My lovely mum and stepdad will have been married 10 years this February so in late January I set about designing a card for them. I had a couple of ideas of elements I wanted it to have and I’m quite happy with how it’s turned out.
The symbol for tenth wedding anniversaries is tin, so when I visited Modulor and found these metal numbers I thought they were perfect. The pack only had numbers 1-4, so I hacked away at the 3 to turn it into a 0.
The card itself is square plain white, with an iridescent cream overlay to give it a touch of luxury.
The second element I was keen to include was the rings. I also found them at Modulor for a mere 25 cents each (well they are tiny) so I attached them to some silvery baker’s twine I had and ran it across the top of the card.
And that’s it. I like making cards that are fairly simple, yet bold in design – I can’t be doing with intricate patterns and writing – I use this simple stamp set for almost every card I make.
