Well, today Emma and Rich have been married 4 years, 'bless them'.
I usually buy them a card but then get told off for not making one (Emma likes hand-made cards) so I've pulled out the stops and this is the one I've made for them this year.
I cut the hearts and text strip from some backing paper that I coloured myself by 'Smacking Ink on Acetate' and 'Spritzing'. I do love messing with inks! I then stamped over one of the hearts with a little 'Love' stamp adding a pearl to accentuate the heart-shaped 'O'. The colours of the cut out hearts teamed up lovely with the flowers on the strip of self adhesive edging ribbon I found left over in my ribbon box, and the ribbon teamed up perfectly with the piece of fawn pearlized paper I found in my box too. The paper wasn't quite wide enough to fit the card so I added a couple more strips of ribbon to fill in the space, topping off the peach ribbon with a few pearls. I'm quite pleased with the end product, it's amzing what you can make with odd bits you find among your scraps. Now all I need to do is to find a nice verse.
