Silver 25th..........

I was commissioned to make this card by a customer at the shop. The brief was- a 25th Anniversary card for Jackie & Martyn, he likes Leeds United football team & playing squash, she likes running and cooking. Okey doke! So how was I going to incorporate that little lot on a C5 card? Personally I wouldn't put hobbies etc on an anniversary card because I think that it confuses what the card actually is, and makes the card crowded if you've got to add more than what the card really is about. I think that there's a lot going on on this card, but the customer gets what the customer wants! She loved it thank goodness, and I've got a couple more to make for her next month.
As I said before this is a C5 card and I used Papermania wedding paper matted onto silver mirri on the front. I cut a fancy heart from silver cardstock and a blackout from silver mirri. I added a '25' cut in silver mirri with a 'flat' silver shadow. The numbers were adhered with foam pads to the fancy heart. 'Jackie & Martyn' was cut from silver mirri and adhered flat to the card front above the heart which was raised with foam tape. Below the heart is a border cut from more silver mirri, with a punched edge, and wrapped with silver ribbon. I added a bow and a bloom with pearly strands in it's centre. The little icons along the border were cut from silver mirri and adhered along the border with foam pads. The squash racquet was cut by hand (I referred to the Argos catalogue for a realistic look as I couldn't find my hubby's squash racquet!)

Fancy heart- Love Struck
'25' & 'Jackie & Martyn'- Winter Woodland
