Anniversary Card

Good evening! Well I did get to do some awesome visiting last night and I was so inspired by all that I saw and really realized how much I truly miss visiting all of you. Today's card was created for my son and daughter in law's first wedding anniversary. They were married a year ago on June 5! Oh my gosh how time has flown! I created this card using the same colors that I had created their wedding invitations and programs with. Lucky me I had some of it left over! This is a 6x6 gatefold card. The panels were embossed with the Sizzix Diamonds and Dots embossing folder. The medallion is a Spellbinders Pendant called Lotus. The sentiment was created using JustRite Wedding Stamp Ensemble kit and then cut with the Circle Nestie and embossed. I sprayed the whole card with Shimmerz Frost...although you really can't see it. I didn't have a 6x6 envelope so I made my own using my Scor Pal. If you would like to know how to do that there are directions on their web site for using the scor pal to make all different sizes of envelopes. Sure comes in handy when I make an odd sized card that I don't have an envie for. Well I hope you all had a great day today! Thanks for taking time to stop in and see me! We are sitting with two of our grandkids tonight overnight...how blessed we are to have our grandkids so close so we can love on them!

HUGS!

I always love seeing cards that are a different fold or shape, something out of the norm! This is great, love the pendant die & embossing folder!
