Golden Anniversary

 Good morning,  here is my DT make for this fortnight's challenge at 
the theme is Anniversaries, chosen by our lovely Buffy.
I made this for some  very dear friends' 50th Wedding Anniversary. 
This is a Tuxedo fold, which is simpler than it looks (lots of tutorials online). I cut all the pieces of gold paper to size and embossed them using a swirly EF (it's old- I don't know the brand).
 The flower stamps are from Honey Doo, stamped onto white vellum and gold embossed, fussy cut and layered together with gold colour gems in the centre (my friend loves a bit of bling!), a few die cuts and a stamped sentiment.
There's plenty of lovely inspiration from the rest of the team over at Fab'n'Funky Challenge blog so be sure to pop over and check it out. 

Thanks for visiting,

Fabulous Golden Wedding Annivesary card, Chris. This style of card is still on my list of folds to try. I think the embossing folder might be Cuttlebug ‘D'vine Swirl‘.

What a beautiful card for such a special occasion! The Tuxedo fold adds an elegant touch, perfectly complemented by the gold embossed details and delicate flower stamps from Honey Doo. The use of white vellum and gold accents creates a luxurious feel, and the addition of gems adds just the right amount of sparkle. Your friends are sure to cherish this heartfelt creation for their 50th Anniversary!
