50th Wedding Anniversary Card

We were invited to events celebrating my bunko buddy, Dede, and her husband Arlan's 50th wedding anniversary.  So of course, I needed to make them a card!

The numbers dies are retired but I'll never give them up!  I use them all the time!

All the details:

  • The Very Vanilla Thick card base is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
  • The Gold Foil piece is 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
  • Very Vanilla 5" x 3 3/4"
  • Scrap of Very Vanilla

To save thickness and to use my gold foil paper better, I first cut it out to size and then I cut out the 5 and 0 plus the banner out of the middle.  I then took the large Very Vanilla piece and embossed it with the Country Floral embossing folder.  I attached the embossed piece to the gold foil "frame" and added those to the card base.

I cut out the Stitched Oval and stamped the sentiment in Versamark and then covered with Gold Embossing Powder and heat embossed.  After attaching the sentiment to the gold foil banner, I attached the banner to the card front with dimensionals.  Attach the numbers using mini dimensionals.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black.

After completing my card and taking my photos, I decided it needed a little something more--so I added gold pearls to some of the flower centers.  It really made it more special!
