Hi all! Happy Saturday! Hope you are enjoying your weekend! Yesterday was our 11th wedding anniversary. We always try to do a small gift within the modern or traditional gift vein. For the 11th, the choices were steel or fashion jewelry. Of course, I said MFT die-namics are steel! LOL! We didn’t do our gift exchange yet so we shall see what he decided on — he doesn’t like to buy me craft supplies. I got him a steel “keep cool” beer mug and filled it with root beer Jelly Belly’s. I may have stolen a few!
Today I have the card I made for him (this morning — talk about being behind!) I was a bit stumped by this week’s MFTWSC sketch, but I think I figured it out.
I pulled out lots of MFT goodies to make this card. I inked up the Lace Background stamp with Delicata Gold ink and stamped on to Vintage Cream card stock (PTI). I did heat set the ink a bit since I was under a time constraint. I then inked up another piece of Vintage Cream with the Romantic Script background in Steel Grey. Using my MISTI for both of these background made for easy stamping. After cutting a Pierced Circle from Vintage Cream, I stamped the You and Me from Always & Forever in Versamark and embossed it with black embossing powder. Amazingly, I remembered to use my embossing buddy before stamping. I never remember that! I cut a small ampersand from gold cardstock (I think this is the gold shine card stock in the MFT store.) I then cut a Sentiment Strip from Vintage Cream and stamped again with Delicata the Happy Anniversary from Clearly Sentimental about Anniversaries. Finally, I popped up my circle and the sentiment strip with some dimensionals and added a trio of gold sequins.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
