Shauna’s Designer Tip: A simple silk flower stamped with French writing (the language of love!) catches the eye and captures the heart on this classic card. Before stamping, place the flower on scrap paper. If the stamp is smaller than the flower, position and restamp to cover the flower. Other stamp patterns that work well are dots and stripes.

1. Cover the card front with striped paper with the stripes going vertically. Trim the excess paper, then trim the card to 5” x 5 5/8”. Save the cut portions and ink the card edges.
2. Trim the black text paper to 5” x 5” and mat the top and bottom edges with red texture paper, trimmed to 1/16” and inked with black. Center on the card front.
3. Open the card and punch the primitive heart from the lower right corner of the card front. Save the punched heart for later.
4. Cover the inside back of the card with red texture paper and starting at the bottom, stamp the Old French Writing stamp twice with black ink and let dry.
5. Using leftover striped paper on cardstock from step #1, cut two 5” x 1/4” strips and ink edges with black. Glue one across the card front, 1 3/8” from the top of the card and one across the inside back of the card, 3/4” from the top of the card.
6. Stamp Old French Writing on the ivory flower with StazOn ink and allow to dry.
7. Thread a black button with ivory floss and tie. Adhere to the flower center using Glue Dots™. Attach the flower to the left side of the striped border using Glue Dots™.
8. Cut out the Classic sarapaper™ tag, punch a 1/8” hole in the top and thread with ivory floss. Tie and hang from the button in the flower center. Cut a square out of ivory texture, stamp the number with black ink and use a black pen to handwrite “years”. Glue to the tag and secure to the card with foam tape.
9. Cut a 2 1/8” x 3/8” strip of ivory texture and ink with black. Alternate upper and lower case stamps to spell “happy”. Stamp a small heart and color in with a red pen. Adhere across the punched heart on the card front using mini brads on either side to secure.
10. Glue the punched heart from step #3 to top right of striped border on the inside back of the card. Thread a small red button with ivory floss and adhere to the punched heart using Glue Dots™.
11. Cut a 3” x 3/8” piece of ivory texture and ink with black. Stamp “anniversary” alternating upper and lower case stamps with black ink. Stamp a small heart and color in with a red pen. Glue the strip on the inside back of the card, lined behind where the word “happy” from the front of the card lies so that when the card front is closed, the “anniversary” is hidden behind the “happy”. Secure with mini black brads.
