Golden Anniversary

I am pleased with the outcome of this card. My aunt asked me to make an anniversary card for some dear friends of hers and I will be honest with you I was a little baffled, I find that anniversary cards are hard to make (kind of like sympathy cards). So I set forth on some ideas and thought keep it simple and of course "golden". I cut the numbers and the Happy Anniversary with a cricut (thanks Jen- that was a great lesson!) out of just a very light gold color because I didn't want it to clash with the white or scream "cheap!" The rest is done with the cuttlbug folders. I did layer it with some foam so it has some depth to it as well. Inside I have made a little piece that goes in that is white, layered on the gold and has a little flower again in the corner. Well that is it for today- short and sweet and to the point! Have a great day!

Hi Heidi,

Gorgeous card love you gorgeous detail and embossing!

Thanks for your visit to my blog. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the mixing of the mica in glimmer mists. I was told the complete opposite to you by my teacher and that if you didn't mix it that the mica would get clogged in the bottle ha ha! Guess it depends on the teacher eh. Still I have never had a clogged nozzle so far and had them for years so perhaps they are both right!
