I'd originally planned to share something else this month but my anniversary was last week and I really like the card I made for Hubs, so I decided to share it instead. ;)
I started with an 8.5x11 piece of paper and cut it in half. Then I used a bone folder to crease the paper to create the fold. I used some paper scraps, in a pattern I adore, for the stripes at the bottom. I also used buttons - the big ones already had adhesive on the backs but for the smaller ones, I used foam adhesive so they'd 'pop' from the page. Then I picked a paper scrap in a coordinating color for the writing, and using my Big Shot and Script alphabet, I cut the letters for the words. Voila! A cute card that Hubs appreciated. :D
As an aside, if y'all have been following me, I recently quoted Rock Chick Redemption in a Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts post, where Hank took Roxie to the Buckhorn Exchange for dinner. Hubs and I went there for dinner on our anniversary. :) I didn't have alligator, but not because I think they're cute. I *did* have a delicious steak dinner though and the ambiance just can't be beat in Denver's oldest restaurant. Here are a few photos from inside...
