It was our tenth anniversary yesterday and this is the card I made for my wonderful husband, Darren.
Its not a traditional anniversary card, not a heart in sight! It was the sentiment 'Never Forget I Love You' that came with the fab Sheena, A taste of India set of stamps which made me decide this was the card to make. The black stamping is Versafine embossed with clear powder. The elephant and leaves are coloured with Promarkers and its head gear and blanket are painted with matching Distress Inks to the background. The background piece of card has been inked then a Taste of India embossing folder inked with Encore Metallic Gold Ink on the flatter side then the card embossed through the Cuttlebug then heat embossed with Gold detail powder. The numbers and letters are by Clarity and the stones are from my stash. I have also added gold Gilding Wax around the edges. Distress Inks used are Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Fired Brick and Picked Raspberry. My photo is not very good - the card looks more vibrant and the stones, gold embossing and wax all shine.
