50th Anniversary

Hello Everyone,

For today I will be playing along with The Card Concept. Their challenge seemed intriguing so I thought I would try it out. Here is my card for today, enjoy!
I was inspired by The Card Concepts inspiration photo. Lots of bold elegance and beautiful colors.
 I wanted to reflect that elegance, boldness, and colors in my design.
    
 At any angle, this card will change how it looks due to the gold flex 
in the numbers and pattern on the designer paper.  You can see from the examples above.

 The detail on these numbers is so pretty. They were done using a laminator, foil, and paper that primed for foiling. The foil actually is the negative from a leftover piece of foil from numbers that were originally foiled.  
I was awed at this technique on a video by Jennifer Mcguire.  It is worth the lengthy video.

Challenges Entered:
The Card Concept: #75- Boldly Graphic



My Aunt and Uncle would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last week. Unfortunately, my Uncle lost his battle with Pancreatic Cancer five years ago. So sad to think of the 'what ifs' or 'could have been' for them. I do know this, they loved each other and had a successful marriage, two fantastic children, and one add-on child, me. I am grateful and humbled to know them together as a husband and wife.  I still visit my Aunt and we talk on the phone from time to time. I am happy and proud to call them family.

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

All the best, 
Shawna

What a gorgeous way to use the leftover foil. I enjoyed Jennifer's video on that technique as well. You've got a beautiful card. Thanks for playing at The Card Concept this week!
