Another special celebration card, this time for a silver wedding anniversary. The inspiration for this came from Gill, a fellow 'Pink Lady' SU demo, and her card can be seen here.
I started by making an A5 card blank with plain white cardstock and, onto this, matted a panel of Brushed Silver cardstock. Onto a slightly smaller piece of Whisper White I stamped two of the stamps from Wedding Sweet and the sentiment in Versamark and then heat embossed in silver. The 25 was cut from Brushed Silver cardsock with the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies, and I used Vicky's brilliant idea of cutting more than one layer and glueing them together to make them thicker. Two tiny hearts were added just below the sentiment and these were punched with the Owl punch. A small bow of (non SU) ribbon was placed to the right of the numbers and the card was finished by adding some Basic Rhinestones dotted around the card. The top left picture shows the box I made to put the card in 9made up as I went along!) and I used an embossed heart, punched with the Large Heart and run through the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder, as a closure for the flap.
