Use Three Colours

Well after yesterday's mishap on missing the deadline for the challenge at Delicious Doodles, I'm getting this one in quick(ish).
The colours I have used are Red, White and Silver. I had to make a 25th wedding anniversary card so this fitted perfectly. I have used the Loving Corner from Delicious Doodles. The centre heart idea is from the CDAC current project of heart pockets and using the sketch over at Midnight Madness #86.

The image itself was embossed with silver and touched up with PM's and red glittery gel pen. the top layers of red card and silver/white paper were cut away to show it. The edges lined with silver peeloff.

The same red CS was used for the tag and the front of the heart pocket. The pocket fronts were edged with silver ribbon before adding to the main body with Happy Anniversary heat embossed in silver on it. Secured with a silver brad. Both heart and tag were layered onto silver holographic miri.
The swirls are red beads stuck on, threaded with silver wire to secure. Because the card is for a bloke as well, I didn't want it too flowery or glitzy. The same silver ribbon used on the heart, also acts as a "tie" on the tag and runs at an angle under the pocket.
The pocket is attached to the card top with matching silver brads. The tag can go into either the pocket or behind as here.

Silver peel off lines were added to all edges.
The tag will have the names of the couple on eventually of course.
