Happy Anniversary background

Two of my dearest friends are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary this month.  Congratulations Karen and James!  They are such a wonderful couple.

For their card, I used a Stampendous flour colored with watercolors.  I added a little silver Liquid Pearls in the center to go with the lattice background embossed in silver.

For the card base, I stamped "Happy Anniversary" over and over to create the look of a background stamp.  It works nicely when you get so carried away with everything you forget to leave room for a greeting.  :-)

Thanks for visiting today!  This week I have both a card video and a scrapbook with sketch video coming up.


  1. Thank you, Lisa, for the beautiful card. You've given me some new creative ideas for my own cards. I know, of course, that stamps can be repeated to make a background, BUT I never do it! Think I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for posting.

  2. Lisa, those classes you have taken have totally enhanced your great skill! Love this card! That you watercolored and silver embossed too!!! Wow amazing card :) Can you tell me where you got the notebook base you featured last week with the lines on one side and graph paper on the other side? Thanks! Kathi
