CC227 & SC237 -- Anniversary card



Hello everyone~
Today my hubby & I are celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary. Unfortunately he is in Mississippi right now. After 16 years of Military life, we get used to celebrating the special days over the phone, lol. The difference between 14 years ago and now is that our relationship is stronger and I make an anniversary card instead of buying one, lol.

皆さん、こんにちは~
今日は、私と夫の14回目の結婚記念日です。残念ながら、彼は今出張中で家に居ないので、一緒にお祝いはできませんが、16年間のミリタリー生活を経験してきたので、こういうスペシャルな日を、電話でお祝いするのは慣れっこです(笑)この14年で変わったことといえば、絆が14年前よりも深まったことと、アニバーサリーのカードを買うのではなく、自分で作るようになったことかな(笑)

I used the sketch from SCS Sketch challenge 237 (SC237). Since I didn't do Color Combination chalenge 227 (CC227) yesterday, I decided to throw it into the challenge. I'm glad I did. They are very elegant and beautiful colors.
The heart and border were stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with PEARL embossing powder by Kodomo No Kao. I LOVE the look of pearl and I totally reccomend the quality of the powder. Wish I got the different colors while I was in Japan...

今回のカードは、SCSのスケッチチャレンジ237(SC237)のスケッチを使っています。昨日のカラーコンビネーションチャレンジ227(CC227)を、未だしていなかったので、このチャレンジと一緒に使いました。とてもエレガントで素敵な色あわせだったので、取り入れて良かったです。
ハートとボーダーは、ヴァーサマークでスタンプをした後、こどものかおのパールエンボスパウダーを使って、ヒートエンボスしました。パールの仕上がりがとても綺麗で、パウダーもとても質が良いのでお勧めです!!日本に居る間に、他の色もゲットしておけば良かった。。。(悔)



OK, back to my card...I dabbed purple and yellow colors with sponge dauber over the embossed images and some gray for around the heart. I stamped other images randomly on the heart mat. I decided to layer the same heart image over the original one with the dimensional adhesives at the last minutes. I think it made the heart stand out more.

話をカードに戻します。エンボスしたイメージに紫と黄色をスポンジダウバーを使いながら暈し、灰色も少しだけハートの周りに暈しました。その後、ハートのパネルに、他のイメージをランダムに捺しています。最後に、同じハートのイメージを、元のハートの位置にフォームステッカーを使って、重ねて貼ったことによって、ハートが全体からスタンドアウトした感じになりました。


Stamps: Ever After, Hugs & Wishes, Bella's Border (SU)
Paper: barely banana, basic black, basic gray, almost amethyst dp (SU) white cardstock (Strathmore)
Ink: VersaMark, Memento tuxedo black (Tsukineko), lavender lace, barely banana, basic gray (SU)
Accessories: ribbon (SU), pearls (Michael's), embossing powder (Kodomo No Kao)

Tools: Nestabilities (Spellbinders), piercing tool



Thank you for stopping by today.

Happy Anniversary Maki. I know what you mean. My hubby was in the Air Force for 26 years, 10 of which we were married. So I know what you mean. There were quite a few holiday/special days that he was away, but as you've said it makes you stronger. All right, let me get to your card. It is absolutely GORGEOUS, Maki. I hope that when your hubby gets back you'll be able to have some quality time to celebrate :D:D.
Hugs, Sabrina
