Hello Sweet Readers,
How was your Christmas? Did you have snow? We've had flakes falling, but nothing that would amount to anything! I heard that 65% of the USA is under a blanket of white! You lucky dogs! I'm like a child when I see flakes falling! Our Christmas was wonderful. I got some new kitchen toys including a Breville mini pie maker! I can't wait to play with it!
It's anniversary time for us. This year marks #37! Our time together has just flown by. So many things seem like they happened yesterday. Treasure your sweetie. We are here for only a short time. This is the card I made for my sweet love. I didn't use a Tilda on it, but did use several Doo-hickey dies. I featured them on the inside of the card. You can purchase them at Magnolia-licious. As a matter of fact, many of Diana's products (including Doo-hickey Dies) are on sale! Some are 20% off! Check them out!
Below are the dies I used on my card. Just click the title for a link to the shop.

Here are the images for my card. If you have any questions, just ask!
For the front, I used a blue, brown, and off white color scheme since it is for my husband. I used an adorable Teddy Bo image that I've had for a long time. The veil has been treated using two products. First, I painted over the veil with a white liquid that has glitter already in it. Next, I used my Stardust Stickles to outline the folds of the veil as well as the snowflakes scattered over the image. I used a Nellie Snellen die in the lower left corner Then, I elevated the cut out on pop dots. I thought the shape was similar in shape to the large die cut used in the upper right corner. I ran a strip of satin ribbon behind the mats, added a charm from my stash,as well as flowers that matched the color scheme. In the lower left is a clay sentiment which I mounted on aqua glittered cardstock. I added a butterfly to add emphasis.
Here are the interior shots:
As hard as I tried to keep this masculine, I couldn't resist the bow! The ribbon was screaming, "Use me! Use me!" So, I caved and used it! I made the keys from the same aqua glittered cardstock I used on the front. I also trimmed the heart on the right in the glittered cardstock as well. All that is missing is the mushy message. I just love that Doo-hickey Doily Die. Look how pretty it looks! The heart swirls were just the perfect size and shape. I also used a triple heart die from Quickutz (I think).
I hope you like my card. I'm not that good at making masculine cards. Good thing my sweet husband loves flowers! Speaking of flowers, isn't that burlap one on the front too cute? I got that from a dear, sweet friend. XO
Well, that's all she wrote! Now, I can get started on a New Year's card. In case I'm not back before New Year's Eve, have a safe and happy one!
