Ruby Wedding Card

I was asked to make a Ruby Wedding Card for my brother in law to give to some good friends of his. The couple have been through a tough time recently as he has had a serious illness and spent a long time in hospital so I wanted to make a special card for them to celebrate their anniversary.

Please excuse my inky hands in the first photo!

I spent quite a long time cutting the aperture into the right place on the Cricut but at least it gave me lots of labels to use on the inside of the card. I printed the greeting on the first label by printing first on to plain printer paper and then attaching the label with repositionable Herma and running it through the printer again. I added the little corner of flowers and leaves and used My Minds Eye patterned papers.

I hope they like it but as their anniversary is not until next month it will be a while before I find out!

I would be happy to hear your comments.
