A friend at work asked for a card for her in-laws Diamond Wedding Anniversary, Wow! Anyone who has been married for 60 years deserves a special card.
I knew what I want to do and found the perfect template at the clipart fairy.
Resized it to fit an 8 inch square card base. I used interactive version so I could add my own wording.
The script used is Scriptina and after it was printed on to century pearl card which gives a beautiful sheen
I overwrote it with a quickie glue pen and then sprinkled on irridescent glitter The pages are edged with glitter.
I used ribbon from my stash and flowers and diamonte ribbon sliders both from Wild Orchid Crafts. Finally made a box using my trusty old Crafter companion board cut a window in it so the card could be seen through the acetate and decorated the box with a few more flowers
. As usual my photgraphy cant capture the sheer glitteryness of the wording or the irridecsent sheen of the paper. I am really pleased how it turned out as I wanted something special to celebrate such a huge occasion.
