Wedding Anniversary Cards

Size: 5" x 7" on white blank card
Largest pattern paper size: 4" x 6"
Color palette: kraft paper brown, gray, muted coral-red, corn yellow, and more minor accent colors

Technique on cardstock: distressed edging using scissors blade to rough up

The inside sentiment strip says "Happy 30th Anniversary!!"

Here is a  2nd wedding anniversary card made with some of the same papers but with some different embellishments (letter initial stickers) & techniques (dotted borders & arrow):

The raised dotted surface of the initial letters plus the polka-dotted grayish-brown heart cardstock, I felt needed to be repeated in the left side of the card. So I used a fine point black Sharpie to add dot borders around the 2 sentiment tags and the arrow . And due to the quality of the phone camera, the creamy yellow 4" x 6" cardstock gets lost in the photograph. In person it looked so much better fortunately.

For card #2, the inside sentiment strip says "Happy Anniversary!"

These cards were made June 3. The next post will be 2 recent endeavors for church and then I will backtrack to some birthday cards made about 8-12 days ago or so for my sister and niece.
