Anniversary "Love" Card

One of my newest creations, again using a sheet of transparency film as my card base. This was a (very) belated anniversary card for my brother-in-law and his wife. And now that I have finally given it to them, I can share it with you!

Similar in design to my "Wishing You Flowers" card, I again decided that I wanted to use the patterned cardstock as a backdrop for the cover design. But I also wanted a space for an interior sentiment and signatures. My solution was to fold my cardstock in half and then adhere it to the back cover of the inside of the card. For this card, I chose to spell out the exterior sentiment using patterned chipboard letters. The entire card is adorned with a length of green grosgrain ribbon tied in a knot along the top.

Bonus Tip! When working with transparencies, I like to place a gridded cutting mat under the clear sheets. I use the grid to align my paper and accents when adhering them to the transparency film.
