Summer Love | Anniversary Easel Card

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our blog today. Jane is here to inspire you today with her stunning ‘Summer Love’ Anniversary Easel card, featuring our gorgeous ALWAYS & FOREVER stencil, some or our wonderful beach themed stamps and more..

Hello everyone, I am back with my latest Design Team make for Visible Image. For today’s make I am sharing a step by step of the card I made for my Daughter and Son in Law’s recent wedding anniversary. As it was a special one, their 10th, I decided to make something very detailed and meaningful to them. 

They live at the seaside and spend a lot of time here.

 I decided to make a circle easel card and I knew exactly which Visible Image products would be perfect. 

At The Beach

Ride The Waves

the sentiment from Happy Anniversary

Plus 2 stencils 

Sandy Feet 

and Always and Forever.

The always versatile

Framed Fibres layering die (for extra textured waves).

And finally for the number 10, I stamped the numbers from the White Rabbit set

 and used their co-ordinating dies to cut them out.


I inked 2 circles of card using these seaside coloured distress stain sprays.

I then inked the Always and Forever stencil onto the top of the card using distress ink,

It creates such a romantic image.

Once dry I white heat embossed the waves from Ride The Waves

On the bottom part of the card I stencilled the small footprints from Sandy Feet using texture paste

I cut off the tip of the card to accommodate the fold in the circle easel card blank. I make my own, there are lots of on line tutorials elsewhere for how to do this.

I stamped some of the At The Beach shells in brown ink onto inky mop up card and cut them out. I also stamped the sentiment from  Happy Anniversary and added foam fixers underneath to raise it to hold the top part of the card in place when stood up.

I added pieces of card die cut using the Framed Fibres layering die and stuck them in place to represent the waves lapping at the footprints in the sand. 

I glued all the elements in place

and for a cool watery sea effect I decided to use glossy accents and glamour dust glitter to give a shimmer to the waves and around the sandy footprints.

This is how it looked when dry

Here is my finished easel card

with a couple of close ups

and one final shot

You could of course adapt either part of my easel design to make a single flat card. However, all these extra details really do make for a different card and are worth the effort for those special people in your life. My card was very loved and appreciated by my daughter and SIL.

All the Visible Image links are listed below.

Come and join the Visible Image Facebook group …it would be lovely to see you there. You will see lots of gorgeous makes by the DT and customers to inspire your own creativity. 

 I organize a monthly artist trading card swap there.  We celebrated a whole year of swapping in May. Whether you are a new stamper or a seasoned one, you are most welcome to join us. Nearly 100 members Worldwide have taken part since it started. It’s been such fun and it’s so lovely to receive a unique piece of art from your partner in the post. The details for each swap are put up in the group on 23rd of the month. There is no “monthly” commitment, just join in when you have the time!
