50th Wedding AnniversaryPosted: February 25, 2011
My parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this weekend in Canberra with family and friends. Sadly my family will not be there but we managed to get a parcel together containing cards and other handmade items. It reached them a few days ago so now I can post the card I made.
It was quite a departure for me to make a card like this after making so many one layer cards lately. I embossed the poppies in gold, coloured with SU ink and an aqua painter, then sponged the pale blue background. It is not really visible (perhaps my new camera might have captured it better??) but I also embossed poppies in white around the left-hand and bottom edge of the large white panel.
When I was speaking to my mother yesterday she mentioned the card my dad made her. After she described it to me I asked if they could perhaps send me a picture so I could display it on the blog. My dad printed a photo from before they were married, added a sentence on the front and wrote a poem for the inside. I think it is superb.
