Personalised 60th Wedding Anniversary Card

The card posted here was commissioned by a friend for her in-laws wedding anniversary.
She wanted something a little special as it is a special wedding anniversary.
This what I came up with after a lot of thought and planning.
I made the background paper by typing up the details of their wedding,  ie. place, date, names,  town. name of church. I then printed off two sheets and hot foiled  both sheets using gold toner foil.

Using a sponge dauber and S.U s crumb cake ink I daubed the edges for that vintage look.

I used my all time favourite stamp set from S.U  Baroque Motif  to stamp the  second of my background papers, again I used the sponge dauber to soften and age the edges infact I used this technique on each and every layer including the edge of the punched lace.
I printed off the wedding photo in several sizes and placed the frame over each of them to see which fitted best and cut the photo to fit the frame.
The frame is a metal frame by Tim Holtz. I love these frames and want to put them on everything from my cards to the furniture but that might be a tad expensive and look ridiculous.
I punched some fern leaves and daubed them with olive ink around the edges added a paper rose and a couple of leaves.

Using the baroque Motif stamp set again I stamped some tissue paper with the crumb cake ink and placed it in the box  as a wrap.
The box was made to fit the card and decorated with the second sheet of foiled background paper again daubed with ink and I added red roses.
