Sixty-Five Years of Marriage

Friends of ours recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary.  What a stunning tribute to marriage!  They celebrated with their local church and invited a few of us family friends to join them.  It was very inspiring and encouraging.  I made this simple card to show them our love and tucked a gift card to a nice restaurant inside.  This way they could enjoy a night out together sometime.  Here's the details:

  • I used an embossing folder with white cardstock to create the piece on the top, applied with foam squares to raise it off the card front for some dimension.
  • The board die was used to cut the same white cardstock making the eyelet piece applied under a piece of green ribbon from the stash.
  • The flower is a Heartfelt Vintage Floret cut from kraft glassine paper.  I just love how this looks when shaped- all crinkley with such dimension!  The flower is finished with a pearl accent for the center and a couple of pearl ended hat pins as accents.
  • The sentiment is stamped in black archival ink using Simon Says Stamp's Friendship Messages
What joy to celebrate such committment.  I pray that Dan and I might enjoy as many long years together!


  1. WOW, 65 years, sure it needs a beautiful card to celebrate!

  2. Beautiful CAS card and love that fabulous embossing. Have a wonderful weekend.


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
