60th Wedding Anniversary

Good morning to you all

Hope you are having a lovely weekend, I am having quite a relaxing one, for a change, so I decided to show you a card I made a couple of weeks ago for an order.

So without to much waffling, here it is


This is a Diamond Wedding Anniversary Card and it is an 8" square

I started by using my Spun Sugar distress ink and colouring my background layers, there were two of them on the front and two inside, so my arm was aching by the time I had finished, but I still needed to distress the edges of the grand circle and also the white ribbon, so I persevered.

I ran the white top layer through one of my favourite embossing folders and lightly distressed the edges too, before creating my triple layer double bow and adding the ribbon around the top layer.  I used a grand fancy circle to layer the sentiment topper on and then distressed the edges of this too before running a ring of lace under and around.  I used my foam to raise this from the card.

I decorated by adding tiny rhinestones in all the spaces on the embossing and finally added the florals and foliage to complete.

Loving this classy style of card, works so well for special occasions.

okay off to deliver a birthday card (handmade of course) and present

but before I head off I would like to enter the following challenges

ArtbyMiran - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy - Ribbon and Lace
Polka Doodles - Ribbon and Lace
Really Reasonable Ribbons - Flowers and Ribbon

Hugs
