A special anniversary card deserves to have an extra special touch by adding layers and dimension in a big way!
Today I wanted to share with you a bit about how I created this card for my sister and brother-in-law for their 60th Anniversary. Even though we couldn’t be there to celebrate, I wanted it to be a big beautiful card that let them know that we send them all our love and best wishes.
Details behind the Anniversary Card
When making a larger and more involved card like this one, I love creating it with lots of dimensions. 3D Foam Squares are great for embellishments but what about when you want to raise up a large matted piece? The answer is Crafty Foam Tape. It’s perfect for the task and so easy to use. Simply cut your pieces to the exact size you need. In this case, I used it to raise up the entire brown piece of cardstock that I built the rest of the card on.
As I put together the rest of the card, I used my 3D Foam Squares White, Small to lift up the smaller pieces like the butterflies. I used Crafty Power Tape 81″ Dispenser to adhere the vintage lace. Varied sizes of Adhesive Dots were used to secure the other embellishments. The general adhesive I used on this card was E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser.
When they receive it, I know they will see a lot of love and thought went into creating it. Having the right adhesive makes creating that much more enjoyable.
Thank you for stopping by!
