Botanical Golden Anniversary

We have some dear friends who will be celebrating their fiftieth wedding anniversary soon! Fifty Years!! That is a major accomplishment! I can't believe I'm old enough to have friends who are celebrating their Golden Anniversary! When did that happen?

I wanted a special card to celebrate this momentous occasion so I turned to the Botanical Builders Framelits and the Large Numbers Framelits to help me out. It had to be in white and gold because the 50th is Golden and weddings are white and I wanted to really highlight the number 50 somehow.

  • The card base is the Whisper White Thick cardstock, which provides a sturdier base that will hold up to all the embellishments on this card.
  • The heart and the number 50 are die cut several times each in Whisper White and once each in Gold Foil Sheet. The layers are glued together with the Gold Foil being the last layer on top. This gives them a thickness that gives them more prominence on the page. The Sweetheart Punch was used for the heart layers.,
  • I used the Botanical Builder Framelits to die cut the flowers and the leaves. This set creates the most beautiful floral display of any that we've had so far. If you want an elegant card look, this is the framelit set to get. But, you can also get a fun, tropical look as well, depending on the colours you use, so I totally recommend this as a *Have-to-Have* product. You won't be sorry.
  • The elegant look is continued with the Gold 5/8" Satin Ribbon, just a simple length of it tucked over the edges of the Whisper White front panel.
Enjoy your weekend! I will be spending it with this little guy to help him celebrate his fourth birthday!
