25th Wedding Anniversary

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you enjoyed time with your friends and family! Today was the first time since I joined Stampin' Up that I used non SU cardstock and ink, but since I needed silver accessories for a "silver anniversary" card and I had some left over paper and ink from Michael's laying around. The cool part about this card is that the ribbon that I used was actually white. Read below to find out how to dye your ribbon!

Stamps: Close as a Memory, Congrats
Paper: Silver, Basic Black, Whisper White Cardstock 
Ink: Silver Craft, Basic Black
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Embossing Gun, Liquid Applique, Ribbon, Corner Rounder, Sponge Dauber

1. Score 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Silver cardstock at 5 1/2. Fold on score line. 
2. Stamp flower from Close as a Memory set using the Silver Craft Ink onto a 3 x 3 1/2 piece of Whisper White cardstock.
3. Emboss with clear embossing powder.
3. Stamp sentiment from Congrats set in Basic Black Ink in bottom right corner of Whisper White. 
4. Cut a 4 inch piece of white ribbon. Dip your sponge dauber in the Basic Black ink and pull ink over white ribbon using long strokes. Do both sides and set aside to dry.
5. Apply liquid applique around the edges of the flowers (it's hard to see in the picture, but it looks really nice in real life). Use heat tool to dry applique and it will puff up.
6. Take dried black ribbon and tie a small knot. Adhere around Whisper White.
7. Mat to a 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 piece of Basic Black cardstock and adhere to silver card base.
8. Stamp sentiment from Congrats set in lower right corner of the card base.
9. For the inside adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic Black to card base. Use corner rounder to round corners of 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Whisper White and adhere to black.
