Anniversary Cards


Recently my family attend a double anniversary party. 30 years for my neighbors and 60 years for their parents! It was a cards only/no gifts party so I made up these two cards. The size is larger than a regular card and I added a ton of glitter, even to the envelope. My cards had the most decorated and shiniest envelopes of all!! I know that you all can appreciate that proud moment in my life.....whereas everyone else would be like *big deal, Michelle!* I know you know what I mean cuz we stampers fall from the tree right?

Well anyway, it's SOGGY here in Kansas with a capital SOG!!! My garden is half washed away and the timber behind our house is totally flooded. Plus my plants that I just got done planting are under water, poor little sprouts! Sooo, I'm staying indoors and stamping! I have some teacher friends coming over after school on Tuesday and I need GOODS for them to look at! I must mass produce lickity split! So I'm off girls! Have a great week and I hope you get to stamp!!

Tip of the day: If you need to give a card for a really special occasion, line the inside of the card with white or vanilla cardstock. This makes the card look very polished and professional, and provides a crisp writing surface.

These are extra ordinary. Right to the envelopes. What paper did you use? It is beautiful but the stamping is the best.

Fabulous cards, as always!!! How did they word the no gifts, cards only detail on the invite? We are throwing a 50th Wedding Anniversary party for my inlaws, and would love to know how they worded that.

Thanks!
