40th Wedding Anniversary

Mum and Dad celebrated their 40th Wedding Anniversary yesterday and I'm really happy with the card that I made for this special occasion.

As you know, the 40th Wedding Anniversary is a Ruby Anniversary so I used Riding Hood Red card stock on Whisper White card stock and made these gorgeous flowers with Bella Rose designer series paper.

I placed a red button (from  the Button Bouquet set) on top of a piece of Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon.  The sentiment is stamped from the Fun and Fast Notes stamp set.

Finally, I distressed all edges of the card stock and paper pierced the edges of the white card stock.

To make the flowers you will need to punch 6 - 8 scallop circles from designer series paper and place a brad in the centre of each stack.  You will then scrunch the paper up around the brad to create the flower.  Cut a leaf shape out and glue under the flowers (I scrunched the leaf too).

I made a little box to place the card in - the card didn't fit into an envelope because the flowers sit up quite high (doh!!).

The parcel arrived in Perth safe and sound and Mum and Dad both loved their cards and gifts.

Happy 40th Anniversary to them both!!
