Silver Card Challenge

Indeed a great honor to be invited as the guest designer for this week’s CASology Week 125 (SILVER) card challenge.

Silver card..mm…lots of options but I decided to go along with a Silver Jubilee celebration card in silver color as well.

Armed with all the heart stamps of different style and size I could find, I started looking for a “congratulations” sentiment stamp that has the most elegant font to match the silver color and the theme of the card.

After stamping the sentiment, I started stamping in random order of the different hearts.  If you count the number of hearts, there are exactly 25 of them, which was intended for the theme of the card.  Every one of them is stamped with Watermark and embossed with silver embossing powder.  I really wanted it to stand out and silver embossing will definitely do the trick!

I do hope you like this design.  The 25th anniversary congratulations is conveyed by the silver color and 25 hearts, representing the 25 years.

Supplies and tools

  • Lawn Fawn LF704 Love You A Latte, using the 3 hearts.
  • Hero Arts E5002 All the Best Wedding, using the word “Congratulations” only.
  • Other heart design stamps from various brands.
  • Versamark Watermark Ink pad.
  • Silver embossing powder.

I am spreading a little blessing and would like to give away this card.  If you know someone who is celebrating their 25 years anniversary and would like to surprise them, join in the giveaway fun here.

    What a pretty card. I love the symbolism of the 25 hearts and in silver. Great job with heart placement, too. And, of course, that silver embossing is fantastic.
