Have had a very productive day today. I made headway with some boring paperwork (I'm making myself work on it for one hour a day - any more and I would lose the will to live). I rifled through my stash and made a couple of quick cards. In keeping with my health kick, I walked to the post office (I usually jump in the car!), did a couple of hours in the garden before the rain came, then leapt around my living room trying desperately to keep in time with the zumba wii thingy!! And what am I doing now? Eating Thornton's Continental chocolates!! I'm my own worst enemy!!
Anyway, for those of you who've seen my previous post, you'll know that silver hearts were the very much in evidence in my card for the "Use Beads" Challenge. Well, around the same time, I was asked to make a silver wedding anniversary card - and also asked to use hearts!!
The main image of this 6" square card had been created using Dreamweaver Metallic Silver Embossing Paste and the Heart Flourish Stencil. The hearts are all cut using X-Cut Heart Nesting Dies, and the square mats are nesties!! I embossed the larger white square with the medium dotty 'That Special Touch' mask, and the smaller square and larger white heart with the small dotty mask. The white card is just from my stash, whilst the silver pearl is from a large sheet bought at the Range.
The 25 was cut using an old set of lower case X-Cut Dies which also have numbers with them.The finishing touches comprised white organza ribbon and a little spray of clear beads and pearls purchased from my local craft shop.
To make the matching box, I used the same silver pearl card, and echoed the design from the card.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
DRS Designs - Hearts
Cupcake Craft Challenges - All You Need Is Love
There She Goes - Love is in the Air
