40th Anniversary Card & CTMH Class 8/30/16

Yesterday I promised to post the cards we made on Tuesday at Joyce's CTMH Card Class. 
CTMH has just introduced, seaglass, their Color of the Year.
The gals in our group gave seaglass a definite thumbs up!
Look at these amazing cards.
seaglass cardstock with a velum overlay

the birthday is heat embossed

seaglass glitter paper and  watercolor spritzed bg
 The die cut words are all new CTMH thinlits.
For this card, we embossed velum to cover the whole card front using a CTMH dot stamp and gold ep.
I just wasn't happy with how my embossing turned out.  When I got home I removed the velum from the top half of the card, embossed it and added a few gold glitter hearts.  Now I am much happier with the card.  And I'll be needing it, too.  There are 4 anniversaries on my calendar this month.


My friend, Judie, recently got this beautiful die and cut a bunch for all of us.  Thanks, Judie.  

The card is a vertical gatefold, with a small velcro closure.

My college BFF and her DH are celebrating their 40th this year.
According to internet sources, Ruby Red is the official color for 40 years.   My daughter was only 2 1/2 when she was the flower girl in their wedding.  Now my daughter has granddaughter who is 2 1/2! My how time gets away from us. 

I used 3 different stamp sets from Verve, Our Daily Bread and Inkadinkadoo.  All the sentiments are heat embossed with SNS white ep.  The cricut cuts are from the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. The patterned paper and black glitter trim are CTMH products.  And the whole card got a spritz of Sparkle Shimmer Spritz, which doesn't show on the pictures.
