PTI Customer Pick 2010





This weekend marks the beginning of Papertrey Ink's anniversary bash! I am so excited to show off my favorite card of 2010! And, fitting for the occasion, this was the anniversary card I made for my wonderful husband this past June. Here is the original blog post. Here and here are some other anniversary cards I made for him (with REALLY sappy write ups!!) if you are interested. But be kind, one of those was in the days when I scanned my cards instead of photographing them!

Anyway, this card is made with Scarlet Jewel base and Shimmer White mat. I embossed the Shimmer cs (my fave thing to do with it besides stamp on it!), then matted a smaller piece for stamping the sentiment. I punched out holes to run sheer white ribbon through and the card was done.

It took me awhile to figure out his perfect card, but it came together perfectly. For PTI's anniversary pick... it was an easy choice. Happy Anniversary PTI!!

Enjoy!

Silly me, just learned about shimmer card stock. It looks wonderful embossed and easy to stamp on. I wouldn't have thought that. Your card is stunning.
