My friend Jill and her husband celebrated their Ruby Wedding anniversary this week, so I wanted to make a special card for them. I started by stamping the beautiful medallion background stamp from Stampin’ Up in cherry cobbler ink onto very vanilla smooth cardstock…
There were some areas that didn’t stamp fully but that added to the look I wanted and gave it a vintage feel. I then mounted it onto a cherry cobbler A5 card base.
I added some gorgeous victoria crochet trim, pleated across the card and stamped the sentiment underneath. The numbers and 2 sizes of hearts were die cut with my timeless type junior alphabet dies run through my big shot machine, and then adhered with stampin’ dimensionals.
Finally, I used 3 sizes of adhesive pearls on the card, giving a luxurious feel.
Jill and her hubby are going on holiday back to where they had their honeymoon… this time to enjoy visiting there with some money in their pockets – bless! But how romantic is that? Still in love after 40 years of marriage – bliss.
