Make a framelit anniversary card in a jiffy using your Stampin' Up! nested heart dies and your Big Shot machine.
Making a framelit anniversary card can take some thought, or in this case, not too much thought! I know we have a whole year between anniversaries to think about how to make our loved one feel special, but sometimes the date rolls around and we find we're not really prepared. Or maybe you don't get much time without your spouse being in the house, so it is hard to surprise him/her. The nested heart dies from Stampin' Up! and your Big Shot can come to the rescue in situations like this. Here's the sweet greeting I made for my husband with them:
All of my supplies came from Stampin' Up! and can mostly be ordered from my SusanSalutations shop.
You can secretly assemble everything you need before you start making your card. This makes it easy to go ahead and make all the layers, and it saves time if you have limited time to craft before your spouse sees what you are making. But hey, you can always hide the unfinished (or finished) card under your craft mat if you hear him/her coming! Lol!
You will need:
Here's What to Do:
You can add a real ribbon bow instead of the framelit bow, pop up more of the layers with dimensionals, add another layer to the card back, vary the colours you use, add sparkle instead of pearls with rhinestones, use this idea for Valentine's Day, add a lacy paper doily instead of or as well as the designer series paper.
Make the card your own!
Adding to your Framelit Anniversary Card with a gift:
Make a pretty heart-shaped box with the same framelts and fill it with chocolates ro something that your love loves. Mine loves pistachio nuts, so I could add a little cellophane bag of them to the inside of this box, for example.
Make a romantic album to give your love.
Make a chocolate slider sleeve as a gift.
