Husband's Love

No & No....This is NOT the card in my header...AND this is NOT from my husband (I had to divest myself of him quite awhile back...LOL)....This card is for one of my sons to give to his wife "Deborah".  He saw the card in my header and really like it and asked me to make another, but to create it as an easel card.
So I chose a DP from Making Memories called "Heritage" and the cardstock is from Bazzill. I punched (2) 6"x4" white pieces of cardstock with the Martha Stewart " Double Arch "around the page punch.

The large hearts are punched from my favorite punch by Family Treasures ( I have used it several times lately...teehee),  and the other punches I used are...small heart from Carl,and  the branches are from McGill (it looks similar to the one Martha Stewart came out with after McGill did).

The "Deborah" salutation I made on the computer using "Edwardian Script", and the "With Love" is a  Rubber Stampede stamp. I also embellished with  pearls from Hobby Lobby's Bridal Dept (they go half off alot) and ribbon from Michael's.

I inked the edges of both ovals with "tattered rose" Distress ink by Tim Holtz, before removing it  from the Small Petite oval Spellbinders. I then made a larger version of  "Deborah",  embellished with with Martha Stewart's Deco Fan punch and more pearls. and attached it to the front of the envelope. My son loved it. He is taking my lovely daughter-in-law to a couple's massage today and then lunch. 

This card is for the following challenges...
