Happy Anniversary

Friday was my 5th anniversary and unfortunately hubby and I did not get to celebrate as things were busy here, so we postponed it until today. Now I can finally post his 'card' I made him. Every year I do a little project for him instead of a card. I saw this idea somewhere while cruising around looking at blogs and websites and thought this would make a perfect project.

Not all of this is Stampin' Up!® as I used papers from our wedding album to coordinate with embellishments and paper from Stampin' Up!®. Please bear with me as this is going to be a lot of pictures.

This is basically a 12x24 piece of cardstock that is folded in half to be 6x24 and scored every 4 inches. You then accordion fold it, and this is the end result. When you 'glue' it closed you use Sticky Strip (#104294) and make sure not to glue the 'pockets' closed so you can put the tags into the middle. If you need more directions or more information on this please leave a comment and I will try to help you out.

It might be hard to see but over the champagne I used micro beads (#104266) to give a little bit of depth.... it shows really well in real life. The silver glasses were cut out of brushed silver cardstock(#100712).

I used a clear medium window sheet (#114323) to put the die cuts onto. I also used tombow adhesive (#110755) over the die cuts to glue the purple glitter (#108796 fine cosmo).

The purple cardstock behind a lot of the pictures and on this page is Almost Amethyst cardstock (#102158) and the white is Whisper White cardstock (#100730)


I used sponge daubers (#102845) and basic gray classic ink (#109120) to ink around the edges.

The frame around Eternal and the ribbon slide are from the hodgepodge hardware kit (#112454) which is also available in Vanilla. The ribbon is 1/4" Elegant Eggplant grosgrain ribbon (#109039)

I used a clear medium window sheet (#114323) to put the rub-ons onto.

The flower and halfback pearl is from the Pretties kit (#109114) and I used a sponge dauber (#102892) to put Almost Amethyst classic ink (#101723) around the edges and the mini library clips (#109587) are great.

The clear rhinestones (#113144) are so easy to use.

I also inked around these edges with Whisper White craft ink (#101731) and Almost Amethyst classic ink (#101723) using the sponge daubers (#102892) again.

The ribbon I used on these tags is the 5/8" Brocade Blue Grosgrain (#109057)

I also printed out my journaling on the vellum cardstock (#101856) which is great to run through the printer.


I hope you like it, I had a ton of fun making it.

Until next time....Happy Scrappin!
