Happy Ruby Wedding Anniversary

Today I'm wishing my awesome little brother and sister-in-law a very very happy Ruby Wedding Anniversary.   I'm very pleased to be able to share in the celebrations with them and all the family.

Here's the card I made for them

I wanted to use a different style of image for the card and I just love this Crafty Individuals 'Winning Hare' stamp which I thought was perfect for my design.

I stamped the image twice, one using SU! Raspberry Ripple ink and the other using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I then fussy cut just the hares from the black version and attached over the top of the red layer.  I added a few tiny spots of red Stickles on the hares to add a bit of bling and Plantinum Stickles around the whole outside edge of the image panel

Here's a close up shot

The background was created using SU! Raspberry Ripple and Strawberry Slush inks applied using a sponge, then a few splashes of water to create a mottled appearance.  I then stamped the tiny hearts on the background using the Raspberry Ripple ink.

Using a Tattered Lace magazine freebie border die I cut out the pretty strips at the sides from red mirror card.

For the section at the top I used the Spellbinders Arched Elegance Pocket die and cut this out of white card.  I then placed a piece of the red mirror card behind the pocket - which I actually attached upside down as I thought it looked like curtains on a stage.  I wanted the happy couple to appear to be set centre stage on the card.  I then added the number 40 diecut using numbers from a Memory Box die set and a scrap of the red mirror card.

Finally I attached red heart shaped gems down the sides and on the 'curtains' to tie in the red and hearts elements.

Here's a view of the decorated inside of the card

This beautiful sentiment is by Chapel Road Art Stamps, which I stamped in black, fussy cut out and then used the same two SU! inks used to create the backgrounds on both the front and the inside to add colour around the edges.  The sentiment panel was then attached to the inside of the card.  I left an area fairly clear of inks to allow room for the personal sentiments to been hand written.

I do hope you've enjoyed seeing today's project, think of me partying away with the family and have lots of fun !
