Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Pink, Yellow and Green HOTP Anniversary

This card was based on one of the designs shown in the HOTP Ultimate Floral Cardmaker's Creative Pack. For that reason, I won't be entering it into any challenges, but will post it 'for fun'.

This is the card that I made for my dad and his wife for their wedding anniversary.

Firstly, the front of the card blank was covered using panels of green and yellow papers from the HOTP Ultimate Floral Cardmaker's Creative Pack. A swirl, from the HOTP Christmas Swirls stamp set, was stamped at the bottom of the yellow panel using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink.

The 'Happy Anniversary' stamp from Stamps Away was stamped onto a strip of pink paper also from the Ultimate Floral paper pack and adhered onto a strip of the green polka dot paper.

A length of pink picot-edge ribbon from the Chatterbox Rosey ribbon pack was attached along a length of the pink paper and attached along the card front with a knot of the pink ribbon adhered on to it.

Three circles were cut from scrap card using Nestabilities and covered with the yellow weave patterned paper. Rub-ons from the HOTP Words, Hearts and Flowers rub-on sheet were added to the circles and attached to the left of the panel.

I also decorated the inside of the card, using small pieces of the matching papers from the front of the card. The green polka dot paper was stamped using the dot border stamp from the HOTP Stitches stamp set and one of the swirls from the HOTP Christmas Swirls stamp set.

The 'Warm Wishes' stamp, from the HOTP Sentiments stamp set, was stamped and the dot border stamped below it using the Onyx Black ink, and cut out and matted onto the patterned paper.

A small loop of the pink ribbon was attached behind the yellow panel of paper before attached to the card.
