Happy Silver Anniversary!


Monday was our 25th anniversary and this is the card, envelope and gift ensemble I made for Tim.  There is silver everywhere!  The background of the card is silver Stardreams stationery that was dry embossed using a Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder.  I tied the sheer silver ribbon around it and then added a layer of the black and silver striped paper that had been cut with an EK Success embossing Bracket border punch on both long edges.  I stamped the two hearts from Flourishes' Fanciful Flourishes set with Versamark, embossed them with silver embossing powder and then cut them out and adhered them with foam tape.

The three hearts on the front of the envelope were cut out of two different silver papers using a Martha Stewart Eyelet Heart Punch and then mounted on another strip of the black and silver striped paper.

I also covered the box containing his gift in some coordinating papers and added a couple more the silver hearts to the top of the box and tied it with some more of the sheer ribbon. 

We had a wonderful anniversary celebration - thank you for all of the nice 'happy anniversary' wishes we received!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Anniversary, girlie!!! You celebrated yours just a few days after mine. :-) I've still got another 10 years to go til my silver one, tho.

Your silver card and coordinating gift box are beautiful. I love the little accents - the hearts, the dry embossing, the ribbon, the doily (on the box), and the mix of feminine and masculine papers.
