I love adding the unexpected to a card and metal, wire and beads are things I always have on hand. I have a lot to celebrate this week and this card was made for my husband. He is my forever Valentine on the 14th. Our anniversary is Feb. 15th and we are celebrating 13 years together. To top it off, his birthday on Feb 17th. Yes, he planned the wedding date so it was easy for him to remember. Still, he can never remember how many years we have been married. He finally framed the marriage license and hung it in our bedroom so he can quickly check it out.
The bead letters make the sentiment for the card and the lower ones are framed in a metal frame held onto the card with heart brads. I got the little silver metal hearts with a bundh of eyelets and brads at a garage sale last summer. Even though it is a guys card I added lace to highlight the hearts so they stand out a little more.
