Ruby 40th Wedding Anniversary Z - Fold Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

I hope you had a good weekend and are ready for the week ahead. We had a busy weekend. On Friday we set up my small table at the Hampshire Open Studios event. On Saturday my husband worked on the talk he was going to give at his party. I made the house generally ship shape. Then on Sunday it was the big tea party at our local tea shop. We had a lovely time and the food and drink was appreciated as was the talk. Now it is all back to normal. Although there is a bit more cake in the house than there usually is.

When we came back from Lille I had a 40th Wedding Anniversary card that I had to make as we were going to the party. I had been  waiting for a photo and I didn't receive one. So I had to adapt  my design.


I decided on the Z - Fold card design. I did all the scoring on my Hougie board. All the mats and layers were cut with the guillotine. The Happy Anniversary die is a Signature die. The 40 was cut with an X- Cut die set. 


The heart and flourish dies are all from the John Next Door Range. The letters were made with a Tonic die set. 


Here I am beside my little table. It didn't take long to set up. I am going back to help with the teas and coffees tomorrow so I will be able to check up on it.  


Our friends liked their card and we enjoyed the party. I met lots of people that I have heard of over the years. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Have a great week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Glad the weekend went well Jackie. Love the 40th Anniversary card. Your table looks good. Hope you have some sales. I have been getting ready for my exhibition at the local library, which was booked last year, then got an email this morning to say that the council is closing the library for 6 weeks from 16th Sept and my exhibition is for the month of October so it is cancelled. I already have one booked for next October and there aren’t any dates vacant in between. Never mind.😟
