June Anniversary Card

anniversary shutter card, designed by Grace Baxter


With June being the most popular month for weddings in past years, it's for sure there are many June anniversaries. My sister, who is celebrating her anniversary today, loves flowers any way she can get them, so I'm sure she will enjoy these.


When I first saw this package of stickers, without hesitation I had to have them! I wasn't sure where or how I'd use them, but somehow they touched a chord in me and made me feel happy. Don't you love when that happens?

This is the first tri-shutter card I've ever made. Of course, being the paper nut that I am, I bought wayyyy too many beautiful papers in shades of purple and green. I couldn't help myself! This card only required a few.

For this card, the beautiful stickers take the spotlight. These are from the Tim Coffey collection by K&Compay. They are mounted on plain white and "popped" for dimension. For most of the panels, I chose to emboss rather than go with a busy printed paper.

This design can be used for any occasion, only needing the centre message to be changed appropriately. I made a personalized message on the computer and attached it to the back of the closed card. I hope the recipients think to turn it over and look there!


The Anniversary sentiment was cut with the Cricut using the Sweethearts cartridge.
