Happy 50th Anniversary Card & Gift....

Just yesterday, (Saturday) we were invited to a 50th Anniversary celebration party here in our neighborhood. So, earlier last week my little hands got busy creating a card that the bride and groom might enjoy? I also made a little something extra to give along with the card.  Since gifts were declined for this affair I wanted them to have a little something else to go along with the card. 

Since gold is the color used for the 50th celebration I found this tiny, tiny gold sticker (50) and attached to the center of the organza flower.  I used the heart die cut from Memory box called LaRue which is my favorite heart die.  The lace background is from Ellentian Cutting Dies Classic Collection  DC8002.

I wanted the card to look wedding-ish without going over board.  My little story I am sharing with you today is a bit unique.  This couple of 50 years were married secretly while she was still in high-school at the age of 16 and he only 19.  So.... I'm sure they didn't have many wedding cards as a remembrance back then?  So I am hoping that this one will be special to them?  The couple waited two years while waiting for Linda to finish high-school and then breaking the news to her parents.  Many Congratulations go out to Bunky and Linda for your  love and perseverance and relationship lasting through the years.  You make a wonderful couple and great example to others.  Thanks so much.....we enjoyed sharing in your celebration.  It will be long remembered. 

I also took my embossing folder and embossed the envelope to add a more festive wedding look to it.

I earlier dashed off to buy some candies that had gold foil wrapping on them and placed them inside of a plastic pillow box that I had bought and saved from a scrap show for a quick need such as this.  I then wrapped a bow around it with tooling and added a pearl gold brad to the center and made a tag with gold embossing powder with the verse "Wishing you both a beautiful forever".  One more of my favorite stamps that I get a lot of use out of.  

Thanks for peeking.
