Last year I started making duplicate cards. Up to that point, I tried to make each card different for valentines and anniversaries going to my children. But now with all six children married, I decided it was time that they all get the same design for their anniversary cards. So here is the card for this year:
I haven't made very many easel cards but I enjoy making them when I take the time to do them. The layers are dark brown, rose pink, and dark tan with the inside being ivory.
The tan is embossed with a wood grain Darice EF. The circles are cut with Die-namic Circle Stax dies and the hearts are Cuttlebut dies.
On the inside I stamped Happy Anniversary on a piece of ivory and then attached it to the rose cardstock that I had punched with a Recollections border punch.
The tree is a digital image by Eureka which I printed in brown and then added brown and pink Copics.
So many of the trees in this area are in bloom with beautiful pink blossoms - my inspiration for this card. Some of the heart blossoms have a touch of clear star ink. After I decided to use the tree, I found the quote which I printed on ivory and put on the inside of the card.
It is not a super fancy card but I like it and the men might like it better than a frilly, girly card.
