Golden Anniversary Card

On my blog yesterday, I talked about our family friend who asked me to make her two cards; a 50th (golden) anniversary card & a Disney themed birthday card for an 8yo. Check out my blog from yesterday for my Elsa card. Today I'm going to show you the 50th Anniversary Card I've made:

I have made this card with a 6x6" Whisper White cardstock base. The black & white print paper is from my stash. I have layered the Gold Foil cardstock with another layer of Whisper White cardstock on top. I have heat embossed this card with Gold powder using Versamark ink & a Heat Tool.

The stamps are from the Number of Years stamp set. I have cut out the 50 using the matching Large Numbers framelits on the Big Shot with the Precision Plate, using more Gold Foil cardstock. You can save 15% when you buy these stamps & dies in a bundle! See the Occasions Catalog link on the left for more info. I have propped the 50 up on Dimensionals, cut in halves to fit the width of the numbers.

Heat Embossing Tips:
  • Use the Emboss Buddy pillow on the cardstock before you stamp it. This will take any static away & keep it from holding onto any little flakes of powder where you don't want them (like fingerprints)!
  • Make sure you do the heat embossing before you attach that piece to the card as it melts the glue. 
  • You can use masking tape or washi tape to temporarily attach the cardstock to your work surface before you heat emboss to keep it from curling.

I have followed the same layering on the inside & also heat embossed with Gold again. This was a really easy but effective card to put together & I even used another sheet of the black & white print paper to make an envelope, as it's plain white on one side. I used the Envelope Punch Board to make my matching 6x6" envelope & I put the black & white printed side on the inside so the outside of the envelope is white.
