Greetings! I hope everyone is having a lovely week. Thank you all for the anniversary well wishes. We had a lovely day together. We went on a zip line tour (10 lines! still a tiny bit sore from that, by the way), went to dinner, and then came home and watched an old movie. Not a bad day at all. Anyway, to continue with the anniversary theme we have going this week I thought today I'd share a cheerful birthday card made using this year's anniversary set from Papertrey Ink.
This anniversary set is quickly becoming one of my favorites! The handwriting-style font paired with the relatively traditional block serif are such a fun combination. And the grouped poppies are simple and lovely. Anyhow, I started by stamping the poppies and sentiment on a piece of white cardstock. I love the way drawn frames give a ground to the images they surround, but I'm not always such a fan of the stark contrast that often results. So my solution was to score a frame around my poppies. I love how it still gives the boundaries, but it's super subtle. I matted that white panel with a piece of Spring Moss cardstock and set it aside.
Next I cut a card front from Terra Cotta Tile cardstock and stamped the Tin Types background with a little watermark ink. Once that was adhered to a white base, I wrapped the entire card with Rustic Jute Button Twine and mounted my poppy panel overtop with foam tape. The card still needed a little something, so I stamped a couple of extra poppies and added them to the main image panel with foam tape.
Thanks for checking in today. Have a wonderful weekend! See you soon!
