Anniversary Damask Card

I made this card based of a design from Unscripted Sketches - a fun site that posts a sketch every Saturday to "inspire" you! One of my favorite patterns is damask so I started with that as my base.

I also embossed a "damsky" design in the middle from a stamp set I had from my wedding back in 2007 (glad I was able to use it again). The embossing took countless times as I tried to repeat the pattern 3 times and also have it emboss without burning. I ended up stamping each one and embossing each one before I moved on to the next.

The "Love" metal sentiment was a great find at a rummage sale. It added a little vintage, romantic feel to the card.

Supplies Used:
Crillon 1 clear stamp set from Lil' Davis Designs - damask stamp
Say It With Style clear stamp set from CTMH - "Happy Anniversary" sentiment
Marcasite embossing powder - Stampendous
Vintage Black Damask paper form The Paper Studio
Black brads
Black ribbon
Cream and Red cardstocks
Black stamp pad


  1. Beautiful! Love the colors and embossing, and I'm quite impressed with your rummage sale find. That "love" sentiment is perfect!

  2. Thanks Katie! Yes, the love metal sentiment was a great find.
