Anniversary Card and Envelope

Hi Everyone!! I have so missed being here, but if I started to tell you how horrible the past few weeks have been, it would even depress me! haha  Today is our 26th anniversary!  I know I clearly must have been a child bride!  Actually, I was 21, and when I look at my "baby" who is 22, and graduating from college in a couple of weeks, I can't picture her getting married at this age.  I still balance her checkbook, she wouldn't know what to do with a budget if you handed it to her.  I think that times were different back when I got married, and it was the best think besides having my 3 beautiful children that I have ever done!  Now to the part that I hope that you will all be happy to see that I have made my first card in a long time, so I hope you like it, well I really hope that my hubby Paul likes it, since it is for him. I made this card a 6x6 square, and I ran 2 strips of Washi tape down the left side, I cut the bottoms into a V, and at the top I placed flat backed silver pearls from a kit also from HSN, The white paper I embossed with the Swiss dots embossing folder.  The love is with silver letters from my stock, and the Dream and Love on the bottom is also from my stock

 This is the envelope that I made to go with the card.
  The paper liner on the inside of the envelope is
   Anna Griffin.

I made the envelope with my new favorite tool from We R Memory Keepers Envelope maker.

  I have made envelopes 1000 different different ways, and this is by far the easiest, and the quickest way to make them. I purchased it on HSN, and it was the best $20.00 I have ever spent!  I am planning to do a product review on this when I get my camera set up again for videos.  I hope you all like the card, and envelope, thanks for coming by, Karen♥
