Good morning everyone! Today I am celebrating 25 years of marriage with my husband Chris, and thought I would share with you the card and gift packaging I made. Here is the card:
I am really into using kraft card stock and embossing folders lately...I LOVE the distressed look! This card uses Stampin' Up's "Lots of Love" Letter Press Plate (I believe this is a retired item now) and "Under the Stars" stamp set. This grizzly bear just cracks me up and I tend to use him a lot on male cards. I used the letter press plate in my Cuttlebug and then sponged it with Stampin' Up's Soft Seude ink. I also stamped the bear in the Soft Seude and then layered it with Soft Seude card stock. The sentiment I typed on the computer and is printed on vellum. I added copper colored brads to the four corners to dress it up a little.
My husband is an extreme dark chocolate lover, and so I "dressed up" a few of the Lindt chocolate bars that he loves with more of the kraft card stock.
The smaller package is a piece of card stock cut at 8 1/2 x 7 1/2 and scored at 2", 2 1/2", 6", 6 1/2" and then stamped with the star and bear from the "Under the Stars" set. The package on the right is a full sheet of card stock (8 1/2 x 11) and scored at 2 1/4" and 6 1/4" on the short side. I then stamped the number "25" using my Versa Mark pad and the star stamp again with the Soft Seude ink. I tried to crimp the ends but it didn't work too well because of the thickness of 2 layers of card stock. I also used Bakers Twine from The Twinery (color is "Flax") on my card and the packages.
Thanks for checking in again today...I love it when you do! :-)
