Ardyth Inspired Anniversary Cards


Pat's boss messaged me on Facebook over the weekend and asked me if I'd make a card for his wife. It's their 25th wedding anniversary this weekend.  He's an architect so I thought he'd like something a bit more graphic for Ann versus flowery.  I made two cards...here's hoping he likes one of them. They both have a sentiment in the inside.  Normally the inside of my cards are blank, but I added sentiments inside since that's what he'd get if he went to the store :)

Also thinking graphically, I went to Ardyth's blog and pinterest board to be inspired. This card and this card were the two that inspired me most.   Have a favorite of the two cards?

  1. such a good idea to go to Ardyth's blog for ideas on a graphic card. These are very cool graphic cards-the first I like the sparkle heart but the second is my fav-love the 2 rings idea and more clean and crisp look of the card x

  2. It's so funny, as your post came up in my reader, I felt immediately 'at home'! Love them both, but the second one may be edging ahead - I love the two rings and that they're not gold and I love the sparkle peeking out! So glad I could 'help' in this endeavour! lol!

  3. OH they are both lovely Lynn! I can definitely see the Ardyth influence in both designs! I think I'm liking the second one just a tiny bit more. The double rings are nice!

  4. Both are perfect for a 25th and for an architect! Just the right amount of sparkle, card number two might be my fav! ;)

  7. How stunning these are and great to see that you can make such graphical cards! Love the first one better, just for the texture that fist to an architect... Hugs, Gerrina

  10. These are fab, Lynn! They are both gorgeous - I love the two rings but personally think the first one just edges it. You can't go wrong with a sparkly heart :)
