1st Anniversary Card

My friend asked me to make a card for her sister (and her husband of course) for their first wedding anniversary, perfect as I believe that your first one is paper? I'm sure someone out there will correct me if I am wrong ;-)
I wanted to make a quilted card after seeing lots around {including Julies}, and so  decided to go all out and sew all the little "patches" together properly, phew! Springtime Vintage paper used for this again and I have punched out quite a few squares still so there will be more patchwork coming, if only for that reason I hope you like, lol! For a closer look hopefully you will be able to click on the picture to enlarge?
I used a pretty frame from the new set Four Frames on Page 11 of the MINI catalogue with it's matching punch. The sentiment is from Cheer and Wishes topped with a little punched heart and pearls,
I finished it with a bow using the lush new Seam Binding Ribbon, topped off with a button from the Subtles Collection,
I also sewed the inside too :-) someone take me away from the sewing machine! lol!
Well, that's today's card for you and I hope you have a lovely day today. I plan on getting inky later, after the chores are done that is!
Happy Stampin'


  1. Absolutely beautiful. The papers all work so well together and the patchwork effect is terrific. Your sewing is very neat, wish mine was as good.

  2. This is lovely SJ, the quilt effect looks fab. You're more patient than me, I am no good with a sewing machine, my lines are always wonky!!
    Enjoy your craft time later. It's me DO today so I am planning on having some crafty time too!
    Hugs, Vicky ~x~

  3. Hi SJ - can I have one of these on my Wedding Anniversary - its a few more than paper (42 more than paper - I was a child bride) and its on Christmas Eve (Him indoors can hardly forget that can he!)
    Joking apart - this is seriously beautiful - and arent you the clever one with the sewing - maybe I should have a go at this?

  4. Fabulous- just fabulous, I am sure that they will just love it!!

  5. Gorgeous card - love the sewing !
