Happy Ruby Anniversary Malcolm and Denise
I have been working on a special project this week, a card and matching gift box to celebrate our friends Malcolm and Denises ruby wedding anniversary which is today, 40 years of marriage is a real achievement in this day and age isn't it. Happy anniversary Denise and Malcolm and congratulations!
So here it is, I made a basic easel card to begin with. On the upright panel I have used red card, and 2 digi papers from a Nitwits Collection called so berry and I have matted and layered these onto red card.
The image is a Lili of the Valley stamp which is one of my favourites and I have coloured it in with Promarkers. I have added a die cut flourish to the right hand side and red ribbon with white dots along the centre and made a matching bow, adding a red rose on the top, I have also added a LOVE silver charm using chain underneath. There are 3 red pearls in the top left hand corner and the bottom right hand corner and then added roses with Pinflair.
On the base panel I have used matching digi papers and used a Martha Stewart heart punch on a piece of red card. The sentiment stamp is from Lili of the valley which I matted and layered onto a circle and scalloped circle nestie die cuts. I have added our message in a heart shaped die cut layered on a scalloped heart die cut on the back of the card.
I have made the box to match, it measures 15cm square, again using red card and the 2 digi papers from the same Nitwit Collection. On the top layer I have used a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch called Deco flowers which gives it the pretty edging. I added a printed message in red on the top of the box and cut with the large heart and scalloped heart nestie and added a red rose flower to the top of the heart.
I wanted to do something special for them so I hope they are going to like it.
