You fog my spectacles

Hello, my crafty friends! I sure do enjoy jamming to classic rock while getting my crafty groove on! Music is so good for the soul! Sure glad no one can hear me, lol! I'm really excited to share today's Really Reasonable Ribbon DT inspiration project! I created an anniversary card using the very cool Canvas Color Band with Stitched Edge Black ribbon. This card was for my hubby and he loved it! This canvas ribbon is so awesome for masculine cards!

Masculine cards don't require a lot of embellishments usually, so the only other ones I used were red foam heart die cuts, black glittered gumdrops and red plain gumdrops. I dusted the hearts with my embossing powder tool to give them a little definition against the red background.

I absolutely love the red and black color combo. It's so romantic and I thought it was great for this card! I cut the glasses from black glimmer paper and added a silver nailhead on each side to resemble real glasses, lol! And did I mention how awesome the canvas ribbon is?! :D

I kept the inside simple, just stamping the happy anniversary sentiment on a layered panel. I really like how this turned out!

Would love to enter this anniversary card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock, Marco's Black cardstock, Stampin' Up! Black Glimmer Paper (#139605), Stampin' Up! Stacked With Love DSP (#137779)
