Golden Anniversary

     I had a friend ask me if I could make an anniversary card for a couple who got married on Valentine's Day 50 years ago.  I knew that 'Golden Anniversary' would be a great theme and decided on gold embossing powder before I even looked at what I might use image-wise.  Here's the end result.


     In addition to the gold embossing, I decided on a touch of red as a nod to Valentine's Day.  On the gold, what wasn't heat embossed was colored with metallic ProMarkers.  The sentiment was cut with a die from Memory Box.

     I was very pleased with the way this turned out and so was the friend who ordered it.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  11. I can't believe it wasn't all gold embossed. You did a wonderful job matching the golds. The touch of red means you've thought of both occasions for the couple. Happy Anniversary to them.
