Modern Anniversary card

Hi everyone, Lou here

I though I’d share an anniversary card I have made using up bits from my ‘Through the Letterbox’ kits from January’s ‘Seeing Stars’ and February’s ‘Love Is’ kits. You really do get oodles and oodles in each kit – which can in turn be used for lots of different projects – not just for the theme intended that month. F … A … B  as the Thunderbirds would say ….

For my card, I have been aching to use the acrylic figures included in the February ‘Love Is’ kit and as Valentine’s Day has been and gone, hence why I have used them to create a modern anniversary card. The only thing on my card that is not from either the January ‘Seeing Stars’ kit  or February ‘Love Is’ kit, the embossed gilded background & ‘Happy Anniversary’ stamped sentiment …

I have inked one of the larger doilies and then added layers of ribbon banners. Next was the note card – again with ribbon added. The acyrlic figures were covered with Nuvo embellishment mousse and buffed back to still create a semi translucent feel. These in turn have been simply decorated with hearts, gems & the sentiment. Did you notice that they are also holding hands …

The large chipboard sentiment was coloured with Nuvo embellishment mousse and using a fine black micron pen, I added a faux stitched detail. I’ve used the sentiment to anchor my figures in place as I did not want any glue to show through.

As a final final finishing touch, I have added selection of wooden stars adorned with hearts and gems plus a beautiful wooden heart button.

What have you created with your kits? I would love to see your designs, so do please share,
