Happy 40th Wedding Anniversary!

Happy 40th Wedding Anniversary!

Recently, my happy parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary and I made this card to honor them!


I started with some special handmade Italian paper I purchased at Paper Source and used my Cricut Expression to cut the “40” and the shapes behind it. After inking the edges of the circle and adding a little hand stitching around the gold embossed sentiment and the Stampin’ Up! background stamp, I felt the card was complete.


Thanks for reading my blog! šŸ™‚

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
