No frills anniversary card for a man using Stampin' Up washi tape

Every year I give my husband handmade anniversary cards and he accepts them with a smile but doesn't look closely because he's not really a handmade card kind of a guy! This year's card got rave reviews from him though and that made me smile as it literally took a few minutes to make! Come and see:

I used some of Stampin' Up's gorgeous washi tape and a snippet of left over designer paper to create a strong horizontal theme and embellished with a punched heart and some staples. The date of our marriage was stamped with my Day to Day Project Life photopolymer stamp set - what a useful set that has turned out to be!

My husband told me he loved the colours - and who wouldn't?! Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze are a wonderful rich combination perfect for this time of year.

Our anniversary celebrations were a little low-key this year because our youngest son wasn't well and we didn't want to leave him to go off jollying. Instead we got to spend an evening breathing in the glorious scent of these beauties...

... and if you were passing our house that evening you may have heard the pop of a champagne cork and the sound of clinking glasses. Twenty years of marriage definitely merits a glass of bubbles don't you think?!

See you tomorrow,


  1. Many congrats on your 20th Wedding Anniversary Vicky.

    Lovely flowers . . . I can smell them from here!

    I like your strong geometric lined masculine anniversary card too.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx
