Large Anniversary Card

Today I wanted to share an anniversary card I made for my son and his wife:

This is a larger card. I used a full 8-1/2 x 11 sheet folded in half, making the finished size 8.5" x 5.5". I used one of my favorite engagement photos of them and printed it out in Sepia. 

I made the card with CTMH cardstock in Colonial White, with the photo mat in Creme Brulee, along with Desert Sand ink.  Using a sponge, I distressed the edges and the raised embossed area with the ink before attaching it to the card base. 
The embossed panel is slightly raised with dimensional tape.

The lace-edged burlap is from a shop on Etsy. I just absolutely love it! 

(I also used a wider version of it on the Guest Book album I made for our daughter's wedding. You can see the album here, in case you missed it)

Finishing touches: a metal heart I've had for so long, I don't remember where I got it! Little punched hearts, embossed & inked, and 21 pearls from CTMH (Mocha Opaques)!

I hope you like the card and thanks for coming to my blog today! :)
