50th Wedding Anniversary


A friend needed a card for a 50th Wedding Anniversary so I offered to make one of my cards that I love to make... This is actually 6 folded cards, stacked and bound with the Zutter BIA. I've added a lot of ribbons on the wire, and each page is embossed, die cuts are added, there are pockets to hold messages and sentiments, ...the die cuts come from Storybook cart and the sentiments are from Celebrations, Wedding Solutions. I've added jewels and more ribbons, and my little Cuttlebug embossing folders were very very busy. I didn't photograph every page but these will give an idea of how the card looked.
The last page is much like this page. It has a pocket to hold a tag that is a "to and from" tag. This page has a pocket to slip a lovely anniversary sentiment into.
My favorite part of the whole card is the front cover. I used the Fleur de Lis Spellbinders die as a base for the Wedding couple to stand on. The edges of the folded cards were punched with the large scallop punch. I love the effect...







TFL.... These are great fun to make and well received.
