How has your week been? The weather hasn't been too bad down here in the south. Yesterday I was able to watch my husband giving a talk at a conference as it was streamed live. Isn't technology amazing. Well the weekend is nearly here and that can only be good.
There are two cards to show today. I needed to make two Sixtieth Wedding Anniversary cards one for my parents and one for a commission. At the craft fair last week I managed to get some beautiful sparkly card to use on both cards. The stone for a Sixtieth Anniversary is diamond so I wanted the cards to be sparkly.
I made this one first it is an 8" x 8" card I used pale blue and sparkly card to make the mats.
I made this one second and I like this one better. This time the layers were made with a darker blue, pale blue and sparkly card.
I used this tiny (but useful) Sue Wilson die to make the lacey effect on the card I cut lots of them from pearly white card.
This is how the die looks when it is cut it is very detailed and pretty.
The sentiment was cut with some Britannia dies.
I haven't decide which will be the commision card and which will be my parents card. For my parents I have arranged for them to receive and message from the Queen. I have to say that once I had a scan of my parents wedding certificate it was a very easy process.
I would like to enter these cards into Pixie's Snippets Playground week 184 all the white card used was snippets.
I do hope that you have a good weekend and that you might be able to fit in some crafting.
