Hearts 1st Wedding Anniversary Card

Last year my friend Kath asked me to make a wedding card that she could give to her son and his partner and here is the card I made.  This year Kath has asked for a 1st Wedding Anniversary card for David and Marie.  I knew I wanted to keep to red, white and gold and to have a hearts theme.  Huge thanks to my very kind SU! upline Joanne who lent me her I Heart Hearts stamp set.  Lots of lovely hearts to play with in that set!

I made a Cherry Cobbler 5 3/4" card base and the mat layers were made with Whisper White CS and Champagne Glimmer Paper.  I generated the sentiment on the computer using the Nuptial BT font and the RGB colour code for Cherry Cobbler.  Before attaching the layers to the card I added some Cherry Cobbler dotted ribbon.  I stamped all the hearts in Cherry Cobbler ink and cut them out.  I popped three of the hearts up on Dimensionals and added a few jewels. 

I cut a Whisper White panel for inside the card, stamped the sentiment "Wishing you lots of everything wonderful" and added two gold glitter punched hearts.  I then stamped two champagne glasses in gold pigment ink and heat embossed with Jeweled Gold powder - ooooh, very sparkly!  I stamped one glass direct to the panel and stamped another on a separate piece of CS, cut it out and popped it up.  I added a Cherry Cobbler punched heart and a few jewels.  I found some square gold envelopes in my stash recently and I thought this occasion warranted a posh envelope!  Punched shapes from the SU! Heart to Heart punch were adhered to a white circle which was layered onto a larger Cherry Cobbler circle.  Kath said the card was lovely and I hope the happy couple like it too!
