For a Ruby Wedding Anniversary

As it is over a week since I posted anything, I thought I would just show you the card I made a couple of weeks ago for some friends' Ruby Wedding. It was needed on the same day as the rather elaborate wedding card in my previous post, so I needed to keep this one fairly simple.

I chose a big decorated heart stamp by Magenta. It is is one of the first stamps I ever had, so it must be pretty ancient now! I stamped it in Rhubarb stalk memento ink, and clear embossed it. When I had cut it out I mounted it on a burgundy mat cut with an 'around the page' punch by Martha Stewart.
Next I cut the rose leaf swirl from the Heartfelt Creations Bella rose die set, from gold mirri-card, and used the off-cuts to make the 40 years, using Britannia dies.
The rose stamp is also from the Bella Rose collection, and I coloured it with copic markers and cut it out with the matching die.
The sentiment was made on the computer and mounted on a Spellbinders label.
I was going to distress the edges in red ink, but instead I used fine gold peel-off borders to hold it all together.

Kate this is beautiful - and must have looked so rich IRL with the gold accents.

Love this card Kate - just perfect for a Ruby Wedding celebration.

Happy Birthday to Chris too - and how strange that we both have the exact same dress - or is it?Great minds and all that :)

Hugs, Di xx

Gorgeous card Kate, definitely the right design for an anniversary. Love the heart which works so well inside the diecut (which is fabulous).
Hope the eye appointment is going well.
Hugs and thanks for your earlier visit, Neet xx
