Happy Anniversary Card by Fran



Today for McMahon Five Designs I created a cute anniversary card using the cutest image from Imagine That! Digis by Kris Breach.   The set is called Sweet Tea.

I used two different card stock papers to make the card.  Neenah Classic Baronial Ivory and Neenah Environment Desert Storm.  The card is from my stash and was purchased from the Silhouette Store and cut on my Silhouette Portrait.  I distressed the edges of the card using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Festive Berries.  On the the top layer of the flower border edge I used Martha Stewart glitter Tourmaline.  The pretty pink pearls are by Kaisercraft.  The beige lace on the edge of the card is by Maya Road Vintage Lace Tape in Buttermilk.

I created an envelope for my card using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. My card measured approximately 4-1/8th square.  I used the measurement for a 4 x 4-1/2” card size. My card with all its embellishments fit perfectly inside the envelope.  See below.


I decorated the front of the envelope using a stamp set called Envelope Sentiments.  It really gives a nice personal touch to the envelope don’t you think?

And this image shows you how nicely my card fits in the envelope using the measurements I stated above.  I couldn’t be happier with how perfect it fits in the envelope.
