Happy Anniversary!

Hi everyone and welcome back. I hope your morning started well, and that you've managed to banish the Monday blues :-)

I wanted to share the card I made for my daughter and her hubby as they celebrated their 6th Wedding Anniversary.

It's a heart easel card! Isn't it pretty?

Here is a close up of the "easel" part.

And a close up of the swan. I'm just totally in love with these dies.

And here is a close up of the stamped portion of the card.

Now for the recipe:
Card base - Silhouette design #116469
Cardstock - White - GinaK heavy weight
Cardstock - Blue - The Paper Studio
Swan & Cattails - Marianne Designs dies
Beach Grass - io Dies
Banner - Spellbinders die
Cattails Stamp - Marianne Designs
Stamped greeting - Cardz TV - Happy Days Stamp set
Memento Inks to shade
Copic Markers to colour

I got the inspiration for this card from Astrid from Astrid's Kaarten. She has the most beautiful cards on her blog.  I really do love the way this card turned out. It took me a while to figure out how to reverse emboss the second swan, but I got it :-)

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog today and found a little inspiration in turn.

Till next time,
Crafty Hugs
