25th Wedding Anniversary

I was asked to make a 25th Wedding Anniversary card. Something special for a special couple.
I followed my oval stepper card idea - with a bit of a difference.

The oval was replaced by a heart shape.

The theme was silver and purple for the party so went with these colours.

The image is purple as well but surrounded by all the silver, refused to come out true to colour.

Using Delicious Doodles' The Lovers image, digitally altered to the correct purple colour, printed twice. The top layer was relieved of the white lines and stuck to the other image that had the white lines coloured silver. A small gem placed in where the earring was. This was in turn layered onto silver then more purple heart shapes.

The base card is a stepper card but with a difference. The tutorial for this can be found at Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack. This was made with pearlised silver card stock.

The left hand panels were stamped with heart images in silver.
Some silver peel offs to add that extra little something.

The right hand side
One of the homemade roses from purple and silver paper and the 25 from silver peel offs and the same border peel off round the edges.

The bottom, some more purple paper and peel offs but this time also a silvery white lace. Another of the silver and purple roses I made.

Then the box. Can't have a card without the box.
Pearlised white card stock this time. More of the lace from the card and some more of the paper roses.

The card nestles in silver tissue paper and a suitably mushy verse was stuck into the lid.
