30 years!

Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad!! 

My parents are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary today. How exciting is that?! I had to make them a card to celebrate this wonderful occasion. They already received it because I sent it before their second honeymoon trip. They really loved it! Yay!! :)


I am in love with this Making Memories alphabet set. The way they combined fonts is awesome!
This beautiful paper was given to me by Mike's Aunt and Uncle. I just punched out 3 scalloped squares and foam adhesive mounted them on a piece of glossy pearlescent card stock from Paper Source. I wrapped this metallic ribbon around the whole thing and then adhered it with foam adhesive to the card base.
This embossing powder is incredible!! It is the filigree embossing powder from Papertrey Ink. It gives such a shiny professional look. Love it!
Because I loved the embossing powder so much, and I had to do it on the envelope too!

Congratulations, Mom and Dad!!
[Supplies]
Paper: Neenah Paper Classic Linen (classic natural white), Paper Source Stardream (opal), random China Town glittered fabric papers
Ink: Versamark

Thank you so much for visiting!

Have an amazing day,

  1. I've always wondered about the embossing powder that Papertrey sells... you've sold me on it! Great card... I really love how delicate it is. You know, I have a scalloped square punch, but can never find the "right" way to use it. You've done an amazing job with the scalloped squares on this card. :-)

  2. ... and congrats to your parents! My 2nd anniversary is coming up, and it's always encouraging/inspiring to hear about couples with such a longlasting marriage!

  5. So pretty! I love the scalloped squares! Congrats to your parents! My husband and I will have our 11 year anniversary this month, but we never had a honeymoon, we were married very young with no money!:) Maybe when it's our 20th will have one and the kids are grown! :)
