Golden (50th) Wedding Anniversary Cards

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

Good Afternoon. I hope you are having a good day. It is bright and sunny here today. I have already been out this morning. I do like to get out for a walk most days. This weekend we are visiting both sets of parents. I also need to sort some things out for my sister. Sunday will be a quiet day. On Monday we will be collecting my cards from the Hampshire Open Studios event. I have sold a few cards and I have received two commissions not too bad really. I do hope I get asked to participate again next year.

There is a very special couple at our church. They are in their 70s and they run a lot of activities for older people and people with dementia. Today is their 50th Wedding Anniversary. I just had to make them a card to celebrate.

I went with a gold and white theme. 

Here is the detail of the Oakham Lattice die set from the John Next Door range. You can always tell when I have used John Next Door dies as the floor is covered in lots of little bits. The sentiment and numbers are Crafter's Companion dies. The pearls made a nice addition to the design. 

This is one of the commissions I was asked to make. It is for the same couple that I my card was made for. This card used the Butterfly Heart Dies from the John Next Door range. I just love how you get so many butterflies you can use. 

That's all from me this week. I will be back after the weekend. I do hope that you have a good one. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting
