A Special “50” Gift

Recently friends of mine celebrated their 50th Anniversary!  Yes, that is wonderful!  Not only did God bless them with a wonderful marriage, but also with a wonderful family.  I am also proud to call their daughters my friends as well.  And 2 of the 3 daughters are my fellow stampers too!  All 3 children and their spouses, and their children, threw them a big party to celebrate!  Here’s the happy couple:And I made this gift card holder card to give them. 

The gift card holder was made from the now retired Springtime Foil DSP. (I stocked up on this gorgeous paper before it retired!  I hope you did too!)  A belly band of Whisper White cardstock was trimmed with gold Washi Tape and stamped/heat embossed with gold embossing powder using the sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet.  I was so happy to use the Gold Foil Sheets and my Large Numbers Framelit dies to crop the numbers which I placed over a flourish cut from Silver Glimmer paper and the Flourish thinlit dies.

Here’s a look at the inside:A gift certificate to a local restaurant was tucked inside.  The envelope punch board made it simple to add that ‘file folder’ tab-edge to the inside.

Wedding Wishes

My husband and I were invited to a wedding this weekend, so of course you know that means I would be giving a handmade wedding card, right?


I chose Very Vanilla and Tip Top Taupe as my color combo.  I knew I wanted the “Wedding Wishes” sentiment from the Rose Wonder stamp set, but I wanted to use the flowers and leaves from the Botanical Builder Framelits dies

I used the soft, lace-y Tip Top Taupe 1″ Dotted Lace Trim.  This item is retired, but it is now available in the Clearance Rack! SCORE!!!  But only while supplies last so don’t wait if you want to get this gorgeous ribbon.  (it’s available in other colors, too!)  Layering Ovals framelits helped my crop out and layer the sentiment in a snap.
