A Silver Anniversary

Happy New Year Everyone!!! 2009 - wow - time flies when you get older doesn't it???!!!

Here is my card for today's Ways to Use it Challenge over at Split Coast - to use silver on your card. Well - this woman is one happy girl on her anniversary because she has received a lovely sterling silver necklace from her loving DH!This card also covers the past 2 of weeks of the OCC challenges! To make a Lovey Dovey card and Clear Thinking - to use something clear on your card. My card is a loving couple celebrating their anniversary and it is a clear acetate card so I think I've got both challenges covered!

I stamped the image with Onyx Black Versafine ink then embossed it with clear embossing powder. That way when I colored with my Copics - the black didn't bleed into the color at all which I have found can sometimes happen.

I cut 4 Labels One Nestability shapes out of Stampin Up designer paper to layer onto the acetate since you need to cover the adhesive that you can see on each piece from the other side. I have one of the front - one on the inside of the front, one on the inside seen below - and one on the back of the card covering the inside one! Phew!

Here is how I did the inside of this card. For the sentiment piece - I left the metal die on the card stock after I cut and embossed it - and sponged in color from the edges. Then I removed the die. That left a nice clear border to the piece.

The anniversary stamps are from a set called Our Love from H&M Stamp company.

Hope you all have a relaxing New Years Day today! Thank you so much for stopping by!
