Ink Blended Anniversary Card

Hi, everyone! Tomorrow is my seven year wedding anniversary and I needed a "no frills" and "not girly" anniversary card for my husband. I grabbed the Happily Ever After stamp set from The Rabbit Hole Designs and made him a simple card. 






Our wedding colors were sunflower yellow and chocolate chip brown, so I thought I would make a card playing off of those colors. I started by blending some Fossilized Amber Distress Ink onto the left side of a panel of cardstock and blended that into Mustard Seed Distress Ink. I knew I would be making a peek through card, so I didn't need to blend the whole panel, just a a little strip. I added some of the hearts from the Happily Ever After stamp set with white heat embossing over the ink and colored them in with clear water. This gives them a bleached effect. It's subtle, but just enough! Then I took a second piece of cardstock and chopped out a diagonal portion of the cardstock and mounted it on top of my inked panel with some fun foam. I stamped a simple sentiment from the Happily Ever After stamp set to finish it off!






Whether or not my husband will realize that this card was based off of our wedding colors remains to be seen! Haha! Thanks for joining me for this simple wedding card!
