Today I'd like to share with you all a special card I made for an order by my neighbour.
She asked for a "wow" card to help the recipients celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary, which is diamond. She did mention that their favorite film is High Society and the song they danced to at their wedding all those years ago was True Love by Bing Crosby & Grace Kelly. They still ask for it at every event. For those that don't know he sings it to her on a yacht and she is wearing pink and he in sailor blue.
So here is what I made for her..
I cut the base card using my Cricut using the cartridge Paper Lace. Then I cut the blue paper 1/4 inch less. The pink is 3/4 less than the base card.
I've added the heart banner and backed it with a bit of blue and the verse is from the song and I mounted that on to a blue cardstock. I added the deep cream lace and on to that I added one of my favorite banners and wrapped around that a sparkly sheer ribbon but not before it was threaded through a diamante ribbon slider.
The flowers are added on top of the heart leaf spray which is cut out of pale green. I added a hat pin but added a few beads first, the cotton reel is an idea I lifted from Tracy Payne the owner of Crafteezee-shop and a wonderful cardmaker to boot. I fussy cut out a few boats and added them around the card along with some diamante gems. The heartfelt wishes I added on a double mat to the top to add some height. The 60 was also cut by the Cricut too. I made two sizes of tassel using both the blue and pink papers.
Thank You for stopping by today, I hope you liked what you saw? If so please leave a comment.
