Golden Wedding Acceptance

Hello peoples - Happy Sunday - hope you're enjoying your weekend.

The card I am showing today is one I've made for my mother and father-in-law, who will be celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary in October - they'll be having a family meal in a local restaurant.

I've followed the sketch template which is in the Do Crafts Creativity! Magazine this month. I've used the Christmas Tree Embossing Folder which was free with the magazine to emboss the heart and sqare panel - proves it's useful not just for Christmas! The hearts die is an X-Cut one, and the sentiment was created on the computer. I am wondering whether to swipe around the edges of the card with ink and then emboss with gold powder - can't decide!

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes

Southern Girls Challenge - Their first challenge which is Anything Goes

I'm trying to come up with simple Christmas card ideas at the moment that I can use for batch cards - nothing too inspired happened yet so I can just see me buying cards from charity shops again this year! Also got lots of birthdays coming up, so hope to have some more cards to show you soon.

Love, Andrea xx
