Craftwork Cards Shabby Chic - 70th Anniversary Card

Hola!

I'm delighted that we're into 2017 - and there are lots of exciting things happening this year. Today I wanted to share with you a very special card I was asked to make for a 70th Wedding Anniversary. I did say 70! Now, I know this card isn't as special as the one the gorgeous couple received from the Queen but I do know that they absolutely loved it and said it was so beautiful they were keeping it on their mantle. 

What do you use to make a 70th Wedding Anniversary Card? Well..the personalisation went into the inside of the card with a very special message. It needed to be elegant, and in fitting for people who have lived a long and wonderful life. Knowing they absolutely love their very large and glorious rose garden, I decided on Craftwork Cards Shabby Chic Collection.

As the card was not being posted, rather hand delivered I knew I could go dimensional and make a lovely box to go with it. 
This is a large 15cm easel card with tons of embellishments and dimension. 
I also made a deep 18cm squared box to put the card in. The depth was 3cm due to all the flowers. The sides and the inside is fully lined but I forgot to photograph it - d'oh! 
A large pink satin ribbon was used, Stardust Stickles, Opal White Liquid Pearls and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pearl White.After rummaging in my stash, I found a Craftwork Cards Happy Anniversary Sentiment made from vellum that was perfect! I lined it with Craftwork Cards Fuchsia Glitter Paper Strips Pad and black card. 
I added a couple more sentiments, a few Tonic Dies and it was complete. It's quite a striking card when up and I'm so glad I used Shabby Chic!
I'll be back later in the month with more Craftwork Cards designs - and on Friday I have a very special Tonic project to share, but until then - have a fabulous week.

lots of love
