Love Birds

A worship leader we know is celebrating his 27th wedding anniversary with his wife in a few days. I saw his post on face book and decided to whip up a card. I searched for inspiration and found it at She Stamps (thanks, Cheryl!). I gave myself 15 minutes...then set the timer for 15 more minutes...then went a bit past that. So much for 15 minutes. I think if my office were more organized I could've done it in about half the time! I'm working on it. Progress, not perfection.

I used paper I had on hand, the Owl Punch and Scalloped Oval punches from Stampin' Up, the Journey and Ashlyn's alphabet Cricut Cartidges.  I made a little "oopsie" at the bottom. I wrote in my nicest handwriting, "A Chord of thee strands is not easily broken." Notice I wrote "thee" instead of "three." There was no way to squeeze the R in there. Then I remembered I had this gorgeous chantilly crocheted trim in my stash! I used sticky strip to lay down the satin ribbon to cover up my oopsie. I would have preferred to use Chocolate Chip, but I was out. I think the black works ok with the crocheted trim over the top. Another  layer of sticky strip (where would I be without this indispensable tool!?) went on over that, followed by the lace. My friend Michelle taught me this fold over technique & I use it every chance I get. It's a fun, easy way to add some flair. I'm all about fun and easy!
