This is a card I made for my wonderful next door neighbours who have just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary.
I wanted to make something quite simple and elegant so opted for a more classic style than I would normally make.
I started out with A4 card creased to make an A5 card blank. I layered silver metallic card onto this. I used a glittery vellum with a small flower onto white card to make it more opaque. I used two different ribbons and thread through a belt buckle. The ribbon ends were stuck down onto the back of this panel with double sided tape before sticking to the silver card.
Using a Spellbinders Nestabilities die Heart Squares I cut a panel from a glittery silver card. To this I added a heart shape which has been embossed with a Hearts embossing folder from Crafts-Too. The 25 numbers are cut for the same silver card using the Sizzix Round-a-bout alphabet die set.
The sentiment is from my stash and layered onto silver card. Finally all the laters have been out together with oodles of 3d foam squares to add dimension.
We gave them a gift of a Silver Anniversary rosebush and pot from the local garden centre and hopefully they will keep it alive for many years more as well as their happy marriage.
