The Mister and I will be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary next Monday... WOOT!!! :)
So, I wanted to make him a card that was a little beyond the "ordinary". An idea on Pinterest sparked this design--which, for lack of a better word, is kind of like a rebus! The rebus was pretty popular oh, about 20 years or so ago. They were so fun, though, and I am always hoping they will make a come-back! *chuckle*
If you are too young to remember them--I am totally dating myself--ack!!!--a rebus is a type of puzzle or message that contains letters, numbers, and symbols that represent words or syllables. Some rebus puzzles (rebuses???) are quite clever and the message may not be obvious at first glance. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to do something along these lines by taking a look at my stamp collection and embellishments to see what I could come up with! SUPER FUN!!!
Because I did not have a stamp or die for one of the symbols, I had to improvise with a chipboard sticker, which I altered to make it look metallic! By pressing the chipboard piece into my Versamark pad, I could coat it with gold embossing powder, heat it and voilá! It looks like a gold metal charm! I did the same to my little Potty People Wood Veneers, too.

Were you able to figure out the puzzle? Here's a clue: A figure 8 on its side is the symbol for infinity! *cheeky grin*
