20 years…WOW!

Here is a Quick and Cost Effective card I recently created for my husband, for our 20th Wedding Anniversary.  Quick and Cost Effective is when I set a timer and use supplies that I have on had to make a card or gift tag.  For a more detailed explantion click here to view a previous post.


I started with a pre-scored blank card and dove deep into my stash.  The only current item used is the K&Company decorative tape, because that is just always on my table.

DSCN1071I used these old Making Memories black letter stickers, but wanted them to stand out a bit more.  I came up with the idea of painting them with some silver acrylic paint.  I am happy with the results and think it might be something to try out on a layout.  You never know what’s going to happen when you have to improvise!

Supplies:  Blank card:DCWV; Pattern papers, decorative tape: K&Company; Stickers: Making Memories; Acrylic paint: Liquitex; Pens: Zig, Gelly Roll, Adhesive: Herma, Ranger Collage glue stick.
