Quick and Easy Anniversary Card Using Stampin' Up!s Splendid Day Designer Series Paper

I was needing a quick and easy anniversary card and after looking around the internet, this layout came to mind. It isn't hard at all. What you need is a Designer Series Paper that has a pleasing and matching background and this card layout will work perfectly. 

This beautiful and shiny foil like paper from the retired Splendid Day Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack works nicely because you want two subtle sections and two eye-catching sections in this design. This particular sheet was paired with Sahara Sand cardstock on a card base of Basic White cardstock.

Here's the details for making this card:

Basic White Cardstock - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Layer 1 - Sahara Sand Cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4" (If you are using a different DSP, just color coordinate this layer with the DSP.)
Layer 2 - Retired Splendid Day DSP -  3 1/2" x 4 3/4". Cut this piece carefully on both diagonals. Flip over the top and bottom sections to show the back side of the DSP. The left and right sections are the shiny foil side.  You can substitute whatever Designer Series Papers you may have on hand that gives a similar look.

Choose an anniversary stamp you have and stamp the greeting in coordinating ink in the top section before adhering to Layer 1.

Lay out your four sections and start adhering to the Sahara Sand. Be mindful of even border spacing.
Take a 22" piece of coordinating ribbon and wrap around this layer and tie a bow in the middle. Secure bow with glue dots.

Raise this completed layer on Dimensionals and affix to card front. Add coordinating embellishments. I used Champagne Rhinestones on my sample.

Don't forget to make a matching envelope flap, cut at 2 3/8" x 6" and adhere to exterior flap, Trim off excess.

Now you have a lovely card to give away to celebrate an anniversary!
