Happy 45th Anniversary

At the end of this month I have been invited to help celebrate the 45th wedding anniversary of a close cousin of a friend of mine.

I felt she and her husband deserved a very special card, so I pulled out my embossing folders, embossing powder, ribbon, stamps, and I made some very special flowers for this card.

 To take this picture I placed the card and matching envelope in a clump of white geraniums.  I had difficulty getting the right lighting conditions inside.

The card base is Powder Pink embossed with the Spark embossing folder.  This folder was inked with Powder Pink ink prior to putting it through the Big Shor resulting in a pink background with white raised areas. A swipe with the ink pad across this embossed piece and the white raised areas were now pink.

The center of the card is comprised of two matted panels overlapping each other.  The panel at the back is Whisper White embossed with the new Striped Scallop Texture Embossing folder; the front panel is the lovely Petal Promenade DSP Bothe are matted with Powder Pink card stock

Both panels are adhered to the card front, overlapping each other and slightly off setting them.

Near the bottom I added a strip of Powder Pink which has a strip of card stock punched with the Decorative Ribbon punch.  I then added some Whisper White polka dot Organza ribbon and tied it in a bow on the right side.

The sentiment, from Better Together, was embossed in Silver and punched with the 2 1/2" circle punch.  The numbers "45" were stamped  from the retired "Metro Type Alphabet" set, embossed in Silver and fussy cut. The circle was adhered to the card front using dimensionals.

The flowers were stamped, colored with blendabilites, die cut using Beautiful Layers thinlets, shaped and then had Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds added to each.  Three leaves were also stamped, colored and due cut.

Once dry the flowers were added to the upper right sentiment circle with the leaves added as shown on the card.

Oh, I also embossed the flap of the envelope.
