Happy Anniversary Dear

I really wanted to use the Tres Chic Background stamp for my anniversary card. The plan wasn't to make it this simplistic, but for my hubby simple and non-frilly was my best bet. Quick card to kreate as well, definitely under 15 minutes. My card base is Whisper White and I layered a piece of Basic Black on top. The top layer is my Tres Chic background stamp inked in Whisper White and stamped onto a piece of Brushed Silver paper. I then covered the paper except for the word love and as carefully as possible sprinkled a reddish non-SU embossing powder over my word. Then to accent it a bit more, I used the circle piece from my Hodgepodge Hardware. I played with a few other embellishments, but kept coming back to the 'plain Jane model'. The Brushed Silver paper gives it enough pizazz, too much more and I would be overstepping the 'masculine boundaries' :) Ah well, I can't complain, pretty easy and quick and I know he won't complain either! LOL

For now, go kreate

Hi Kim! This is a gorgeous anniversary card for a guy! It's hard not to add all the frills, isn't it? Nice job!!!

Pretty and simple. You convinced me that I need the silver paper, too. Naughty, naughty! Hugs, M

I just bought the silver paper and hope to try the faux metal technique with it soon.
