Hi friends...

I thought today I'd share a card I made for some friends for their 60th anniversary!!  Wow... isn't that wonderful?  60 years.  Congratulations to Jo and Bill.

I wanted a fancy and elegant card for them... I know it's fancy but not sure how elegant.  Well, I guess it is.  I used my Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles for the base and layers of the card which is a cream color (and I don't know what brand as it was one of the few 12 x 12's in my stack.  After folding the paper to 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 I ran it through the big shot with the die placed almost to the top, but not quite.  That allowed the card to still have a 'hinge' at the top.  More layers from the Rectangles were cut out and sponged with Blushing Bride (with the dies still in place).  The center oval is Spellbinders Floral Ovals and I used an old Stampin' Up sentiment 'love' from Wonderful Words (retired).

I added a few rhinestone basic jewels to the corners.  The flowers were from Michaels (I think) and started out white satin.  I wanted them pink so I used the dauber and Blushing Bride to tint them.  Of course I didn't have the right size envelope so SU's envelope maker to the rescue!  I love that tool - so handy.  I lined the envelope too.  I sure hope they like it.

Back soon .... you too?

Until then, 

happy stamping!!!
