At this time of the year with all the Christmas crafting that has been going on it's easy to put aside other important card making occasions like anniversaries & birthdays.  I've used our theme this week, "The Richness of Red" to design an anniversary card with a Christmas glow to it. I have used a red pearlescent card for my card blank onto which I have stamped & clear embossed the anniversary wishes from Francoise Read's Clear magis set "All Through the Year". For the main panel at the bottom left of the card I have passed a piece of silver Metal Quilting sheet through an embossing folder & then "aged" it with black Stazon. I've used the Silhouette Embossing punch to produce the heart duos from some red velvet paper, red card (to which I have then applied red Stickles) & some of the silver metal sheet. The border at the right hand edge of the card was produced with the Zig Zag Crafty edger cassette which creates some lovely & very useful cut outs. The border has been mounted onto a piece of siver pearlescent card which has been trimmed using the Fingerguard trimmer & a Scalloped blade. Now just add the gems to finish the design- Happy Anniversary!
