Slimline Silver Embossed Celebrate Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Last week my brother and sister-in-law celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary, which is silver! Neither of them are into delicate, dainty or fancy, so after much thought and a stroll thru my stamp sets I decided the Stacked Stone Stamp would make a fantastic background with some elegant leaves from the Artistic Dies.

To bring in the silver theme I heat embossed the Stacked Stone image with Silver Embossing Powder. I did not want to add too much bulk to the card as it has to be posted to the UK, so the heat embossing had a huge impact.

Elegant Thank You Card using Emboss Resist Technique

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Elegant Happy Christmas Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today is Christmas Eve – as my great- niece would be telling her Daddy today ‘ one more sleep until Father Christmas gets here’. I am spending my day with final preparation for tomorrow’s lunch and then settling down in front of the fire to watch some Christmas movies!

They say that less is more ~ not entirely sure I agree with that when it comes to card making but today I used a ready made card base from the Gold Cards and Envelopes Pack. It is Very Vanilla and has gold foil decoration on it, so that was my color choices decided, then a little dash of red to finish off! And, you know it was surprisingly quick to create all of the 10 cards that were in the pack!
