It’s that time of year again! The time of year I make “the card” – the one that I hem and haw over and look forward to with excitement and fear.
The Anniversary Card.
Of all the people in the world I make cards for, those that I create for my husband are the hardest – because he matters the most! I want him to feel how much I care for him by the end result of the cards that I make for him.
And the hardest of all, for me, is The Anniversary Card.
Why is this the hardest? Well, we have a plethora of wedding invitations left due to the printing companies mistake, and as such I have made it my mission to use a particular piece from those invitations for our anniversary card each year. Waste not, want not, right? In particular, I make sure I use the gold embossed pinecone. But, like the past two years’ cards, I also made ample use of the beautiful ivory cardstock our invitations were printed on – in fact, if you peeled off the panels of this card, you would find the embossed text of our invite itself appearing on the other sides of what you see facing out!
So, after weeks of deliberation and inspiration-hunting, I got to work. And after much back-and-forth, trying this and trying that, I am pleased to say I’m happy with the end result.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
