Embossed heart background with a chalk greeting for an anniversary card

 I need an anniversary card for the weekend and so went looking in my stash of card kits to see if I had anything appropriate and found this card from my last regular card class.  Just goes to show you how versatile this technique is!!
The hearts were gathered from my heart punchie stash and glued to a quarter sheet of white cardstock then embossed with the lattice embossing folder (SU).  After trimming it to size (4" x 5.25") I added the ribbon onto which I strung the greeting before adhering both ends to the back of the layer using double sided tape.  The greeting was one created for the class using a chalkboard tag set which I downloaded from online.  I added the greeting using a chalkboard font after digitally removing the previous art.  I laser printed it onto white cardstock and trimmed it out of the large sheet and then fussy cut it to leave a slim border.  A small hole punch quickly punched the holes on both ends.  After adhering the greeting I glued the large element to the front of a red card and tied a short length of ribbon with one knot to the length on the front of the card to simulate a bow!!  It always special to celebrate significant anniversaries with special people!!!  Therese
