A colleague asked me for a bit of a rush card last week for her parents who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and had told her that they didn't want any fuss, however her brother and sisters had all been and got presents unknown to my colleague and she felt as if she was the only one who had taken them at their word and not made a special effort so the card was a last minute token from her to celebrate their big day.
I had a copy of a picture taken of them on their wedding day 50 years ago and printed it from my (not very good) inkjet printer, punched out their heads and inked them with distress ink to give them a bit of a vintage look. The backing paper is My Mind's Eye and I printed the numerals onto gold card then cut them out adding gold Stickles round the edges for a glitzy finish. I also used a piece of gold glitter cardstock behind my die cut border at the bottom for some extra sparkle and added a little bouquet of flowers from Wild Orchid and a sentiment also from My Mind's Eye to finish it off.
