Hey, Officer...

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Hi there! I've got a really quick post for you today. A friend who likes to incorporate the traditional and modern anniversary gifts in her husband's gift and card has asked me to make her card for the past 3 years, here: 9th anniversary, 10th anniversary, 11th anniversary. This is her 12th anniversary, and the gifts for this one are linen, silk, and pearls. A tough one! 
Her husband is in law enforcement, and she loved this image from The Stamping Chef for her card for him this year. ;) I colored it up with Copics, added silver Stickles to the belt. For the "gifts," I used a linen textured card base, sewed the sides of the striped designer paper with red silk thread, and used silver flat pearls as embellishments on the banner as well as a small one on her hat. I printed the sentiment using Word.
I left the inside blank so she could add a personal message. ;) I hope she likes it!

Thanks for stopping by, and, Hey!...Enjoy the rest of your week! 8~D

I bet he'll take this to work and tack it up on his wall! Well, maybe inside his locker, what with the workplace rules these days. Pretty racy, and I know he'll love the heck out of it. Great job working all those traditional elements into the design. Fabulous card, Cheryl!
