An elegant anniversary card, which can be personalized for any year, is on the agenda for today. It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

For this week’s Theme Challenge PP557:  By the Numbers, sweet and talented LeAnne is challenging us to put a number on our card.  As I was needing a 50th Anniversary card, this challenge was perfect for me.  What about you? Birthday?  Anniversary? Something else entirely? I am so excited to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card is another example of letting gorgeous paper do all of the work.   Since this stunning floral pattern contains copper, silver and gold, I matted it onto silver and copper foil, and accented with gold. The Basic Gray panel was embossed with the Hammered Metal embossing folder, adding to the richness of the card. Even the die cut gold foil numbers were embossed for interest, using the the Tasteful Textile folder. An elegant Gold Shimmer ribbon bow and Gold Brushed Metallic Dots are the perfect finishing touches.
