Hi. Todays the day!! Congratulations to my lovely Mum and Dad on their 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary. I have been crafting for this special day for the last couple of months, and today I would like to share the card I made for my family to give them.
This card was my first proper attempt at using gilding flakes. I backed the Scandinavian background and the Regal Striplet dies by Sue Wilson with a double sided adhesive sheet and adhered Cosmic Shimmer's Egyptian Gold gilding flakes on top to make my background. This was matted onto layers of mirri card and plain cardstock. I cut the Delicate Daisies - Open Petals by Sue Wilson to make three flowers - the little centre circles have also been given the gilding flake treatment. The Celebrate die by Crafters Companion, Sara Davies Signature Collection - Together Forever was cut from gold mirri. The '50' also cut in mirri is Memory Box - Parker Numbers.
I am so pleased with the final result and love the effect of the gilding flakes.
Today is also one of my Nieces Birthdays, and the card I made for her will been shown in the week. I am looking forward to spending the day with all the family, celebrating this special day with our wonderful Mum and Dad.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a lovely day whatever you are doing
