A close friend asked me to make a custom 15th anniversary card for her husband and here's a sneak peek at what I whipped up in my 3 fav wedding colors - sliver, black and white. I used cardstock from DCWV A formal Affair stack, Bazzill basics white cardstock, patterned paper called silver anniversary words from Flair Designs and flowers from Recollections. Although my camera didn't catch it, I spritzed the couple Psst! Sheer Shimmer Spritz in frost by Tsukineko to give them a silvery frosty look.
I started by finding out what my friend wanted to say in her own words and using a quote from my go to resource - The Ultimate Guide to The Perfect Card by Linda LaTourelle - to go along with it. Then I laid it out in Word, chose the perfect font and printed it to make sure it was aligned properly.
I then cut my card base to 8 1/2 x 11" and ran it through my printer so that the text would print on the white side (inside of my card). This was a 'hit it and quit it' sort of project so that's a tip for ya if you're in a hurry. Print right to the card base instead of making it a separate layer.
Here's the final product in all its glory!
- DCWV - Formal Affair Stack
- Flair Designs - Silver Anniversary words (paper)
- Bazzill - basics white cardstock
- Recollection - silver dimensional flowers
- Bride and groom cut at 5" from Wedding solutions Cricut cart
- Top note and shadow - cut at 5.75" and 6" from Art Philosophy
- silver metallic ribbon from my stash
- Adhesives - foam tape, scotch ATG, Zots glue dots
I hope you enjoyed this quick post! I'd love to hear your comments for the happy couple (aren't they cute?!) and about the card of course!! Thanks!
