Happy Anniversary to my hubby (back in May, that is).

Hi, everyone!
Thursday's are Oldie But Goodie Days at Catch the Bug Blog
I love OBG day because I can break out some of my favorite Bugaboo Stamps to play with, and have an excuse to show them on my blog! lol! As if I need an excuse, right?!
Today I am using the Martian Planet image.
My hubby and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in May, and this is his card that I made him. The inside defines the cover sentiment, but I can't share that with's a "secret message" between us. lol! ;) I know it's not your traditional mushy-gushy-love card, but we aren't very traditional. Haha!

I decided to dig out my old embossing powders and heat tool for this one. While it took a bit of time to heat emboss all the edges of each layer on the front of this card, I am happy with the outcome! It has been a long time since I have played with the powders, and I had forgotten how the different texture for the edge adds some nice dimension! I hope you like it, too! 
I colored my image with my pencils, and I used Gamsol to blend them. I used some of my new Spellbinders dies for the curved edges, and my papers are all from Bo Bunny. I recently picked up a 6" stack called Blast Off! Such cute outer space/boy papers!

You can check out all the great images that Jodie has to offer, at the Bugaboo Store here.

  1. Very that border die...thanks for the reminder. Hope you are having an out of this world time these past few days.

  2. Very clever anniversary card! Love that fun digi!

  3. Awww, you're such a tease....but I'm sure the inside made him smile. Happy anniversary! And at first look I thought you glittered the edges, such a nice effect (I too have forgotten about all my embossing stuff).
