Diamond Anniversary

My husband’s aunt and uncle celebrated their 60th anniversary this week. My task was to make an anniversary card marking this milestone and celebrating their love. I found a card on Split Coast Stampers that gave me the needed inspiration: https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2662336?&si=diamond+anniversary

Following is my card. For the front, I used the bird builder punch, retired from Stampin Up, Stitched Season Framelits retired Stampin Up, silver foil and glitter paper from Hobby Lobby, a Spellbinder’s circle die, and a set from Maymay Made It called From All of Us. The Darice Floral Vines embossing folder was used for texture. The birds eyes are clear rhinestone embellishments that I used a black alcohol marker to give them color.

Following is the inside. I used How Many? from Maymay Made It, and Best Wishes from Hero Arts. The paper used for the card is Heavy Base and Layering Weight Ivory cardstock from Gina K Designs.

You can’t tell it in the photo, but I added glitter to the number and exclamation point using a Glitter Gel Pen. Now we need to sign and mail the card.

    1. The glitter paper is quite nice. This particular sheet is from a company that isn’t Hobby Lobby brand and the glitter doesn’t all flake off. It makes the birds home quite nice. Thanks for the comment!

  1. Wow – this is stunning and they will love it. Looks like you used a lot of different stamps to get the sentiment inside. It is so pretty and so elegant. Yeah – finally the notifications are working for me, so no excuses for not commenting anymore. Thanks to you Bonnie.

    1. Thank you, Golda. I mailed it yesterday. Now, I am creating the same basic card for friends who are celebrating their 30th anniversary soon. I was a in their wedding, so it is easy for me to remember.

  2. This is a lovely anniversary card, Lisa. Love when you find a design that works and you can use it again.
