Happily Ever After

Happily Ever After card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from My Favorite Things
My parents are celebrating their 49th (yes, 49th!) wedding anniversary this week, so I put together a card for them to mark the occasion.  The layout for the design comes from the current challenge at Sunday Stamps.  I replaced the sketch's large round panel with a deep red pierced heart die cut. The die cut was adhered to a sparkly silver cardstock strip positioned near the bottom of a gray dotted patterned paper panel.  The "happily ever after" sentiment from the My Favorite Things Essential Sentiments set was stamped in silver ink on a dark gray panel, then heat embossed in silver for a shiny pop against the dark background.  I used foam tape to adhere it over the heart.  A trio of silver glitter enamel dots were arranged above the heart as an accent.  The finished panel was adhered to a pale gray card base.

Materials Used:
Essential Sentiments stamp set, Steel Grey and Grout Gray cardstock, Die-namics Pierced Heart STAX dies (My Favorite Things); Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Cherry Cobbler cardstock (Stampin' Up!); silver paper (Target); Smokey Shadow patterned paper (Papertrey Ink); silver embossing powder (Hero Arts);  silver enamel dots (Eyelet Outlet); foam tape
