SHC - Anniversary - Love You ....

... Good morning! I'm here with my regular weekly post for Seven Hills Craft. Today's card is very special. Twenty years ago today I married the most wonderful man - Jonathan - the love of my life and my best friend. This card is for him:

Stamps: Concord & 9th - All the Love, Dahlia Turnabout, Petals and Pallets, Just Because, Lots to Say, Oh Snap!, Geode, Love & Hugs; MFT - Sweet Nothings
Inks: Gina K - Key Lime, Turquoise Sea, Blue Lagoon, Christmas Pine, Blue Raspberry, Blue Denim; Memento - Bamboo Leaves
Dies: C&9 - All the Love
Accessories: White Card; Gina K Card - Christmas Pine, Key Lime, Blue Lagoon; Nuvo Clear Aqua Shimmer Brush; Glossy Accents

I'm submitting this card to Never-Before-Used-Schtuff - NBUS#25 - All the Love is brand new and some of the older sets haven't been used before either 😁 I'm also playing along with Happy Little Stamper Anything Goes with Dies - HLSAGD#04.

I went through all my stash to find words to create a background for this anniversary card. I wanted words to express my feelings for Jonathan - my rock, BFF, you are gorgeous, all the feels, you matter to me, and my favourite - 'hi gorgeous' which is something I say to Jonathan all the time. I used my MISTI to check that all the stamps were straight and then used a variety of green, blue and teal inks to stamps the words. I filled the spaces with hearts from several of the stamp sets and did them free hand. Next, I used the large 'love' die from All the Love dies and cut four pieces in dark green, lime, turquoise and white. I layered them together and adhered the word to the centre of the card. I added some sparkle to the letters with a clear aqua shimmer brush and added shine with glossy accents. Once dry, I finished the front by adding the word 'you'. I cut the word from black card and only after gluing it on did I realise that I couldn't see it properly, so I cut another 'you' from white card and adhered that on top. Perfect!! On the inside of the card, I cut a mat layer of dark green card and on the white panel stamped a message - Jonathan is very much 'still the one'.

Normally, for a special anniversary we'd be going out to dinner, but as dining in at restaurants doesn't open up again until the middle of next month, we'll be dining at home! I can't believe how fast the last twenty years have gone by.

Anyway, that's all from me today. See you again soon.

Congratulations on your anniversary Deborah. It's mine and Alans 45th on Saturday.
Your card is stunning, the background is perfect and it's so lovely that you've used words and phrases that you say to Jonathon. The LOVE die in Teal is gorgeous, I love it x
