4 Fold Anniversary Card Commission

A friend commissioned a card for her husband for their 25th wedding anniversary. This 4 fold anniversary card is what I came up with. The brief was to incorporate some of the things he likes as well as be a keep sake to mark the event. I decided to use the 4 fold card as my design because each page could then tell it’s own story. Otherwise it can be hard to incorporate many different themes into one card design.

Design Elements

I started with a card base of basic grey and made up the 4 fold card base. I wanted a place to write so I created that on the last page, I added washi tape at the top of the page and a film strip done the righthand side (he’s into movies). A mat of Mint Macaron (retired) was added to introduce an accent colour. I used the you’re my person stamp from Falling for You stamp set, appropriate and I knew my friend would get this being a Grey’s Anatomy fan.

In the next section, I cased a design from Karen Gooch at Inker’s Workshop using the Urban Underground Designer Series Paper and the ‘Best Guy Ever’ greeting from Suite Sentiments stamp set (retired).

Private Pocket

Behind the front cover I wanted a pocket for a couple of cards that could have more intimate messages written on them. I created a pocket using vellum with silver hearts (retired) and then I added a silver embossed vintage car. This is for his love of Fords, I used the vintage car from Guy Greetings stamp set.

On the back of the front cover I added a world stamp to indicate the love of travel with the greeting sending an understated message of love.

Celebrate with Silver

On the front cover, I had to have 25 in silver glimmer paper and more of the Urban Underground DSP. I love how this dsp coordinated with the theme while remaining in the background.
