As previously mentioned, the bestest parents in the world had their 27th wedding anniversary last week. I went back and forth on the idea and colors of what to do for the card. Thought about purple since it's one of my mom's fave colors, but then I thought it wasn't just about my mom, it's about my dad too... But I didn't want it to be too masculine either.
So flipping through all my papers, I came across the green damask ish pattern and it just clicked.
Earlier in the week I actually went lookin around for anniversary stamps since surprisingly, I didn't have any yet. Everything was birthday or baby inspired. Luckily, I found something simple and to the point. I feel like it fit perfect with this card. You can't really see it but "Happy Anniversary" is embossed in white with silver glitter.
Then came the insert... I actually cut to size a green distressed pattern for the inside of the card, but when I flipped it over to put stick'ums on it, I discovered I really really liked the pattern on the other side. And even though it had a lot of blue in it, the pattern still went really well.
I edged the card with a chocolate brown ink to connect it with all the colors on the front. On the card I sent my parents, the leaf pattern actually kinda framed the top and left side which left a big open space on the bottom right for a message.
Growing up I didn't understand a lot of the things that my parents said and did. But now that I am an adult and married, it all makes sense. My parents have been such an amazing example of sacrificial love with each other and with the rest of the family. And I am so appreciative of everything they have done for me and that they have made me into the person that I am today. Love you Mom and Dad!!!! Happy Anniversary! Hope you liked your card ;]
