25th Anniversary Card

How exciting to have an Anniversary on today's date:- 10-10-10. Well, my in-laws have exactly that --- it's their 25th Anniversary. :-)

Here's the card I made for them:-

Instead of it being a "pop-up", I call this a "pop-out" card, as the middle folds/pops out:-

You can see the "pop-out" a li'l bit better here:-


Cricut Expression
Cricut Design Studio
Cricut Cartridges (see below)
Martha Stewart border punch – Loopy Loop & Heart Lace
Martha Stewart Score Board
Glue (regular, ATG, & Zig Two-Way for small items)
Patterned Paper
Pearls (on “L” for Love)
Background paper – computer generated
Sentiments – computer-generated
Chipboard letters – LOVE
Jolee’s Boutique – doves & olive branch
Flower – for front of envie
Stampin’ Up Ink – Really Rust (for inking around edges of sentiment)

Cricut Cartridges used:-
George & Basic Shapes – card base & heart cut-out
Hannah Montana – heart & layer

I designed this card in Cricut Design Studio. The dimensions of the card and inset are as follows:-

* Base:- 8.5” x 11”
* Inset:- 8.35” x 11.25”

The base scores at 5 ½” and the inside heart inset scores at 2 ¾” from each edge (vertically) and the center fold is right down the middle of the heart. The inset glues in just off the edges of the base.

I created the “CooCooLoveNest,” saying, on the computer, using it on the front of the card and inside the heart inset.

If you’re interested, here’s the cut file:-


  1. Linda that is a beautiful card. Sending Happy Anniversary wishes to your inlaws. Im sure they loved your card.

  2. Hiya, Linda! What a beautiful card and please let your in-laws know I wish them a wonderful 10-10-10 happy anniversary!
