Golden Wedding Anniversary Card


I made this 50th wedding anniversary card for an article I wrote this week on personalized cards in a box that will be published early next year in Scrap and Stamp Arts. I created the card base with a gold paper that I embossed with a hearts embossing folder by Darice. I rounded all the corners on the box and attached hearts punched with heart punches by Martha Stewart and ek success. The "love" and "Happy Anniversary" are older stamps from Stampin' Up which I heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I die cut the 50 with my new Parker numbers from Memory Box. The flowers (Hero Arts) were heat embossed with gold embossing powder on clear and gold vellum, then cut out and layered on strips of acetate. The small heart flower die is from Lea'bilities. Here are some more photos showing all sides including the back where a special message could be written for the golden couple. Of course, this card in a box folds flat to mail in an A6 sized envelope.


I am entering this card in the Anniversary/Wedding challenge at Charisma Cardz and the Anything Goes challenge at Crafty Girls.
