Let's craft and create challenge 116: wedding/wedding anniversary

This is my design card for Let's craft and create challenge 116: wedding/wedding anniversary. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

It so happens that recently I've been commissioned to make quite a few wedding or anniversary cards - in fact I have four more to make.

For this card I decided to make an easel. The frame at the top was from Kanban long ago. I printed the greeting and then used a todo letterpress to give the embossed effect, adding the flowers.

I covered the fancy edge with versamark and heat embossed with silver powder, then added the unknown paper (had it for ages and can't remember where it came from) with the added ribbon with sparkly rhinestones. A piece of ribbon wrapped and tied across the middle of the base and the hearts formed a stopper.

I added an identical frame at the back to neaten the card:
