Always and Forever Golden Wedding Anniversary Card

by Joanne James5. June 2014 21:30

Today I'm doing one of those things that is somewhat dangerous if you're a cardmaking blogger and your intended recipients follow your blog - I'm blogging a card before I've sent it! So Barbara (affectionately known as 'Aunty Barbie' to Rebecca!) if you're reading this before Sunday - look away now!!!

Sandie's theme challenge over at The Paper Players this week is to create a card around the theme of love, weddings or anniversaries, and as I made a golden wedding anniversary card this week for a very special couple, I couldn't resist linking it up to share it. Here is my card:

This card is a riot of gold products - 6 to be precise (or 7 if you count the gold Encore stamping inside, but that's mean because you can't see that!) Can you tell what they all are? I used Brushed Gold for my card base, then adhered a piece of Shimmer White cardstock to it, and a piece of gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum to the top of that. I dry embossed the ampersand out of gold foil sheet and then fussy cut before adhering to my vellum top layer. I then made two flags out of Shimmer white card stock and heat embossed them with 'Always' and 'Forever' in gold embossing powder; these were both partial stamps from the 'This Day Forward' stamp set. I then popped the flags onto dimensionals and mounted them on opposing sides just touching the top and bottom of the ampersand. Lastly, I added a gold baker's twine bow and threaded this with a strand of gold sequins.

I think this card is just lovely - a fitting way to celebrate 50 years of marriage, which is some achievement in my book. Here's to Barbara and Bob and many more happy years together.

Back tomorrow with another card; until then, happy stampin'!

Oh Joanne, this is GORGEOUS!  I love the riot of gold and the way you've separated the sentiments with the ampersand.  It's clean, elegant and fabulous--just like the couple who earned it, I'm sure!  So glad you joined us at The Paper Players!

Thank you Sandy - the cutting out of the ampersand was a little tricky but so worth it! Glad you like my golden card.
