50th Wedding Anniversary Card

Margaret Tanner and her dear husband, Laurie, celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary recently, and being a cardmaker, I made a card for them.

I started by creating an easel card. This is done by folding your card into half, as you would normally do, then fold the front into half again.

Using Le Petit Jardin design paper, as well as the Happy Anniversary Hotfoil Stamp, I foiled the greeting onto the paper I was going to use for the front of the card.

To get the shapes for the ‘book card’ I used a die made for this purpose. As you can see from the photograph, there are several layers to this.

Once I’d foiled my card, I added “50” using dies and glitter paper, then added some matching flowers to the top left hand side.

I added another piece of design paper from the Le Petit Jardin range to the inside as shown above. I added my main (foiled) image to the easel card in the appropriate place, then added matching flowers to allow the card to stand up. (See below)

Above is the finished card. It was a little fiddly to make, but totally worth it.

My friends absolutely loved it, along with the envelope card, which I had made a short while ago to go along with this card.

For those interested, here are the Couture Creations products I used:

CO725434 – Le Petit Jardin 12×12 Paper Pad

ULT158109 – Hotfoil Stamp – Happy Anniversary

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my creation! (If you need more information on how to make this, please comment and I’ll get back to you.)
