Happy Anniversary

June 20, 2019

My Mum and Dad celebrated their 65th Wedding Anniversary yesterday.  Such a milestone!  I am so lucky to have them living close by and to be able to spend time with them.   Anyway I thought I would share with you the card I made for them.  I began by embossing Gray Granite card using the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.    I cut one edge of Whisper White card using the edgelit from the Stitched Lace Dies, before cutting it with the background die in this set.  After I had die cut the whole piece, I then cut the opposite side of the Whisper White card with the edgelit, to give me a beautiful banner piece to go across the embossed Gray Granite card. I wrapped the Whisper White banner with the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon before attaching the panel to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I cut Petal Pink card using the large heart image in the Stitched Be Mine Dies as well as the smaller detailed heart.  I cut the large plain heart from Whisper White card using the same dies.  I used dimensionals to hold the outer Petal Pink heart and plain Whisper White heart together and attached it to the card front.  I attached the detailed heart to the centre of the Whisper White heart.  I cut the “65” from Petal Pink using some very old sizzix dies in my stash.  I stamped “happy” and “anniversary” from the Well Said stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Gray Granite ink. I punched the greetings using the Classic Label Punch and then trimmed the ends so that there is only a small amount of white space around the greetings.  The greetings are attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I embossed another piece of Gray Granite card using the Tufted 3d Embossing Folder.  I cut the scalloped border from Petal Pink card using the Stitched Be Mine Die.

I didn’t see them yesterday but I hope that Mum and Dad had a lovely day celebrating their Anniversary.

Bye for now,
