Hi all. About two weeks ago I did a Golden Wedding card and now I have one which I did for some great friends who have just had their Silver Wedding. For this card I have used my dies from Nellie Snellen Multi Frame Heart and Corners 1, and then Creative Expressions Sue Wilson dies Finishing Touches Classic Rose and Petite Vinery. Unfortunately Mirri card does not photograph well and tends to look like black, but in real life looks nice and shiny.
I used a snippet of white card about 1/2" smaller than the square base card and cut the corners and mounted this on to a piece of silver Mirri card just a fraction bigger. The hearts are lovely because the multi frame sets have both fancy edged and straight edged dies, so I cut two of each using snippets of white and silver Mirri card and mounted as you can see in the photo. For the centre white layer with the numbers on I pencilled around the inside of the smallest die and cut by hand.
For the flowers I used two different sizes of die and cut one bigger and two smaller flowers using some more snippets of white card, a slightly lighter weight card is easier to shape. I creased all the petals in the middle and sort of pinched them into shape, and the top layer I also removed one petal to make it a little smaller. I then put them together and placed a pearl in the centres of the two finished flowers. I cut two of the leafy swirls, one from each die, and I cut the bottom section off beyond the leaves and then put them together to the side of the heart and placed the flowers centrally. I love making these flowers which you can vary the shape of when making them up but they are quite bulky on a card so I don't very often send cards with them on through the post. Luckily for me this was hand delivered so no problem.
This was finished with silver stick on numbers and a sentiment.
Thank you for joining me today, and thank you also for your continuing support.
