- Create a project using glitter
- Create a project for an anniversary
- Or Mash it Up!! Create an anniversary project that uses glitter!!
True confessions here: I have been so busy at work that I did this card last night! Since it was late, I thought "bling" not "glitter"...so my card is almost a Mash-Up! LOL!! The irony is that today is the 27th anniversary of my oldest brother and sister-in-law! Thank goodness the challenge reminded me to make a card for them! So, the card was made on time but will arrive in their Florida home late. Sigh. Anyone have a stamp that says "Happy Belated Anniversary?"
Any way...here's what I used (all Stampin' Up products): Basic gray is my card base,with a layer of tempting turquoise. I used the square lattice impressions folder to emboss it in my big shot. The whisper white layer is stamped with Fifth Avenue Floral images in gray and turquoise. I added some basic gray taffeta ribbon (retired) as a soft accent. I stamped 2 words from Fabulous Phrases in turquoise on white, then punched out with the small tag, layered with a gray larger tag. The square ice brad is retired, but you can get round ones (or squares in the "fire" warm colors) from this year's Idea Book & Catalog. I added a bit of ribbon and some dimensionals to pop up the tag. The final touch is a few basic jewel rhinestones...almost glitter, right?? By the way, the colors were prompted by this week's color challenge on splitcoastsampers.
I hope you play along this week...it's fun to send a card to a couple who is celebrating years of love! Be sure to use keyword FM18 in your online gllery, and link to the Friday Mashup challenge blog here.
