Anniversary Card with a repurposed card focal

Square card base with decorative bracket style edge

Color palette inspiration is the repurposed card used as the focal embellishment

This anniversary card is for my brother and sister-in-law. I think it is their "golden" 23rd for July 23rd. I've always got to figure it out because I got married 1 1/2 years afterwards. So Joe and I are at 21 1/2 years, so yes, this should be their 23rd for the 23rd. But no numbers found on this card. I kept it pretty and floral.

The bridesmaids' dresses were an off-white/beige background with lots of pinks and pastel green flowers fabric, so when I came across this recycled card front in my supply stash, I wanted to use it as the inspiration for their card.

The micro size decorative tapes were found at a Dollar Tree store!!! I couldn't pass them up and it gets even better--the package has like 7 small rolls for $1!!! Yes!!! Yahoo!!! Unbelievable! One has multi-colored hearts so that was perfect for this anniversary card.

The card focal center is a wishing well scene. Of course,  we wish them well.

The inside is a lovely cardstock with pink background and white flowers. I kept it simple with a small sentiment "Best wishes" stamped inside.

With the beautiful front filled with those subtle messages of hearts and wishing well, I didn't want to overdue it with too much stamping. I hope they like it and know that it was made out of love for them.

Busy crafting in the heartland,


  1. Hi Becca! Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog. I'm glad to know the work to post is appreciated!

    It looks like you got a great buy on those decorative tapes from the dollar store - and those hearts go so nicely with the focal! I'm sure they'll appreciate the time and effort you put into making a card for them.
