Golden weddings

Hi everyone - well I have escaped into my craft room for the first time in nearly a week.  We have had visitors here for the last 5 days and they've just gone home, so inbetween all the washing and ironing I thought I'd share a couple of special cards I was asked to make for a Golden Anniversary.

My friend Debbie asked me to make a special card for her Mum & Dad's Golden Wedding Anniversary and also one suitable for her Dad to give her Mum.  Here's what I came up with.

This is for her Mum & Dad:

I've tried making card stands from card before now but find they don't actually hold the card very well unless it is light so I had in my stash some small black plastic stands (originally for paperweights) and got Tony to spray one gold - I was so pleased with it as it matched the card perfectly and was much more sturdy than the card ones.  I feel he may have a few more to do!!! lol

This one is for her Mum from her Dad:

Well, just off to load up the washing machine again!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Happy crafting.



  1. These two beautiful cards are sure to be treasured. Great idea with the stands too - brainwave.

  2. Beautiful with a capital B .
