Congratulations ...


... wishing you happiness on this your special day.

This is a card that would be suitable for a wedding, an anniversary or even a special anniversary, such as a golden - could add 50.

The embossed strip was created with the folder that came with my eBosser - the white paper is pearlescent, which doesn't show up here and the card blank has a bit of a golden sheen to it. Everything else taken from stash including the Craftime flowers.


This is for:

Lawnscaping 55: embossing
City crafter 153: anything goes (sort of) - I chose 'embossing folder'
2 sisters 137: sparkle n shine

Another vintage girl


Some more images like the one on the previous card, simply mounted on to a linen effect card blank with the addition of more little flowers with pearls.

Colours are for Dynamic duos 46: deep pink and your choice (paler pink, plus neutrals).

Forever friends 58: girls

Another Diamond Wedding card


Another diamond wedding anniversary card - this time using some silver and black diamond card as the background with a wide strip of matt silver card down the left side, with a  holographic silver die cut church (made it very difficult to get a photo). The addition of a Craftwork cards sentiment and Craftime white and silver flowers and the card was done. Numbers 60 were added after the photo. I wasn't sure whether this one was wanted so I didn't put it on till I knew - this card could have equally been used for a silver wedding anniversary.

Diamond Wedding Anniversary


A couple of weeks ago I was asked to make two or three Diamond Wedding Anniversary cards (wow! 60 years of marriage), so this is one that I made. I remembered that a few years ago I bought some pearlisted card with large embossed diamonds, so that seemed just right for the background. The organza ribbon with gems is from Hobby Craft. The sentiments and the glittered white die cut of the wedding couple have been in my stash for ages. So this was an opportunity to bring some older supplies into play.

I actually added '60' in silver to the right hand corner, but had already taken the photo before that and the card has now gone, so too late to update.
