Hello and thank you very much for stopping by to visit me, I really appreciate it!
On Saturday, it was my Brother and Sister-in-Law's (Lloyd and Margery) 50th Wedding Anniversary and here is the card I made for the awesome couple!
Its so hard to photograph mirror card but you get the idea! The purple card base is 7inch x 7inch and I added a gold mat. The beautiful diamond and heart piece is cut using Spellbinders Lovin' Diamonds which I glued to another piece of matching purple card. The glasses are made with a NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) die that came free with a magazine. I cut it out of the gold card twice and embossed them too. I trimmed the stems of the glasses so they would fit into the centre frame then I added the waste bubbles above the glasses. The little hearts were waste from the Spellbinders die cut and the '50' is cut using a very old die - I can't remember the make. The panel was then attached to the gold mat on the base card. I stamped Happy Anniversary on the inside. I was pleased with the gold and purple as it looks quite regal - perfect for the occasion! Its strange to make a card with no ink or stamping - its not something I do often.
I would like to enter Darnell's NBUS/April Fools Boo Boo Challenge - Darnell's challenges are always such fun and this one is double fun! You can enter something using a NBUS (never before used schtuff) of which we all have lots! Something you have made a 'boo boo' on and are happy to share or both! Mine is just the glasses which are NBUS. I must confess though that one year I did make Darren (my husband) his anniversary card with the wrong year on! Now that was a huge boo boo which, when he told me -(aaaaaargh!) had me changing it very swiftly! How silly did I feel! Please join in, its such fun! You can join in as many times as you like! Thank you Darnell, I love to play!
Once again, thank you for visiting me and have a good week. Take care! Christine xxx
