Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop - Wedding Dreams

Welcome to this month's Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop and the theme for this month is Wedding Dreams. 

This whole Mediterranean Incentive Trip is a step back in time to our very own Honeymoon, which was spent in the beautiful Tuscan Countryside. We have sadly not been able to return to Italy since and this October we celebrate 7 wonderful years of marriage, so we very much look forward to returning there in May as part of the cruise. I think for me, it makes this cruise all the more special. 

For those of you who follow my blog on a regular basis, you'll have read how we as a family have an abundance of Milestone Birthday's to celebrate within our close friends and family this year. Well it's not just Birthday's that are standing at milestone years, but also Wedding Anniversaries, with no less than four 25th Wedding Anniversaries to celebrate before the end of July. 

With Wedding Dreams being the theme for this month, I felt that a 25th Wedding Anniversary card would be perfectly fitting. Twenty Five years is quite an achievement these days and although it should be shouted from the roof tops, I wanted to create a card that was a little understated and a little different. I therefore decided to stamp up the floral image from Awesomely Artistic and disguise the number 25 within it. Can you see it now? ...

I stamped the image for a second time onto Whisper White cardstock, before die cutting and stacking it up on several, several layers of Pear Pizzazz die cut numbers.

I think this photo here, shows more easily how the numbers are disguised. The flash of green is just picked up from a side on view. A subtle flash of colour that helps to add depth and dimension.

The silver foil boarder of this card and the silver leaf give a gentle reminder of this Silver Wedding Anniversary. 

I hope you like what I've shared with you today and can perhaps see how you'd recreate a stacked up image like this for yourself.
