Lifetime of love

Happy Friday and another 3 day weekend for Canadians. It's the Civic Holiday here  on Monday.  No plans for me, just love hanging around the house and outdoors.  Maybe I'll make a few cards, all depends on the weather.

I was asked a couple of weeks ago by my friend at work to make a 60th anniversary card for her In-laws, and this is what I came up with.

Not much explaining on this one, just a lot of die cutting.  The rolled flower is made with a MFT die, glittered the edges after it was made, added some glitter and then popped a pearl in the middle.

For the '60' I cut the numbers 3 x's.  2 out of card stock and the top layer from gold glitter paper, then glued all 3 together to give it some dimension.

Stamp - Justrite - ever after antique labels one
paper -  cream linen, Graphic 45 - baby & bride collection
dies - spellbinders - A2 filigree delight, MFT - rolled flower die, Quickutz - Jacqueline alphabet set
misc - silk ribbon, leaves from Wild Rose, pearls.

Thanks for your visit today, have a wonderful day!

Gorgeousness! Wow! And 60 years? That's a lot of history. A lifetime of love, for sure. Love that sentiment, and love all the beautiful die cuts and soft peachy color. You sure had all the right stuff for this card request! Enjoy your three day weekend. I know you're looking forward to it, and I'm looking forward to any stamping that may come out of it!

This looks just the right snazzy for a couple who have made 60 years. What a milestone and what a treasure for them.
