All My Love Anniversary Card

Hello, my beautiful friends! Heartfelt thanks (and hugs) for the sweet messages during this tough stretch! I am so grateful for you. I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, showcasing Pion's gorgeous To my Valentine.

My parents are soon celebrating their 53rd wedding anniversary and this is for the lovey-dovey occasion. ♥︎
Although a surprise trip to Paris is out of the question, at least I can create a bit of Parisian romance with pretty papers and embellishments from LLC. The La-La Land Crafts Eiffel Tower is sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage and adorned with wedding-white butterflies from Maja's Coffee in the Arbour. The top of the card is bordered with Joy! Crafts Butterfly Edge.
Coco lace is lined with Double Row Pearl Trim for extra elegance and topped with a floofy bow and frantage'd Clay Heart. The flowers are dusted with Glamour Dust and accented with a Crown Sphere Pearl Pin. Magnolia Heart Flourishes scroll within.
The JustRite Stamps sentiment is stamped atop a sheet from Maja's Home for the Holidays, as the delightful hearts pair beautifully with this collection. It is cut out with a Spellbinders Lacey Pennant. The resin corner detailing is from the Melissa Frances Garnish Appliqué set.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful weekend.♥︎

  1. 53; that's amazing! I was fortunate to celebrate my parents' 40th Wedding Anniversary while they were staying with us last week. I didn't manage to make a card for them then, but I'll get on with it as soon as I can, and I definitely have the best collection for a Ruby Wedding anniversary to use. ;-) Your card is beautiful; I love this Eiffel tower die that I've seen you use now a couple of times.

    Have a great weekend!
