Happy 10th Wedding Anniversary (Tin / Aluminum)

Hi, guys! Hope all is well!  Today I am sharing a card I made for my friend Ruth.  She and her hubby are celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary and she asked if I could make Joe a special card.  She told me that this anniversary is the tin/aluminum anniversary, so I wanted to incorporate some metal elements.

Ruth loves to see how my cards are made, and I normally just share a picture of the card, with the exception of Wednesday when I take shots of my desk.  So today, I am sharing a few pics of my process to make Joe his card.

I used Ranger's metal sheets to make the hearts.  I love using these sheets as they look great but don't add bulk or weight to my cards. I used Tim Holtz Distress paint to paint the numbers 10 to turn them metallic.


I embossed the hearts and the metal sheet background paper using Tim Holtz embossing folders.  I used Distress Ink in Black Soot to tone down some of the shine.


Here is the final card!  I am very happy with the way it turned out, but more importantly, Ruth loved it!


I can't wait to hear if Joe likes it!  Wishing them both a very Happy Anniversary and many more years of happiness!!

Until next time!
