I had a bit of a mad rush to make a good friends anniversary card, as i struggle with wedding/anniversary cards i wasnt sure where to start, all i have for wedding is the old dovecraft wedding paper pack, i just about managed a decent enough card in the end lol, hope you both liked it elke lol,
ive made this card also to fit a few challenges;
  1. Allsorts - love (needed to use a large heart on the project)
  2. Creative inspirations - something in your stash you have had for ages, (my dovecraft papers)
  3. Creatalicious challenges - something 3d (the roses and the handmade tag)
  4. Papertake - in the garden ( flowers)

I made this card for my bro in law, its actually a bit of a joke as he is no way a sports guy in fact he hates footy, but he has a dry sense of humour the same as me an thought it would be really funny, he agreed and we had a laugh when he opened it lol,
i followed 2 challenges for this card;
  1. cupcake - world cup wonders
  2. fab n funky - get in shape

the recipe for this card is as follows;

  • papers are from forever friends for him selection

  • faux stitching done with sakura
  • sentiment stamp was from a local craft fayre so not sure of brand,
