Card Makeover


Hello everyone.  I trust this finds you well.  I have been so crazy busy that I haven't really taken the time to craft lately.  That means that I'm really far behind.  My brother and sister-in-law's anniversary was last week and I didn't have time to make a card.  So this is what I did to still give them a little something special.

I started by going into my card stash and discovered that I didn't have any anniversary cards made up.  However, I found this adorable wedding card that my friend Crystal made. ** Last year we had a card exchange club where each month we would pick a different theme and make around 8 cards.  Then we would exchange them between us.  It was great.  Not only did we receive great inspiration from each other, but we increased our card stashes.  Those cards have saved my bacon on more than one occasion.**

The next step was to figure out how to turn this wedding card into an anniversary card.  I grabbed my "All in the Family" stamp set from K. Andrew Designs, my ATG, and a couple of brads from Basic Grey and went to work.  In just a few minutes, I had an anniversary card.  How great is that?  Be sure to watch the video to see the before of Crystal's cute wedding card as well as how I made it into an anniversary card.



Thanks for stopping by.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.

I really like the original card as well as your changes. I don't have much in the way of wedding stamps or Cricut cartridges, but I DO have hearts! I couldn't tell for sure from the video, was the "bride" heart just white cardstock? The "groom" heart looked like it had a little grey, perhaps? FTS!

The bride was white. The groom was white with a black top.
