Love & Marriage...

Welcome back to another Papertrey Ink countdown group post! Today we are highlighting a new stamp set called Love & Marriage, which will be available on the 15th.

Not only is this set great for wedding cards and Valentine's Day cards, but also for anniversaries. My goal with today's post is to show you several anniversary card ideas!

This card has the quote from Love & Marriage and the arrows from Tag-its #11. I stamped the arrows in Lavender Moon ink, so pretty in real life, but hard to photograph! The heart is stamped in Smokey Shadow and is from the new Tag-its #11 set also. I punched 2 holes in the heart to hang it like a banner from the twine.
Originally I was going to have the lacy Filgree border at the top of the card, but then I decided to have my Filigree Border on the bottom. The problem I created was that I had already sewn a Heart border on over the top of the Filigree, which meant that my heart border was now upside down! I didn't want to start my card over, so I folded the hearts down to create an interesting lacy, dimensional border! (see below)
 Together Forever Anniversary card:
Stamps: Love & Marriage, Tag-its #11
Ink: Smokey Shadow, Lavender Moon
Paper: Studio Calico (blue), white cardstock, Pink Paislee (text)
Dies: Filigree Border, Heart Border, 2" circle punch
Other: Smokey Shadow button, True Black ribbon, Sweet Blush ribbon, PTI twine. 
-------------

On this card, I simply stamped the heart people on the background, then added the sayings, red heart, and postmark from the Love & Marriage set. Cardstock is Sweet Blush.
You and Me card:
Stamps: Love & Marriage
Ink: Sweet Blush, Pure Poppy, True Black, Smokey Shadow
Paper: white and Sweet Blush cardstock
Dies: none
Other: corner rounder.
-------------

And last, I stamped the saying and hearts from Love & Marriage onto Pink Paislee's Vintage Vogue Tailered Suit paper. You could also use Papertrey Ink's Text Style Backgrounds for a similar look!

The tree is stamped onto vintage book paper with Pure Poppy and True Black ink. The tree stamps and die are from the new Tree Tops set! I used Aqua Mist ink to stamp the frames under the patterned paper, which are from the new Happy Day stamp set.

Two Hearts card:
Stamps: Love & Marriage, Tree Tops, Happy Day
Ink: True Black, Pure Poppy, Sweet Blush
Paper: Pink Paislee, white cardstock
Dies: Tree Tops
Other: Basic Grey brad, vintage book paper.
------------

On all of these cards, all you have to do is write "Happy Anniversary" on the inside of the card to turn them into anniversary cards. Perfect for your spouse, parents, aunt and uncles' anniversaries, etc. Stop over to see more "Love & Marriage" projects by the Papertrey Ink team!

I like both of your cards! The sentiment on the Tag It's heart is waaaay neat. Love the folded hearts above the filagree border. And that little bit of stitching is a great added element. Your You and Me card is very nice, too. I like the background. That stamp can create an illusion, love it. Love the phone book bkgd paper and the tree and the awesome sentiment font on your Two Hearts card. SUPER sample cards! :)

You really gave me a nice hint to our upcoming 4th anniversary. I am planning to make an anniversary card but I got confused on how to do the design. Thank God I found your blog. It's indeed a great help!
