My Mother-in-law's sister (and brother-in-law) are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary next Saturday and I wanted to make a card for them. Fifty years is a BIG deal! My parents celebrate their 58th anniversary this year (my hubby and I will celebrate our 20th). And I think it is important to congratulate these kind of milestones. It's not just like having a birthday (let's face it, aging doesn't necessarily require any input for you, aside from eating and breathing). But wedding anniversaries are a testament to perseverance, patience and love. So Bev and Don, this card and the heartfelt congratulations that accompany it - are all yours!
I saw a gorgeous card here and decided to change it up just a bit to give it a little more of a golden aura. So here's what I came up with:
Stamps - Papillion Potpourri, Memorable Moments
Paper - Whisper White, Brushed Gold
Ink - Versamark
Big Shot - Scallop Square BigZ Clear, Square Lattice EF
Tools and Accessories Elegant Butterfly Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Bird Builder Punch (leaves/stems), 21/2" Circle Punch, Gold Embossing Powder, Basic Pearls
I absolutely love how rich and golden this card turned out. The photo just doesn't do it justice, but hopefully you get the general idea. And I am certain Bev and Don will be tickled pink (or gold?) when this comes in the mail.
In the meantime - today is the last day of July which means the Reason To Smile promotion is going to be over in tomorrow. I hope everyone has put in their $60 order to get this beautiful and exclusive stamp set for only $5. If not, contact me and I can help you to have your own Reason To Smile!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Take care and God Bless,
