Happy Anniversary Card

I found myself in need of an anniversary card recently. I thought I would use the Fond of Autumn set, since it has been sitting in my craft room for a few weeks now, waiting to be used. 🙂

Stamp: Fond of Autumn, Ringed with Nature, Celebrate with Flowers (retired)

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Mint Macaron

Blends: Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green, Old Olive, Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie

Paper: Basic White thick and regular, So Saffron, Splendid Day specialty DSP

Accessories: Autumn Bouquet dies, Stitched Rectangles dies

I was going to make a regular A2 card. But, the card base I grabbed from my stash was scored for an easel card, so I thought… why not? It’s a quick and easy way to make a card into a fun-fold card. Plus, I heard that the recipients like “popup cards.” 🙂

As you can see from the photo above, I remembered to stamp the envelope! How many of you send out cards in nekid envelopes? *raises hand*

For the easel stopper, I put the inside sentiment on a stitched rectangle. I also decorated with a single flower from the Fond of Autumn set.

Did you know that the main image of Fond of Autumn can be cut out as one big piece or as three pieces? Yup, there’s a die for both! After coloring, I used the die that cuts the main image into three pieces. I layered them so that the flowers are on top and the acorns are hidden. Took a few tries to get it to look balanced. Across the bottom is a banner from Fond of Autumn. The sentiment is from Ringed with Nature. Because it’s a photopolymer set, I was able to bend the sentiment to fit the banner. (Yay for that!)

Thanks for stopping by!
