The Anniversary Card my OH made me

Here is the card my lovely OH made me for our 3rd Wedding Anniversary last week.

Whenever he comes up with a theme for his cards, he always thinks too laterally for me, and has to explain them before I get the connection. The shape of this card was no different.

You have probably worked out, quicker than I was told, that the shape of this card represents the shape of a leather tag, that you will find on leather goods that you buy. Three years of marriage is also leather.

Once I was told the connection, I think it is a very cool card, and the reason for the purple writing is that purple was our wedding colour.

All the parts for the card were cut on the craft robo and my OH has decoupaged the number 3.

  6. How clever! I like that - not sure I could get my DH to try but I might issue him a challenge - he'd probably do better than me.
