Textured Golden Anniversary Card



Today's card is a celebration of love - 50 years of it to be exact. It was an order from a friend who wanted something 'simple but touchy feely' as the lady in the couple it is intended for has very poor eyesight. So I concentrated on texture...



 I've used a linen embossed card for the card base - it's really heavy (300gsm) and is lovely to work with. On a raised square of the same card, I've used some gorgeous dull gold textured wallpaper (a sample from a DIY shop that cost about £40 a roll!) and added a wooden heart coated in white glitter. The sentiment is computer generated using Tempus Sans font and matted using the same wallpaper.

Is it 'too' simple? I don't know... but I'm really pleased with the way it feels!

I've entered this into the following challenges:

As You Like It Challenge - CAS or Fussy? Definitely CAS - I love the clean lines and graphic feel to CAS cards - even my attempts at the 'fussy/floral/layered' cards are CAS!
Crafting For All Seasons - Have A Heart
CASology - Love
Papertake Weekly - Hearts and/or Flowers
Craft For The Craic - Anniversary
Muse - card inspiration

 
 

Thanks for looking!
