Vintage - Diamond Wedding

Today I'm sharing rather a special card. Today is my Mum and Dad's Diamond Wedding anniversary. That's 60 years together....OMG......that's just an incredible amount of time to be married.
With all the health problems that my Dad has been having over the last couple of years, it's particularly poignant, as it's difficult to say whether he will either be here for the next and if so if he will remember enough to be aware.

So happy anniversary to my Mum and Dad! I can't be with them as I'm stuck at work on one of our busiest days of the year, but they are going to be spending a lovely afternoon celebrating with their friends at a social club they attend, so I hope they have a lovely day.

They should have already received this card, so I'm safe to share it here with you.

The base of the card is a white Pearlescent card stock and I have also used this for the sentiment, which is computer generated.

The papers for the layers are all neutral sheets from various Pion Design collections.

I used a heart stencil and some embossing paste, though I didn't think quite far enough ahead and ended up covering most of them with my layers.

I added cheesecloth and lace, some chipboard elements, some flowers and of course lots of little clear gems to give the suggestion of diamonds.

From The Ribbon Girl I used:
Chipboard Heart
Amanda Ivory Scalloped Lace
Veronica Ivory Flat Lace
Pearl and Crystal Branch
Ivory Open Rose
Rose Leaves

Thanks all from me today, but I'll see you soon.

  9. Wow, that is a truly special card for a special couple...60 years, that's a huge milestone! Your card is utterly enchanting; using neutral coloured papers and ivory flowers with touches of sparkle is so elegant. The lace is just scrummy and the embossing paste hearts look lovely just peeking out around the sentiment...they add another gorgeous texture and detail even if some got covered!
