Happy Anniversary - Card and Shoes

Hi!  Once again, I'm creating shoes :)   The same Etsy customer that ordered the shoes in my previous post, ordered this matching Anniversary card and paper crafted shoes set.  She tells me that the color theme for the Anniversary cake is white with black accents.  From the description she gave me it sounds like it will be rather elegant.  So...I tried to go elegant with the card and shoes.  I hope I succeeded!

I went browsing for sketch challenges this morning.  And, of course, found just what I needed at Card Patterns Sketch 167.  Take a look.

This is what I created.

I was browsing the sheets of patterned papers at Hobby Lobby yesterday (50% off!) and found this pretty embossed white paper.  Just right for an Anniversary card, don't you think?

Thanks so much for taking a look today!  I'll list my supplies below.

card stock: white (PTI), basic black (SU)
ink: onyx black (Versafine)
patterned/embossed paper: medallion (The Paper Studio)
stamps: beautiful butterflies (PTI)
other: black braided trim (Hobby Lobby), silver beads (Recollections)


  1. Oh yes, extremely elegant! So beautiful, both the shoes and the card. Love that embossed paper. I have some of that, but not sure yet how I'm going to use it.

  2. Wow! Gorgeous shoes and card! So very elegant and lovely! The embossed paper is the perfect touch! Have a wonderful weekend, take care!!:-))

  3. Oh my, to say that you have succeeded is an understatement. I think you have surpassed the customer's expectations! You have such beautiful craftsmanship, Susie! I love the card and shoes! The layering on the card is FABULOUS (Great buy over Hobby Lobby)!

  4. Beautiful card!! Love that embossed paper. Thanks for joining us at Cardpatterns

  5. Very nice and beautiful card and I love its mambo colors of the cards. You have such a very beautiful craftsmanship and I love the shoes.
