This week Laurie is hosting our monthly theme challenge:  Wedding/Anniversary.  I used the Forever Fern bundle to create today’s card in Very Vanilla with gold accents. However, the colors could be easily switched out to create a card to match a couple’s chosen hues.  I LOVE making wedding and anniversary cards, and I can’t wait to see what you create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

The stunning Forever Gold Laser Cut paper takes center stage on today’s “golden” anniversary card.  In order for the leaves to really stand out and not become lost among the gold lattice, I created a banner backdrop.  The Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder creates a subtle pattern and adds texture.

A simple “Love” sentiment was all I felt was needed. I wanted something elegant, in script, and this sentiment, from Forever Blossoms was perfect. Of course, bows and gems complete the look. (Note: This gorgeous gold ribbon is part of the Boho Indigo product medley.)
