Hello my crafty friends and Happy Thursday to you! For today's project I have a card I made for my sweet husband. On August 1st we celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary! My how time just flies. It seems like yesterday that we were starving students building a dream. We were both in college, me finishing my undergrad degree and he in his 2nd year at UC Davis Veterinary School of Medicine. Our wedding theme as unusual as it may seem was Lady & the Tramp. We had a very unconventional wedding. It was outside in beautiful Malibu, California, on my cousin's ranch. My dog even walked with me up the aisle, lol (it was not planned, it just happened). And now 16 wonderful years later, some things haven't changed... we are happy and blessed and I still have a sheltie at my heels :)
Here is my card...
I got this svg from SVG Cutting Files "Couples Blog Hop". It was my first blog hop and I was blown away with how amazing these SVG's that Ann makes are. Those ladies on the DT are amazing and in a class all their own when it comes to crafting. Needless to say I knew I would be using this particular cut!
Now, keep in mind I am pretty new to the SVG world and I still cut them on my Cricut with the SCAL2. This SVG was very challenging for me but I think I pulled it off! I fussed with it a lot to get it the way I wanted and even added a few layers that were not in the original SVG. I used Valentine patterned card stock from Recollections to really play on the "love" theme. The hearts and sentiment layers were cut from my Art Philosophy Cartridge. I used a few sentiment stamps and wrote the Lady and the Tramp by hand. I wish I had nicer writing!! The stamps are from Craftin Desert Divas, Docerela Stamps and My Pink Stamper. Of course, I needed to add some bling so I used some red heart shaped rhinestones.
My hubbie loved his card and we had a wonderful Anniversary weekend away in Las Vegas! Here are a few pics from our wedding. My sister decorated these figurines for our cake. I keep them in my curio.
