6 Month Anniversary Card

Here is a card that I made for my husband on our 6 month anniversary!  We've been reading through 1 John in the mornings, so I thought it would be appropriate to quote for the occasion.  I am STILL using up the brown cardstock from our wedding invites!  The corner punch is courtesy of my MIL, the patterned paper and olive ink from my mom's stash, and the white paper and brass brads from my friend's stash.  The stamps are mine.  The sources are the same throughout the card.

I placed some colored paper on the next page and I just wanted you to see the effect it has with the corner punch.  :)

The only thing I don't like about brads is that they go through the paper so you have to cover them up.  It makes things kind of lumpy!  This page is a classic case of not measuring correctly...  I kind of like to just eyeball things, but it didn't work out here as the rest of the text is squished.

On this page I tried out my new corner stamp!  I really like how it lets the color of the paper underneath blend in.  However, it wasn't the easiest to line up when punching, which is odd because it's a corner stamp.  Hopefully it was just my error and I'll get better at it!

We're going to Earls tonight with a gift card from my parents - yum!  Take care!  JEM
