Happy 50th anniversary!
How impressive to have 50th wedding anniversary!! Even my father passed away before they hit 50th anniversary!... When I read my house mouse online friend's post in house mouse yahoo group I belong to, back in February, I wanted to make a card for them :) I wanted to make a card a bit fancy for celebrating 50th anniversary, but since I'm mailing this to Canada from USA (BUT, long way from here, Guam USA), I didn't want to send anything too thick or too fragile. I decided to make a FANCY front, and used Glitter lace background technique (ok, I'm not sure how it's called, really, but learned it somewhere a while back...). The background LACE paper I MADE is the one I used that technique. So, it's not the real LACE I layered on the card stock. I used similar design paper from MS holiday/valentine's day paper stack for layering the main image & the sentiment. I used glitter glue (yellow) on sunflower petals, randomly, but it's a little hard to see. White little punched out hearts on the right corner & layering paper underneath of glittered lace background paper has also shimmer in them but it's hard to see it on the picture...but very similar simmer to that white ribbon and that's the reason I chose that ribbon, to match. The sentiment stamp is old Holly Pond Hill collection. The number "50" is from alphabet set of Lawn Fawn. Surprisingly, the font MATCHED with the Happy Anniversary Stamp! And the size is also perfect that "50" being a bit larger! How exciting! lol! I wrote a little "th" by the number "50". :-) I used pearl pen to make "her" pearl necklace :-) Other pearls are store bought; white & red, both. I placed a little heart gem inside of the number "0". Yes, as you noticed, I FINALLY got my C-plate in the mail!! yeah! :-) It's so nice to "Cuttlebug" again! lol :-)
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Have a great week! :-)
