Happy Anniversary card

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!  This is Erika from www.EKittyscraps.blogspot.com.  I wanted to share with you the card I made for my Stepson's 1st Anniversary which is today.  The wedding colors were champagne and red so I used these colors in my card.

I actually cut this card from the Sweethearts cartridge at 5 inches using the card function key with the shift key on.  This card is located on page 70.  The cricut machine cut out the words "Happy Anniversary" from the card  so I used red paper that I glued onto the inside of the card.  (See below). 

 I cut the "1st" at one inch from the Artiste cartridge and glued to the front of the card.  I cut out the champagne glasses at 1.50 inches also on p. 70 of the Sweethearts cartridge.  Next I used my punch for the red heart and added silver bling. 

I added champagne flutes on the inside of the card and printed out my verse for the card on silver 8.5" cardstock.  I did originally print on vellum but liked the silver cardstock better. 

Here is the finished card with an added surprise-Graycie Kitty decided to pose with her pink tongue sticking out!  Lol!
What I liked about the Sweetheart cartridge is that it is so versatile for weddings, anniversaries or love themed projects.  This cartridge contains card, tag and envelope functions on every page in the booklet so you can make several projects in a short amount of time.  There are also many other cartridges with the card feature so you can stock up on cards.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good month!
