40 Years and going strong!
My mom and dad celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary on January 10th and it was so amazing celebrating that milestone with them. It takes a very special couple to make it to 40 years and we are all holding on for the 50th! :-) Here is a pic of the happy couple and the card that I made for them.
I embossed the front of the card using my Cuttlebug french script embossing folder and my Sizzix BigShot. Then I took Distress Ink in Scattered Straw and blended it to give the card some color and texture. On the Sizzix Decorative Heart die, I colored it with Gold acryllic paint then sprayed gold glimmer mist, then added Versamark and clear embossing powder then heat set it. I hand made the paper flower using Tim Holtz's grungepaper flower technique. I used regular white cardstock, build the flower per Tim's instructions on his blog. I then sprayed the flower with Tattered Leather and Gold glimmer mist. I heat set it. Then with my finger, I applied distressed Stickles in Scattered Straw, then heat set again. The chipboard plate embellie is by Making Memories, from a wedding collection. I printed out the sentiment on my computer, then punched it out using my SU! Wide Oval punch. I then edged it with Distress Ink in Scattered Straw.
Hope you like the card and thanks for stopping by! :-)
