A Perfect Pair


Celebrate! Karen and Gabe are doing just that. Today will mark 44 years of marriage and this is the card that I made for them. Another playing card recycling project -- this will be No. 4. If I play my cards right, perhaps I can conjure up some more card tricks. See post below for No. 3 - Gogh have a Great Birthday that contains links for No. 2 Drama Queen, and No. 1 King for a Day. The red heart is a Sizzix die cut, cuttlebug embossed. The background paper is stamped with an All Night Media "tapestry" and gold embossed; the King and Queen of Hearts are inserted into the printed paper pocket with foam mounts. The paper fasteners were added -- because they were, after all, "paper fasteners." LOL . I hope my friends Karen and Gabe receive the royal treatment today.

Great anniversary card! They are going to love it. The red heart and ribbon tie it all together. Very creative.
