Project 331: 7 year anniversary card


My colleague is celebrating his 7th wedding anniversary. He asked me to  make a card that incorporated copper and/or wool and peonies as that is his wife's favorite flower.

I couldn't find a peony stamp in time but this rose stamp has a nice folded centre that could probably pass as a peony. Kind of. Sometimes we have to make things in our stash work hard for us. I heat embossed it in pink powder and added the glittery 7 in the corner.

For the copper bit, I took a little brass key I had and painted it orangy brown and added some gold glitter to lighten it. To get the wool in I took a cotton wool pad and die cut out 4 hearts to symbolize the 4 members of his family.  The background is a Trader Jane pink paper that I love for its richness. The sentiment is die cut and then to make it stand out a little bit (I liked it sort of hidden)I covered it in a wink of stella shimmer.

Love it now that it is finished, I think the couple will love it as well.

  1. I love it too! I love all the details that are not too fussy and tie it all together, that piece of ribbon holding the key is making me swoon a bit..Cx
