers onto the cream squares and using the Close To My Heart Watercolor Pencils I colored in each flower and blended. Cut them out and left a slight border around each one.
Once all the pieces were ready I mounted the sentiment onto an Outdoor Denim Square and placed each piece onto the card front. I added some Bitty Pearls which I colored with a Copic marker and two Mocha Opaque Pearls onto the centers of the flowers.
Onto the inside of the card I stamped a flower and colored with the watercolors and voila...New Card!
