Golden Anniversary

Hey Stampers,

Well, the end of the week is nearing ! Its Thursday, and I feel like this week has FLOWN by ! I have been so busy trying to set up Catherine and Cathy Create. Messaging between me and Cathy is at an all time high (which is saying something haha), lining up our fabulous Design Team, laying down a schedule of posts, etc etc it seems to be never ending ! Fun and everything, but still a lot of work. So when I had a few minutes to myself lat night to do some stamping - it was very relaxing ! I had to prepare a couple projects for the CCC Color Challenge that Cathy and I are posting tomorrow, but I also had to make a 50th Anniversary card for a friend of my Mother In Law's ! And when I think 50th, I think GOLD. So take a look at this blinged out beauty !!

Now, is that a celebration card of what !?! I used lots of gold here - Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, Champagne Glimmer Paper and Brushed Gold Cardstock. Love it ! I embossed the 50th using Versamark and my embossing powder, how beautiful ! I stamped the "happy anniversary" and the border using Soft Suede ink, really goes will with the gold I think. All of these images are from the Memorable Moments stamp set. I then die cut the piece out with my Label Collection framelits, plus the Champagne Glimmer Paper piece. These were layered with some Glue Dots. I sponged a Tea Lace Paper Doily with some Crumb Cake, and added it to the back of my Labels. Love those sweet doilies !

My dry embossed layer is a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 3-3/4" x 5". I embossed it with the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder, and layered it onto a piece of Brushed Gold Cardstock measuring 4" x 5-1/4". I took a 3/4" strip of the Glimmer Paper and added it to the centre of my embossed piece. I layered some Victoria Crochet Trim and some 3/8" Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon over it, for a nice layered look. I then added my die cut piece on top with some Dimensionals. Really pretty easy, but SO impressive !! 

Well, thats it for me today !! Come back tomorrow to see my FIRST EVER post for Catherine and Cathy Create ! I will highlight my project on here, but to see mine and Cathy's make sure to visit the CCC blog !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !
