Ruby Wedding Anniversary


This was so simple to do, but looks quite effective. The base card is one of those big ones, 8 x 6", the birds and heart are a cut from the wedding solutions cartridge with a few blobs of liquid pearls and some gems added. I used the Martha Stewart heart border punch, the black lace is a self adhesive strip by papermania, and the embossed flowers on the right were done with one of the cuttlebug border punches. When I was photographing it I noticed a blob of red liquid pearls right in the centre of the back of the card. Oh bummer, another cover-up job. Anyone who gets one of my cards, probably turns it over and says 'look, she's even put some little hearts on the back................' not realising that under the sweet little hearts lies a messy disaster.
The wording was done using a home-made rub on. Simply type your words, set your printer so that the mirror image option is ON, and print onto the smooth side of a transparency sheet. Let the ink set for a minute, then use as you would any rub-on.
Talking of Martha Stewart, at long last these punches are available in the UK, I am so delighted, although I think I own most of them, but it means that I can now use them on magazine cards (I have to be able to credit a UK supplier for stuff I use). Go to Stamps and Memories - they have them on their website.

    Going to be on the look out for the border punches now, we are well behind the times here in the Province, so that will be another thing to add to the list for Brimingham lol.
