I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see these cards!!
I had a little help with the design thanks to Splitcoast Stampers (LOVE THEM)!! Click HERE for a link to Splitcoast Stampers Easel Card Instructions.

I started out with a 4x4 square on Layer2 because that is the size of the card face that I wanted to fill up. I closed the "eye" on Layer2 so it would not show in this photo and confuse anyone (especially me)!!
Next, I went back to Layer1 and added this bride and groom from Wild Card sized at 2.36w x 7.48h on my Gypsy. I copied a second couple. I found the rings on Designer's Calendar sized at 1.50w x .72h. I found the numbers on Base Camp and sized them to .61inches. I welded the numbers and rings and rotated them 90 degrees.
I welded the numbers and rings first, then rotated them to see if they fit my 4x4 square. I sized them to fit the space.
Here is the years welded to the rings.
After I cut out the bride and grooms, I realized that if I layered the black paper groom on top of the white one it would look better to see the white shirt through. So I copied the couple on another layer and used the Hide Contour button to hide two inner cuts on the groom's chest/stomach area.
I cut off the bride in black. If you want to get more detailed, you can cut out an additional bride in the color of your hair (mine would be yellow) and then layer that on.
I ran my groom and the dates/rings through my 1" Xyron. I always try to remember to rub the images to cut down on glue buggers (extra balls of adhesive).
Here are the bride and groom.
Next, I score my 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 piece of cardstock at 4 1/4 and 6 3/8 and fold with the bone folder.
I used a piece of paper from this awesome 8x8 paper pad by DCWV.
I put a strip of paper on the bottom of the card and added some diamonds (sticky back crystals) to the ring.
I used pop dots for my bride and groom.
I added a little silver ribbon, some mini paper flowers (found in the $1 bin at Michaels) and some silver and pearl flowers from my stash.
I cut some pieces of a pearl border and added some crystals for fun. The big pearl acts as a stopper for the card.
Here is a side view. We are laid back people (he he).
Here is my anniversary card for my wonderful husband Mike who lets me craft just about any time I want to!!
