Handmade Golden Wedding Anniversary Card

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will have seen a version of this card before made in red and cream for a Ruby Anniversary. This time I have recreated it  as a Golden Anniversary card.
The  cream and gold back ground paper was created  by typing out all the couples wedding details ie,  names, wedding date , location of wedding,  anything to make it personal  for the couple and  then printing off using a lazer printer. Then covering the text with toner foil and a sheet of paper and running it through a hot laminater.
The foil sticks to the toner  turning your text into a gorgeous rich, golden text.
I then aged the text a little with some crumb cake ink  from Stampin' up and a sponge dauber for the edges.
The overall sixe of this card is 8"x8" the base card is ivory pearl card . To make this size card I had to buy a large sheet of card to be able to cut out an 8"x16"  base card. All the other layers were cut from A4 size card.
I used a matt gold  card for the bottom half of the top layer and gold  mirri card for the other layers.
 Cream card slightly aged with crumb cake ink and a dauber for the lace and the first mat and the greeting. The frame I used is from Tim Holtz , I love these frames they are so gorgeous.
I can't remember where I got the rose from but it started life as a cream rose. The bride this card is for had yellow flowers in her bouquet 50 years ago. So it seemed fitting to add a little yellow to the rose and a yellow ribbon.
 I added 5 gold stick on studs  one for each decade of their marriage.
The text inside the card was hot foiled too. I don't own an A3 printer so the text was printed off, hot foiled, mounted onto gold mirri card and  stuck into the card. I also made a box and decorated it using some of the element s in the card. I lined the box with white tissue,  which I had stamped with yellow flowers and a  happy annivesary stamp from SU.
