I made this card for my BIL & SIL Silver Wedding anniversary in June! What a great occasion.
I was out shopping for supplies to make the gift (next blog post) and I came across these HUGE Stampendous flowers at Joann's and they were 50% off. Result! Yeah, I know I may have sourced them elsewhere on the internet yada yada yada. Still I stocked up on many things I had been having difficulty finding (Versamark refill I love you!).
I printed my base card. If I had been thinking straight, yeah, that's a rare commodity for me, then I would have played with font sizes within the printed greeting. I'm happy with it but I think it would have been more WOW if I had made the "Happy 25th Wedding Anniversary" larger and maybe even making the "25th" a different size as well. Oh well, have to chalk it up to experience.
Lots of stamping and masking on this one!
At first I was going to shade the flowers with tones of pinks, blush, soft peaches, but when I saw the white with the sparkly silver embossing I just couldn't. I really liked the simplicity of it. So then it evolved to Plan B - simplicity needs texture and layers for me to make it more super special. I think it works. I don't think the photography shows how vibrant the silver is on this card against the crisp white.
