It’s A Milestone Anniversary!

Anniversary 10

Red and green are opposite each other on the Color Wheel, and whenever you use opposites together, it’s an attention-getter! Of course, a 10-year wedding anniversary is worthy of note, but later on in this post you’ll see why I put some green with the red & white, which we traditionally associate with love and marriage.

I also used the Happy Heart embossing folder on the background and a couple of punches; the small heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, and the slender arrow from the retired What’s Up Punch. I just punched two of them and attached one to the top of the card and one to the bottom. This is a great punch, and if you don’t have one yet, you’re in luck, you can still get it on the Clearance Rack for around $10.00! But I wouldn’t wait; once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Perfect 10

I used a sentiment from the Number of Years set to stamp “Happy Anniversary” on the front and the coordinating Large Numbers Framelits dies for the number “10.” But for the inside I computer-generated a specific message on a separate piece of Whisper White card stock using a font that complemented the lettering style of my cover sentiment.

So here’s the gift that I gave Reggie for our anniversary yesterday, commemorating our wedding location in Vermont 10 years ago:

The Milestone Anniversary card is quick and easy; you can make it in any colors that are significant to you. Here are the supplies that I used:

    Oh darn!! I missed your anniversary—and it’s clearly marked on my calendar!! I keep thinking we’re a week behind, and that everything is a week away. Obviously not.

    Well, that is a GREAT card and just denotes that you are still a Happy Couple who were certainly “Meant To Be” <3
