The wandering thoughts of a senior citizen who loves to make greeting cards.

I've been making personal cards and didn't want to post them until they are in the hands of the recipient. This is an anniversary card I made for a very special couple in my life.
The hedgehogs are an old stamp by Penny Black. I stamped and embossed on watercolor paper, then added color with my Peerless watercolors. The sentiment is from Art Impressions, with hearts added with a Pearl Pen. The frame and ribbon slide are from pearlescent paper. I had a lot of problems getting any adhesive to hold the watercolor paper to the pearlescent paper. Then the ribbon slide wouldn't stick to the ribbon. I used Miracle tape, which didn't hold. I used dimensional foam tape, which didn't hold. Finally, I drizzled some Glossy Accents under the ribbon slide and held it in place until dry. When mailed, it appeared to be holding together. The little hearts are stickers.
