Je T'aime- Happy Anniversary!
This week my husband and I celebrate our wedding anniversary and I thought the CQC222 ColourQ Challenge colors would be perfect for a card with a masculine vintage feel.
My husband and I love to go "antiquing" and on our honeymoon, found our first antique honey dish. Once of the criterias for our collecting the honey dishes has been that they have to have a bee image, beehive or the square honeycomb shape so when I found this paper from Graphic 45 with a few bee images, I thought it would be perfect for our anniversary card.
Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to stop by the ColourQ site and check out all of the designs- such inspiration!!
To create this card:
Stamp the images from Off the Grid, Gorgeous Grunge and Established Elegance using Basic Gray Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Stamp the bee image from Nature’s Pace using Basic Black Classic Ink, color using Stampin’ Write markers (Sahara Sand and Smoky Slate) and create a few gold highlights with the Stampin’ Dazzle Gold Marker and white highlights with the Chalk Marker. Sponge a bit of Crumb Cake Classic Ink to distress the paper a bit
Trim the image and mount onto a piece of Gold Metallic paper and again onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. Add a few scraps of Gold Metallic paper to the sides and mount the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add the sentiment banner and chipboard accent to finish off the card.
