Here is my latest a 60th (Diamond) Wedding Anniversary card, another commissioned piece, hope she likes it, for a friend of mine's Grandparents. I used two pearlised A4 card pieces in white & silver same layouts as before, I cut in a textured silver card the latice panel from WC expanded in DS to fit my card then I cut two diamonds in a size smaller than each other & stuck these two together this was embossed through CB & I used two clear gem brads, I cut two tags from CB die & computer generated words for Name & all the other words on the card, which my client chose, this is the wonderful thing about these cards against shop bought, hey might cost a little more but are so personal to the receiver of the card, the quote on the front is on a lilac pearlised card & the edging is punched with my MS arch punch (thank you Enfys) I made a plain white box tied with large organza ribbon, hand cut the diamond on the front & the 60th is from George cart cut in white & silver
