Golden Anniversary…

Because several of my best friends we also my best friends in school, golden anniversaries are popping up this year.  How amazing is that…and wonderful?

In anticipation of those events and because Stampin’ Up! currently has the perfect Designer Series Paper, Thinlit Dies and stamp sets, making cards for these friends will be a snap.

Here’s today’s design…

and a close up…

and a peek inside…

And even though this card is for a golden anniversary it would also be perfect for an engagement or wedding card.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla Cardstock
  • Ink:  Sahara Sand
  • Stamps:  So In Love
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  So Detailed Thinlits Dies, Basic Pearls, 5/8″ Gold Satin Ribbon, 1-1/4″ Circle Punch and 1/8″ Circle Punch

Digits

  • The Sahara Sand card cover is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Cut two of the flower dies from Sahara Sand.  Score 1/8″ on straight side of each die cut.  Add small amount of multipurpose glue and attach to back of card cover folding the die cut to the front.  Add Basic Pearls to some of the flower centers.
  • Cut the inside of the Very Vanilla card 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Stamp border at bottom with Sahara Sand using three different stamps from So In Love.  Stamp sentiment at top in Sahara Sand.

That has to be one of the most beautifully simple cards I’ve ever made.  Makes a statement in person!

Is everybody doing their “HaPpY” Friday dance?  Me too!  This is a great day as my son, Jeff (father of “the littles”) is in town for business and we are meeting for lunch.  I’ll try to get a pic of him for tomorrow’s post so you can meet him.

Hope you have fun plans for the weekend…we are having a spring weather weekend.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

tap, tap, tap.

Be HaPpY…get inky!
