Golden Wedding Anniversary

How special for a couple to reach their golden wedding anniversary … imagine, 50 years together! Just over a week ago, my cousin Lyndal (hello, Lyndal!!) came around to make a special card for her boyfriend’s parents on their 50th wedding anniversary at the end of this month. This is the card she made … isn’t it gorgeous! And very special, for being handmade, but also as a special keepsake for the golden couple 🙂

Lyndal used the background stamp En Francais, stamped in Sahara Sand. Next it was Baroque Motifs, Together Forever and Best Friends Numbers (retired) – all heat embossed using versamark with gold powder. The ribbon is not Stampin’ Up! … it was left over from my wedding invitations! And the paper is Whisper White and Stampin’ Up!’s gorgeous metallic gold! The final touch was three pearls from the Pretties Kit.

I’m afraid the photo (in poor light at night) doesn’t do the card total justice. I think Lyndal did a wonderful job … the card IRL is stunning and sure to be appreciated by the golden couple!

Thanks for looking 🙂

  1. Indeed she did a FAB job. It is an awesome card and shd be a treasured keepsake. The embossing is v v classy and the background stamp finishes it off perfectly.

  2. Thank you for the inspiration I needed to make a 50th anniversary card – my mojo and inspiration have been MIA for some time, and Google came to the rescue when I searched for that theme! Beautiful card, very classy indeed 🙂
