Hi everyone! Today I'd like to showcase a 50th Anniversary card I made for my dearest friend and her husband. They have shared 50 cherished years together. I wish you could see the shimmer of the champagne in the champagne glasses. It really is striking.
The base card was made using GKD white card stock. I layered it with gold glitter paper and put it aside. Meanwhile I prepared my focal panel by positioning a die cut heart, made with Memory Box Bingham Heart, and determining where to have my sentiment and their names placed. Nex,t I printed my sentiment and names via computer, positioned the heart die cut and adhered it.
The champagne glasses, cut with a Die-Namics die, were assembled using white card stock, vellum and gold glitter paper. Before adhering the glasses, I cut the number 50 from gold glitter paper and adhered it beneath the heart. I was then able to position the champagne glasses in the manner shown in the photo.
For the interior of my card, I chose to die cut two other champagne glasses (from Cottage Cutz) and placed them around the verse. Here is a photo of one of the glasses:
That completed my project. I was very pleased with the end result. I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it. Thanks for stopping by and come back again and again. Until then, make it a great day!
