Wedding Anniversaries are to be celebrated and on the 14th February my parents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Congratulations Mum & Dad on this amazing milestone – the love you have for each other shows through everyday.
This is the card that I made them. I CASED (copy and share everything) it from Audrey DaCruz who had CASED it from another demo Mary Fish. I changed mine a bit as I didn’t have any current ‘heart’ framelits.
A 60th wedding anniversary is ‘diamond’ but the only ‘diamonds’ on here are the three Rhinestones – each one representing 20 years :).
I don’t normally do cards with lots of layers but I loved how the original card looked so went with the same layout/design.
A couple of the layers have been cut using the fantastic Rectangle Stitched Framelits – if you haven’t ordered these yet you NEED to :). I have used them so much and there is so much you can do with them – make them into squares, create extra sizes with an additional run through the Big Shot. The bottom piece of DSP was cut using the largest die, the banner measures 5cm wide and the end was shaped using the Banner Triple Punch (another must have tool). The Merry Merlot cardstock was cut using the 4th smallest die and the DSP square in the middle measures 7cm x 7cm. The hearts were die cut with the retired Hearts Framelits (the original design used the new Be Mine Stitched Framelits from page 6 of the Occasions Catalogue).
The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set – also in the Occasions Catalogue – and stamped in Merry Merlot. The DSP square and stamped heart have been adhered with dimesionals to give the card some height even though there are lots of layers.
Thank you Mum and Dad for giving us and so many others a wonderful example of marriage. Later this week we are all heading to Cirque du Soleil to celebrate.
Until next time …
