An Anniversary Card

Our youngest son and his wife celebrate their 14th anniversary next week; here's the card I made for them.

supplies: cream and a Doodlebug textured pink cardstock, watercolor paper, Simon's Stacked Hearts, Painted Hugs, and Stitched Rectangles dies, worn lipstick and spiced marmalade distress inks

I smooshed some distress inks on my craft mat, spritzed with water, and then brushed the colors on a panel of watercolor paper.  When it was dry, I trimmed it out using the largest Stitched Rectangle die, then glued it to my cream card base.  The Stacked Hearts were cut out twice, and all the little hearts were pushed out of the design, then I glued the frames together.  I reserved 14 of the tiny hearts and dipped them into the worn lipstick puddle before re-applying 11 of them back into place; the other 3, representing our grandchildren, were placed outside of the frame.  "Hugs" was cut out 3 times and stacked before adding to the card.

Thanks for stopping by - enjoy your weekend!
