JAI 388 Just add glitter - 25 happy years

This week's new Just Add Ink challenge is...

Such an easy challenge, especially around Christmas as I love some glitter on my Christmas cards. Surprisingly though, my card is not for Christmas. I made it for my darling man, to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.

Who said you can't add glitter to a masculine card? Not me! I've cut retired black glimmer paper for the 25 using the Large Numbers dies. Stampin' Up! so needs to bring it back as it's fabulously sparkly. The silver foil hearts (Swirly Scribbles dies) add more shine.

I love the, teamed with the bold check paper. You may be surprised that it's from the Merry Little Christmas paper pack. It includes black & white designs on one side of the paper & olive-white-black designs on the other side. Many designs like this one are useful for all year round crafting. Check out all the prints in the supply list below.

I like the combination of the curved lines of the numbers & hearts teamed with the straight lines of the check.

So that's how I've added glitter to my project. I hope you enjoyed seeing it. Head over to the Just Add Ink blog to see how all the team got glittery.

Inky wishes, Di

Congratulations on your 25th Anniversary Di, that's an awesome achievement! And such a fabulous card to celebrate too. The black, white and silver details are perfect and I love how your sentiment fits so beautifully amongst the gingham too - so clever! xx
