Happy Anniversary

October marks 5 years that My Happy Place has been open.
We, therefore, planned an anniversary crop.
One of the things we decided for the crop,
was that we should have a card for everyone to make.
So I worked up this card and made up a kit for each participant.
I used a variety of embossing folder to emboss white card stock.
I then cut them into squares.
I hand drew the hearts and cut them into templates,
 traced them onto card stock and hand cut them,
before running them through the Cuttlebug to emboss them.
 I think it's easier to handcut the shape before it's embossed.
I stamped
"Happy Anniversary" (#9004) from Eureka! Stamps
onto the same card stock as the background
and added a piece to the bottom that was punched
with a Fiskar's border punch. 
This was attached to the card with foam tape.
Thank you for stopping by today.
I hope my card has inspired you in some way. 
Leave a comment if you will and come again soon.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
