Golden Anniversary Card

Golden Anniversary Card

My in-laws are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary today, and of course I had to make them a card! I wanted to use big chipboard numbers and luckily I still had a five and a zero in my stash of retired Simon Lower On Board chipboard. The numbers were first covered with Whisper White Craft ink. When they were dry, I inked them up with VersaMark ink and embossed them with Iridescent Ice powder which made them very sparkly.

The background was created with the large flourish from Baroque Motifs, gold embossed on brushed gold card stock. I tied a gold metallic ribbon into a bow and added a little vellum banner to the card. The vellum was adhered to a gold punched heart, which was placed on top of the zero with a dimensional.

Thanks for stopping by!
