1st Wedding anniversary

I made this card for our friends - Julie and Steve - who celebrate their 1st wedding anniversary on Sunday. I posted their wedding card on this blog when I first started off and had a lot of fun making this card for them!

Shame the sentiment reflected the light - it's a silver Dufex one and just says 'Best Wishes', although the insert does say Happy 1st Anniversary!. The card is an 8" x 8" square white one with an embossed dots pattern. Then a silver layer of textured card, cut out round the edges using my only Martha Stewart Deep Edging Punch - no fancy 'Punch Around The Corner' ones as yet but I'm working on it! To hide the oddly matched corners I used a mix of the sentiment, 3-D butterflies ( these are lush!) and a selection of Prima flowers/pearl brads. Then my trademark organza bow down the left....and not forgetting the soooo cute House Mouse decoupage in the middle, which was the whole point of the card! As Julie and Steve are such a 'close knit' pair it seemed very appropriate! :)

Thanks for looking, and even if you don't comment it's nice that you called by!

Hi Di
Love this - so cute - but not too OTT. Which MS punch is it? Great idea of covering the corners so no one knows. LOL!

Hi Karen

It's Martha Stewart's Deep Edge Floral Vines - they don't put the name of the punch on the thing itself which is a bit annoying. I 'spose I could write it on in permanent pen - it's handy to know when posting on the blog! Di x
