My parents' wedding anniversary is coming up this week. My sister and I already got them a gift (tickets to see Boyz II Men at the brand new casino that just opened outside of Washington, DC), but I wanted to give them a card to mark the occasion, too.
Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try. I used RC's new Clink stamp set and matching dies as my focal image. I die cut a pair of glasses using the die, then selectively inked the matching stamp to get a partially filled look. The image was stamped in a super sparkly gold ink (Delicata Golden Glitz--Delicata inks are my favorite sparkly inks). I arranged the glasses on a pale gray panel. For the sentiment, I die cut "cheers" from gold paper and craft foam, then layered the pieces before placing them on the round panel. I mixed and matched words from two of the set's sentiments to stamp "to you" on a tiny strip of dark gray cardstock to go beneath the die cut word.
For a background for the image panel, I layered a piece of gray dotted patterned paper over a gold paper panel on a dark gray card base. After placing a piece of sparkly silver paper at the bottom of the panel, I added the image panel on top. A strip of gold paper was tucked underneath the circle's bottom edge. I don't usually mix metallics, but I think it worked out okay here! A few gold sequins arranged around the round panel completed the design.
