Greeting cards with love - and a giveaway!

The giveaway for this post is now closed.  See this post to find out the winner and answer!

My husband and I have been married for six years, and together for over ten.  Some time ago, we both started making cards for each other for birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays.  He says he's forbidden to buy cards, but I say he has a secret yen to be a crafter.  Here are our anniversary cards for this year.

Anniversary Cards

Can you tell which one was made by my husband and which by me?

The first card features a variety of quilled flowers, a butterfly, dragonfly and a pair of bees.  Border paper and stamp are from Club Scrap.  The border was created with strips of paper that have been mitered at the corners - a very clever way to make a frame and use up those scraps!

The second card features stamps by Club Scrap and Stampin' Up!  SU's "I {Heart} Hearts" set coordinates perfectly with their heart punches, making it easy to make a border of hearts in minutes.  Crystal stickles were used to highlight the word "love" on each of the stamped images.  The complete saying on the top stamp says, "All things grow better with love."  A partial image was used to create a background for the top.

Have you guessed yet?  Leave a guess in the comments, and I'll pick a random winner from anyone who comments.  The winner will get a little handmade gift from me.  Post your comment before 8pm EDT on July 1st to be eligible for the giveaway.

    Ok, I am going to guess that Paul made the one with hearts. I am torn though because he is British and I know how the British love things like quilling and iris folds. They are both great cards. Maybe I will have to work at recruiting Paul!


  2. I think that Paul made the quilled card and both are really gorgeous. Congratulations on your anniversary.

  3. I honestly don't know who made which card, but all I can say to the whole idea of making one another a card is that it's just the greatest! Both are so pretty. Hope you had a lovely anniversary and many more.

  4. Both cards are really beautiful and very, very sweet. Hmmmm...I'll say that your husband made the one with the quilled flowers---which would be absolutely amazing. But if it turns out that he made the one with the hearts, well, that would be amazing as well. :-)

  5. I am going to guess that he made the card with the quilled flowers...but hey, I could be completely wrong on this one :)

  6. happy togetherness to you! i am guessing he did the flowers and bees, and you the hearts. i am very curious to find out!

  7. Both are beautiful!! You married a very talented hubby. My guess is he did the hearts card. Happy Anniversary.
