About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Silver Anniversary!!

I was asked to make a 25th Wedding Anniversary card for my friend to give to her husband. Apart from the wording, all she said was "something modern". This is what I came up with.
The card base is A3 Fresh White Centura Pearl, teamed up with the Matt Silver card from the Sara Signature Together Forever collection. I also used a darker matt grey paper for contrast.  
The champagne flutes are from Sara Signature Together Forever Collection, and the rose is from Verity Rose Cupcake Accessories collection. I also used the Lattice Flourish Edge'able die that came free with Crafter's Companion Crafter's Inspiration Issue 8. The bubbles were cut with the centre die from Essentials Flowers for All Occasions 1. And the lettering is Die'ire Contemporary Alphabet and the little Essentials Alphabet.
I always make a matching box to go with these 8x8 celebration card - and to decorate th inside of that too!!
