For this Anniversary card, I wanted a monocromatic look, but something softer than the traditional Black & White. I decided to go with the gorgeous Nature’s Sweetness Designer Paper which comes in the beautiful vintage-inspired Pebbled Path color with rich gold foil. I paired with Gray Granite and I absolutely love how it turned out! If you’d prefer a non-monochromatic look, make sure you check out my Color Combination Library, which will give you lots of inspiration!

Handmade Happy Anniversary Card

My goal for this handmade Happy Anniversary card was to select the right colors, with small touches such as the gold foiling on the paper, to make an Anniversary card that’s as unique as the love it celebrates. I hope my friends I’m sending this to can feel that love!

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Fold the 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” piece of Basic White cardstock in half at the 4-1/4” score line. 
  2. Fold the Pebbled Path cardstock in half at the score line.  Adhere the 4” x 5-1/4” piece of Basic White cardstock inside the card.
  3. Using your Paper Trimmer, cut the Nature’s Sweetness Papers in half on the diagonal.  (Tip:  use the remaining 2 pieces on another card.)  Line up the 2 pieces on the card front so that they leave an equal border all around the paper.
  4. Stamp the sentiments onto the 3” scraps of Basic White and Gray Granite cardstocks, using the Black Memento ink pad.  Punch out both sentiments using the Hexagon Punch from the Bundle.
  5. Adhere the sentiments to the card front as shown in the sample using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. To finish, add 2 of the Neutral Sequins on the White sentiment tag.
