An Anniversary

Yesterday, my husband and I celebrated our ten year wedding anniversary.  The actual day kind of got lost amongst birthday and party celebrations for our six year old son who celebrated his birthday the day before.  So it's with pleasure I can share my wedding aniversary card that I had made for him, utterly and totally inspired by Pinterest.

So according to the wise old world of the internet, a ten year anniversary is celebrated with tin!

Tin is the traditional material for the 10th wedding anniversary and the 10 year wedding anniversary is called tin because is a symbol of how a successful marriage needs to be flexible and durable plus bending it without getting brokenSource.
 Anyway, I digress.  I made my husband a card which I hope he likes!

I've used 'safe' male colours for this card!  Midnight Muse, Night of Navy and Baja Breeze (retired by I love it)! Highlighted with touchers of Whisper White.

I FINALLY used my Hearts a Flutter stamp set and matching Hearts a Flutter framelits to create the banners and the little hearts.  Although I did add the little hearts and love sentiment with another stamp set!

Inspired by the original card, I used Midnight Muse ribbon, a bit of hemp, some retired DSP and adhered to an embossed background.  Of course, using the honeycomb embossing folder - one of my all-time favourites!

Put this all together, I've made a little card for my WH.  I wish I had noticed the Happy Anniversary sentiment was crooked when I took these photos!!  It is adhered with a tiny silver brad so I didn't think to check.  Oh well....

To my wonderful husband, here's to another ten years plus more.  Together is my favourite place to be!

You can find my inspiration for this card here by Kirsty Cooley.

So here's what I used:

Stamps: Hearts a Flutter, Sweetly Framed, Express Yourself & Elementary Elegance
Inks: Baja Breeze, Night of Navy & Midnight Muse
Papers: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Baja Breeze & DSP
Accessories: Vintage pin, Linen Thread, Midnight Muse stitched ribbon & mini silver brad
Big Shot: Honeycomb EF & Hearts a Flutter Framelits
