1st Anniversary Card - Made by Sair

1st Anniversary Card

April 28th 2013

Another card made for a first anniversary. I was a bridesmaid at the wedding so I pressed some petals from my bouquet and saved them to use in this card.

One difficulty in doing this was sticking the very delicate petals to the card. I used double sided tape for this. It worked reasonably well as it can’t bee seen through the petals however I was very close to tearing them. I tend to use double sided tape for my cards because it is less messy than glue and you dont have to wait for it to dry. Also some glues I have used in the past loose their stickiness and parts of the card fall off. I’ve found double sided tape is a lot more reliable. Also you can buy 3 for £1 in most bargain or pound shops.


The background for this card is Emma Bridgewater paper and I used gel stamps for the lettering.
