Hi Stampers. If you were on my blog a few days ago you saw the wedding card that I made with the Bloomin’ Heart thinlit die. I chose to make a 5oth wedding anniversary with some of the same supplies. For this card I added the Number of Years stamps set and the Large Numbers Framelit dies.
This card starts with a Very Vanilla card base (8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″). Next up is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of gold glimmer paper – followed by the 5″ x 3.75″ layer of Very Vanilla card stock that has been run through the Big Shot with the Bloomin’ Heart thinlit die.
For the focal point, I cut the 50 out of gold foil paper and attached the numbers with mini glue dots. I then stamped the “anniversary” with frame and the “th” with frame onto scraps of Very Vanilla card stock with Versamark ink and used Gold stampin’ emboss powder and the heat tool to heat emboss these and then cut them out with the co-0rdinating framelits. These, too, were attached to the card front with mini glue dots.
On the interior of the card I heat embossed the phrase “congratulations” (from the retired stamp set, Bravo) in gold. Anyone who has made it 50 years in a marriage deserves a great deal of congratulations! My grandparents made it to their 5oth and beyond, while my parents enjoyed 40 years of marriage before my dad passed. I’m very proud to say that my husband and I are on year 27 and going strong.
I hope that you are surrounded by happily married couples and can put my idea to use. I’ve included my list of supplies with links to my store below. Remember to use this months hostess code (AFX66EX6) for your chance to win the hostess credit for May.
