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.
