Sweet On You

A Great Good Tuesday Morning Everyone! Thanks for hanging in with me and still coming to visit. I am feeling better, but still not tip top. Will require another visit to Doc. This upper respiratory infection has really gotten me down. OK, enough whining--
Today is my Design Team Post for Rogue Redhead Designs. The new challenge is up and running: Rebel Challenge #11: Warm Tones For The Gents, time to get those Father's Day goodies in the making. I hope you'll hop over and join in with your Gentlemanly creations.
My card today is an Anniversary card, I've got several anniversaries in May that need congratulating.
I used 3 stamp sets to create this card: Just Sayin', Candy Kisses, Snow Hugs and I used a faux technique that I saw on Splitcoast Stampers this last week while laying in bed coughing and watching YouTube videos.
It's Faux Washi Tape. There are lots of faux techniques for this floating around out there right now, but this one caught my eye because I didn't know Post It Note has a 1" Label roll. Just like a roll of tape, pretty cool. I sent Hubby off on an errand and he found it at Office Depot. 
I cheated a little bit because I didn't want my strips all to be 1" wide so after I stamped the backgrounds on the stirps I cut them to the widths I wanted and cut the banner tails then stuck it on the card. 
I used the stacked frame technique with Stampin' Up Framelits for the couple as the focal point and topped it off with the stacked buttons tied with Bakers Twine. I liked the pop of red with the blue, yellow, and white. 
I hope I'm on the mend and will be creating and posting more often in the coming days, and getting back to visiting around and commenting on your blogs.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥

Sorry to hear you are still under the weather, but the washi tape idea is great! And what a unique color scheme for an anniversary card! Great job!

Hope you feel better soon!
