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 🙂

This is one of the cards we will make at my Summer Mini and Sale-a-bration launch party on Monday night. It took me only 20 minutes to create this card and I’m already in love with the Sale-a-bration Congrats stamp set!  What a lovely Anniversary card to give to someone special (and I know just who I’m sending mine too!).

There is still time to book your place at the party, so email me today! Remember, it’s FREE!
