MCT 32nd Release Blog Hop: Anchored in Hope Card

by Veronica

Today is THE DAY! All of the fabulous new products that have been 'sneaked' by the designers this week are available for purchase right now. If you've been following today's Blog Hop, then you've arrived here from Kim's blog. If not, you can start this Hop from the beginning at Emma's blog.

Today I'm showcasing one of the anchors dies from the Anchors & Heart Dies set. I also used the watercolor background from the Build a Scripty & Watercolor Background stamp set.


I wanted this card to be big and bold without a lot of fuss. I cut the anchor twice - once in my patterned paper and once in gray - to give it a shadow.

An anchor is a symbol for hope. This card will be given to my sister-in-law, Kim, who just joined our running team, Hope Water Project, this year and is running the Detroit Half Marathon (her first). I've been sending encouragement cards to my family members who have joined our running team and I know she could really use one. She's recovering from foot surgery right now and looking forward to getting back to training.

  29. Oh My! Not a good time for foot surgery with a run coming up. I like the subtle stripes behind the anchor and the shadow idea. Fabulous job on your card. Good luck to you and your friends and family on your half marathon run in Detroit. The River Bank Run is the biggie around here in Grand Rapids in the spring. I admire everyone who works hard to run in these races. If I was much younger I would give it a try. Good Luck!
