Fifty Golden Years

Hi everyone.  I hope you all had a good Easter break, and it is nice to see the weather has cheered up somewhat this week.  Before I go any further I would like to introduce you to a new follower called Karen Haskeck whose blog you will find here.  She does some beautiful work so please go and check her out.

One of my cousins has recently celebrated her Golden Wedding and the family are getting together to celebrate it shortly.   I decided to use another of my Chocolate Baroque stamp sets which is called Rose Stem Script.

The background is embossed using a snippet of white card with Couture Creations EF called Tied Together and then some pearls added.  Unfortunately this seems to be unavailable now.   I did originally have a Tied Together EF but it was faulty so I sent it back and since then have never managed to find it, so a lovely blogging friend supplied me with this and a couple of other samples from similar folders so I could compare with a view to buying one of them in the future.  I added a piece of scalloped gold card down the sides which I made with the scallop blade on my Woodware rotary cutter.  I attached the gold edged white ribbon to the embossed piece before adding the scalloped edge.

I stamped the rose on to a snippet of white card using Perfect Medium and then heat embossed with WOW Gold EP.  I stamped and heat embossed it a second time on to another snippet of white card and cut it out and attached with silicon glue over the top of the original to give it a bit of dimension.

I finished the card with a stamped and embossed fifty on another snippet of white card die cut with a S/B scalloped oval die.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Wow Pat, this is absolutely fabulous! I adore the white and gold together, love the stamps you used with the embossing. Such a great idea to also decoupage some of the rose. And of course the Tied Together embossed panel is a lovely background.

Hi Pat. Your card is beautiful and elegant. And a lovely keepsake for your cousin to mark a special milestone - congrats to them! I love the fussy cut rose that is popped up. Really gives it so much dimension and presence. Loll xx

This scrolled up and I was going "Oooh"...such a beautiful card to celebrate this marvelous milestone for your relatives. First, I love roses - and what could be more beautiful than the gold & white. That EP is just brilliant in its glimmer (I looked for some of the WOW Gold on my travels..only found some other colors). The EF is so pretty with this motif and your tiny pearls made it so very dressy. This is just gorgeous Miss Pat. (will look on the laptop for the info...and if not, will get back to you. Think the information came into my mail while we were thinking it's saved on the laptop.) TFS & big hugs.

That's a stunner. You've reminded me that I also have this stamp and haven't used it for aaaaages! Have to remedy that with your inspiration.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
