Celebrations – Anniversary Star Card & Seed Gift

Talk about this being totally different from what I planned

I printed off the pages with the view to make a cracker & a matching box to be given as an

anniversary gift – the brief being CELEBRATIONS

Well I had just finished a workshop the day before on how to make this star card.

The idea first seen by `Playwithpaper` on Joanna`s craft forum

I wrote & asked Sue if it was ok for me to use the idea and I just loved the new fold so I changed my mind

& went for this anniversary card instead.


In our family with just adore plants and often give them as gifts as the evoke so many memories of different people.

One of mine & my husbands favourite plants is the `Love in a mist ` – so I was thrilled to see it as a backing paper on the New

Jane Shasky – from the heart of the garden cd rom

by Joanna Sheen

The idea behind the card is to have room to add a little gift

in the middle space – it was ideal for some seeds , so I made a little packet  for hubby to grow


Although it`s a bit girly with the trim it also fits the bill as it`s for an anniversary card

& blue is his favourite colour

So here is the finish card

This style card means there are lots of space to add the backing papers too

& shows the packet of seeds with the message behind the seeds

The centre panel is using the `love in a mist` image – some peeled paint distress ink has been used to

cover the white edge left on the topper

The card folds up so nicely to create a lovely different card shape with the gift inside

Little embellishments have been used from the cd to add detail and make the

 project very personal too

 Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my challenge piece

& a big thanks to Paula for making the challenge blog a great sucess

  1. Hi Suzanne,
    What a fantastic design, I love it. I am going to be having a go at this asap!! Was this your own design – if i do a card from another design I always give credit where it is due. It looks as if you are enjoying the Jayne Shasky CD rom as much as I am – isnt it gorgeous. Everything that you do is amazing. Happy New Year! Jo x

    • Hi Jo

      No it wasn`t my design – `Playingwithpaper` posted a card on the JS forum and I asked if she minded me using the idea – so I did the workshop and just had to play using the Jane cd as I adore it – so she deserves all the credit – I just thought it needed to be shared as it`s a wonderful style
      Happy New Year to you & thanks to all for the kind comments
      Suzanne x
