A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I celebrated our “40th Anniversary”!  My how time flies.  Naturally the special event necessitated a special card. When designing the card, I wanted to make a larger card than the normal size so that there would be ample room for my handwritten note.  Thus, I made a card that would fit into a legal size envelope. 
Anniversary Card using Stampin’ Up! Coffee Break Designer Series Paper

Interior of Anniversary Card using Stampin’ Up! Number of Years Bundle
When planning the card, I decided the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper had the look that I wanted for the card front and knew that for the special anniversary number, that the Number of Years bundle with the stamps and coordinating dies had to be used for the card too.  I then looked through my other stamp sets to find additional words and a background stamp to help complete the card.  By masking words from several sets, I was able to create a card that contained the sentiments wanted.  As you can tell by the project material list, a wide variety of stamp sets were used! The color selection of Crumb Cake and Navy were the perfect combination.  Of course, a handwritten sentiment was included to express my feelings of having achieved 40 years of marriage and the card was perfect to use for my expressions of love.

We took a special trip to Sedona, Arizona to celebrate the occasion.  It was a great trip and we have wonderful memories of our special anniversary!

Have a great week and check back soon to see another project!
