A Special Anniversary

Today's the day...my mom and dad's 65th wedding anniversary!  My sister, brother and I have all traveled to Cape Cod, Massachusetts (from California) to celebrate with them.  We have a few exciting days lined up, from lunch today to a big dinner celebration on Sunday evening, with many friends and family joining us.

Here is the anniversary card that I made for them, using Number of Years and my all-time favorite Designer Series Paper, Birthday Bouquet (soon to be retired!):

This is a large, not-quite-square card (fortunately I have a wonderful Envelope Punch Board that lets me make dozens of different-sized envelopes!).  The base is Whisper White Thick cardstock and the only color I used is Mint Macaron.

The numbers were stamped and cut, using the matching framelits (get them as a bundle NOW--the bundle will  no longer be available after 6/1, although you will be able to purchase the stamps and the framelits individually, but why pay 15% more than you have to?).  The top Whisper White layer was embossed with a new embossing folder--Floral Affection, and the corners were punched with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch (this did NOT carry over to the new catalog, so get yours now).

The next layer is Mint Macaron embossed with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder (also retiring).

I took lots of care with this special card, and I love the way it turned out.

With the matching envelope:
Happy Anniversary to two special people!
