Celebrating 11 years!!: This is the card I created for you today. This year I will be celebrating my 11th Wedding Anniversary and I thought this would be a nice idea for my anniversary card. Searching online I found out the the flower for the 11th anniversary is a tulip, so I used the pretty tulip from Flower Blocks 1.

Directions:
  • Make card base from Ivory cardstock. 5.5" square
  • Stamp front saying from Celebrating Milestones Set in Jet Black Archival.
  • Stamp tulip on Watercolor paper, color and die-cut image with Square Nestabilities. I colored the image with Inktense Pencils (Derwent)
  • Mat tulip on a red panel using Fleur de Lis Squares Nestabilities. Cover tulip with Crystal Lacquer and let it dry (about 30 minutes)
  • Add panel to card front with large pop dots.
  • Inside: Mat a piece of Red CS ((4.5" square) and a piece of Ivory (4.25" square).
  • Stamp sentiment from Anniversary Innies in Jet Black Archival Ink.
  • Stamp little heart (x2) in Memento Angel Pink Ink. Heart from Bottom of my heart set.
