The Paper Players Challenge #122 - Silver Anniversary!

This week LeAnne is hosting at The Paper Players, & here is her fun challenge:-

This theme was perfect for the card I wanted to create:-

Firstly, I die-cut the word "years" with my new Typeset Alphabet Bigz die.  I adore working with this type of steel die, as you can cut such a range of materials with them.  I used three layers of glossy white chipboard sheet, to get these lovely, chunky letters:-

Next I created & digitally die-cut the "25" & the mat, which forms the base of the card.  The numerals were debossed with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder.

The "wonderful" has been silver embossed on a vellum banner, which has a pierced border.  To help the word stand out a little more, but still allow the numbers to show through, I layered extra vellum underneath the inner section of the banner.  All the vellum layers have been attached with glue dots (hidden under the rhinestones).

The rest of the DT have some awesome silver & gold projects to inspire you:-
