A special celebration will take place later this month, but sadly we are unable to attend. We will actually be out of the country on that day. I definitely wanted them to know we will be thinking of them, however, so I made a special card, which they should have received by now.
I die-cut the "50th" out of the same gold metallic CS and adhered it between happy and anniversary.
I stamped this rose by Stampin' Up onto some vellum cardstock three times with Versamark ink. These images were all heat-embossed with my gold embossing powder and fussy-cut.
I wanted a multi-layer rose, so I cut the center section from one, the middle tier around the center section from another and, finally, the entire rose. I then layered one on top of the other, bending the petals up a bit to add some dimension.
I happened to have some gold leaves in my stash, so I added a couple of these to complete my rose.
I used a flourish die by Sizzix to cut two small flourishes for the top. I was able to intersect the flourishes perfectly in the center. I put some double-sided adhesive tape on the vellum behind the flourishes to adhere my vellum panel to the inside of my card. You don't want to use liquid glue on vellum because it wrinkles the vellum as it dries. (Don't ask me how I know that!!)
Well, that's my card for today. Once again, I want to wish my sister and brother-in-law a
HAPPY GOLDEN WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
