Way back when, when we were very young (it now seems), we were wed -
and today we marked the 40th anniversary of that event - although the 'official' celebrations were held the other day.
And yesterday I made a card to give to my Sweetheart.
I started with the die cut heart and stamped and embossed the image.
The gold gelato was added with my finger while the panel was still in the die. The background panel was also coloured with gelatos, gold, and then lemon - the sparkle of the gold shows through both colours.
I used one of my oldest stamps, so old the label has worn off it - I added the 40 with an embossing ink pen before I added the ep.
I added the ribbon to both the front panel and the side of the longer back to the card - on this panel I added four gold heart brads to signify the four decades we have been married.
I added the sentiment using black ink as DH has severe macular degeneration and red on white is not a strong enough contrast for him to be able to read it easily.
