Golden Wedding Anniversary

I can post this Golden Wedding card on my blog now that the happy couple are home from holiday and the card has been opened.

I made the base card using a Spellbinders 'Happy Days' step die.  The embossing is an Xcut 'Small Polka Hearts' e/f using gold pearlised card.  It really is a lovely, delicate shade of gold.   For the flower and leaves, I used Sue Wilson 'Petite Forget Me Nots' and 'Windswept Grasses' dies.  The computer generated sentiments were layered on stitched label die cuts and raised up on foam tape.

This photo shows the card from a different angle, although the card doesn't look so yellowy IRL.  The hearts are from the Sue Wilson 'Mr and Mrs' set of dies. 

I am joining in the following challenges:


  1. this is so beautiful Liz, love the fold , the colour of card stock you used and those tiny hearts

  2. Whoa!! Liz, this is absolutely stunning!!! Love the color you used too. I'm sure the couple loved it and will treasure it forever.

  3. What a beautiful anniversary card Liz, I love the little embossed heart on the backing card.

  6. What a super Golden card - didn't realise there was a die around to cut that style. I recall making a bit of a hash when I tried this some years ago, might just have to invest!

    1. I used to try and cut mine by hand years ago too, but was never happy how they turned out. xx

  7. Darling card, style and colours are just magnificent.xx

  8. So sunny and festive! And a great shape! Hugs, Gerrina
