It was our Wedding Anniversary this week and this is the card I made for The Doc. Still in Joy Fold Mold as I really do like making these cards and you can really go to town on them. I have gone overboard with the belly band closure and made it the central focus of the card. The heart shape is a John Next Door die from his Heart collection set. The little heart is from the sentiment used inside. Happy Anniversary is from Tonic Studios. All the papers were from various design paper books in my stash and as The Doc likes green I just pulled out papers willy nilly to compliment one another.
Here is the card minus the belly band and left quite plain as the fun part is on the inside.
When we visit our friends down in Suffolk we stay at a B & B which is out in the middle of nowhere with not much traffic on the roads and quiet apart from the Hares that run amok most nights in the very large garden and the adjacent farmers fields. This stamp reminded me of them and is by Craft Consortium from their WildMeadow set. I had a go at doing reverse image stamping and did these two hares in gold embossing powder. Not too bad for a first attempt. The one on the left (which is the reverse) has come out a bit fainter but I just think it makes it look the like the female version of the two. The little red heart is from the insert on the sentiment which I die cut in red in order to be able to use. The gold one is what I used on the Big Heart.
The sentiment is by sizzix 660825 and cut from gold card to match the sentiment on the belly band .
Your card is amazing! Congrats to the happy couple!!

Another great use of this style of card and a some lovely papers and like the way you have done the hares.
Thank for your comment, we were April and while it was fine it was very windy, had to abandon the photographs outside as either my veil ws flying in the air or my dress was and it was a straight one. We had our 50th this year. Have a lovely weekend.
so sweet cards Valerie , congrats for you
happy weekend :)
hugs and good vibes

A belated Happy Anniversary wish. Brilliant card and there certainly won't be another the same on your mantelpiece!
Playing holiday catch up so just popping round to take a peek at your latest creation, lovely colours for a masculine card.
Oh my goodness--what an amazing card, Mrs A! Bet the Doc loved it! I've gotta get one made for hubby as we celebrate 40 yrs in about 3 weeks. I can tell you it won't be anything like this--way out of my zone!
Wishing you a belated Happy Anniversary! Fabulous card, love the papers and the way you've decorated the inside too. The belly band is super. I need to make my hubby an anniversary card for next month as it will be our 45th Anniversary. I did drop some hints that the 45th is Sapphire! LOL! xx
