50th Wedding Anniversary Card


Today I have another simple Wedding Card to share with you all. This time it is a Golden 50th Anniversary Card for some dear family friends of ours. Congratulations to the Golden couple, wishing them many more happy years together. So honoured to have been a part of their day!


To recreate this card I used a white 5 x 6.5 inch card base.
Gold Signature Foil Glitter Paper from Recollections.
The quilted embossing folder I used comes from We r Memory Keepers.
Rubber Mounted Stamp by Kelli Panacci from Hampton Art (Micheal's).
Orchid Die from Spellbinders.
Versamark Stamp Pad.


I have to tell you guys a funny story... well at the time I just about cried! 
When it was time to heat and melt the embossing powder that I had stamped, I went to switch on my Martha Stewart Heat Gun and the dang thing was dead! I quickly went into panic mode...  I thought I had to scrap it and start again just using regular ink. Then I had a light bulb moment!!! I remembered my husband telling me that he had bought a heat gun for himself a while ago. So I quickly ran to the garage and flung all his cabinets open until I found it, the Black and Decker 1350 Dual Temp Heat Gun.

A little overkill for my purposes but holy, did I fall in love! The embossing powder melted instantly, didn't even need to preheat the thing and I even had in on the lowest setting. I since have told my husband I was keeping it in the craft room, LOL! So ladies, you may want to see if your husband's have one of these puppies in their stash and test it out... you may not want to give it back ;)

Here is a closer look at the embossed gold lettering which almost which almost didn't happen!


Hope this simple Wedding card has inspired you to create one of your own. This would also make a great Valentine's Day card by changing up the colours and maybe using some hearts and a rose.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
