Hearts Abound!
It seems I never have enough anniversary cards. I created this one so I could make lots at one time - to stock up! :D  I shared it at my Card Class last month, too.  Here are a few tips:
  1. I used lots of Dimensionals so the small pieces would stand out.
  2. I pierced the paper AFTER I mounted all the pieces. I did this so I could position it where I wanted it. I found when I pierced the paper first that I had to manipulate the banner and small hearts and it didn't line up where I wanted it. The paper-piercing template is clear so you can easily see where you're piercing.  
  3. This greeting has other words underneath it "and many more to come". I omitted those easily by using my marker to color in just the text I wanted.
