Seattle Mariners Anniversary Card

Today I’d like to share the custom card I made for one of my very favorite couples. A few months ago, my best friend and her equally fantastic husband celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary. Like any good Seattlelite, they’re huge Seattle Mariners fans and celebrated their special day with a fun trip to Safeco Field to watch our boys play some baseball! I used my Cricut Explore machine to cut the custom design and colored in the white “JUST MARRIED” words to make them resemble the stitched last names of the baseball players. I drew the MLB tag on the back and added some red baseball stitching around the edge of the card to tie it all together. I’d love to have purchased actual jerseys for them with the custom wording and numbers, but a card was more affordable. 😉

Married Since 1994 Seattle Mariners Anniversary card

I made the background with watercolor paper, a few different inks, some water and a cute Space Needle stamp set. It was fun to watch an idea from my head come to life in a 5″ x 7″ card!
