Today is my day off from work and I’m loving that I have nothing planned for the day but to make a few cards.
I had a request to make a card for a 25th Wedding Anniversary. I went the traditional route and used a silver and white color scheme – almost a monochromatic color scheme.
I saw this sketch last week at Sketch ‘n Stash Challenge and I’ve been dying to use it. This is a really fun sketch to use, I can see so many possibilites to use it. I’m using SEI’s White Elegance DP – this paper pad is GORGEOUS, it’s a tone-on-tone white paper with shimmer and a slight emboss on each paper. I matted each piece with a silver cardstock.
I used a Martha Stewart border punch to make the center border – I flipped it to make the mirror image and thus creating a wider border. I topped it with a sheer white ribbon and then layered a silver on top of that.
I used two different Spellbinder dies; a square and a loopy square. The butterfly is a Martha Steward punch. I added a few silver rhinestones to the butterfly to add just a bit of bling to the card.
The image I’m using is a digital stamp from Stamping Dragon Designs, I was lucky enough to win a few images and I thought it would be fun to use on of them on this card. The digi is Swirly Triple Hearts. Normally I wouldn’t post a card with names on it but these are two fairly common names so hopefully they don’t mind.
I hope you enjoy my creations – thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll stop back again soon!
