Diamond Wedding

The 24th May is a very important day in my diary....its another double celebration with my youngest sons birthday and my mum and dads wedding anniversary. This year though is a special year....18 years ago today I gave birth to my son and 60 years ago today my parents got married. To see my card for Andrew pop over to my other card blog. My parents card was made with Stampin'Up products except for the 60th and the diamond wording, only because I dont have anything suitable in my Su stamp stash.

First of all the stamps....Apothecary Art from the new mini catalogue. I stamped this simply in Silver pigment ink and then I stamped the "Congratulations" stamp from Curly Cute. My orginal idea was to stamp and emboss with silver embossing powder but after a quick rummage in my bags remembered "its a box" somewhere all packed up for the move....{ I would be very rich if I had a pound for everytime I have said that already these past few weeks!!}

The stamp was then cut out with the framelits dies and I cut another on in Silver mirror card. The diagonals on the back was done with a scoring board. I do not have the SU one yet but its on my wish list as its got a diagonal plate which would have been much easier for me to use.

Finally I used some of the white satin ribbon to make a bow and I used the word window punch for the diamond sentiment. Each cross over had a diamond gem attached....I know its abit ott buts its not often I make a diamond wedding!! I also found some hat pins which I attached behind the ribbon...these can be brought at most good craft shops.

Hope you are all enjoying the fab weather, back soon before I loose touch for a while.
