For my card, I decided to make an anniversary card for my hubby!
We will be celebrating 23 years of marriage in just a couple of weeks!

I used one of the labels from the Assorted Artisan Labels (design ID 36089). Once I had the label I wanted loaded onto my mat, I used the offset feature so that I could create the same shape, just a little bigger. Then I duplicated that so that I could weld the two together to create my card base. Once that was done, the first label that I put onto my mat, layered perfectly onto the base that I created. The "Forever & Always" was one of the free images that came with my very first silhouette machine, the Portrait. I used the offset feature for that as well, that made it much easier for me to be able to pop it up with some foam adhesive. I added some white hearts that I die cut out using my Stitched Heart Layering dies from My Creative Time. I added a few pearls and a bow at the top and voila! I really love how this turned out and the card is also in our wedding colors!
