Believe it or not but this year some of the people I know since my childhood are celebrating their 45 years , 50 years and even 60 years of marriage ( two couples ) !
The first one of 50 was last sunday .
So the last two weeks I made a few cards for the 50 year jubilee . One for myself and four that friends of mine asked to make for the same couple .The cards are sized to half an A 4 page .
Here is the first :
Two ovals with the same image but reversed in colour . The folding idea and the 3D file came from a 3D magazine . The heart I fastened on the upper side is actually a table card .
The second one I used lace to surround my image and I hand stitched small beads with silver Madeira thread on the lace frame . A green ribbon with a hanger runs through two slits in the card. On the bottom of my ribbon a small plate with again the small beads that surround two pearls .
My third cars is a stepper card, with vintage roses , glitter glued here and there , a punched border , and on the right side paper with a lover's verse and golden wishes stickers , a gold loosely woven ribbon tied at the bottom with a small piece of lace .
Next card is an easel card. I stamped all the roses , flowers and leaves separately and glued them on a heart shape ( an idea I saw somewhere on the web ) and attached to a hand cut shape. I coloured the small flowers and added pearls . Also added little sheer tied ribbons in between .On the side pink rhinestones and for he upper border I used a pearl maker . I do have to practice that some more !
My last card for this jubilee is a color plate I free downloaded from internet . I cut out the heart and coloured the roses . Then I used some golden leftovers from stickers to embellish the corners of the small hearts as well as the bigger one . Adhered patterned paper on the inside . Worked off with golden sticker borders ,( forgot to take a picture of that ) ,
And my social help at home has left for Peru last Sunday to see her parents after six years . She asked me to make something to hold the only two wedding pictures she has from her parents who are also married for nearly 60 years! ( She made copies of course , so the real ones stay with her )
This is what I made : It"s sort of a small book . I made a belt to surround and close it .
I stamped the belt with some flower curls .And embellished the sides with golden sticker sides .
I used two gold coloured buttons and a sheer purple ribbon to tie together .
journaling or photo's .
I made a flower from a shear peace of fabric and glued a prime rose in it . And also fastened a small chain with bead on it . Actually it is a broken earring as I recall now .
This is the actual inside of the card .On the right I used the rose punch . on the left I stamped some flowers above the page .
On the middle side I made a pocket to hold an envelope which I embellished with ribbon and punched out border, patterned paper . A hand crocheted rose with brad is fastened to the black card , that can be taken out.of the pocket. See next photo's.
This black card opens up and gives room for the great grandchildren to put in pictures or journaling .
I' ll leave you to it ... It is now way past mid night and my bed is calling. .
I hope to be back soon . Until then, take care ,
Hugs , Rosa
