A Golden Anniversary Card

Have I mentioned that I’m finally falling in love with this Gold trend?  When I had a chance to sit down and play with my new stuff for an afternoon recently, I found that I kept reaching for my Gold Foil paper or the Gold Vellum.  Given that this is the girl who ALWAYS prefers silver to gold and practically never wears gold anything… this is HUGE!

So, how about this card for someone who is celebrating an anniversary?  Especially a golden anniversary?  (hee hee… did you see what I did there? : ) )

I was very lucky to have been given this stamp set as a gift over the holidays.  I had actually seen the rubber for this set in the production line when I was in Kanab in September for Founder’s Circle and just LOVED the mustache, the I do with the “o” being a ring, and the people (aka – bathroom people I’ve heard them called).  See… kinda fun, right?

So, I just had to play with it and I got in the mood to try out my Oval Framelits as well.  Yes, I know they aren’t new-new, but they hadn’t come out of their packaging before in my house, so they were novel to me!

I tried this idea of cutting out the ovals to make a frame and then mounting the gold heart vellum to the backside of the frame.  That way, I could have my vellum and not have to worry about edges or how to glue it down.  Plus, in this case, I actually like the embossing that sometimes gets left behind when you cut out with a framelit.  It adds FLAIR!

Then just stamp and punch out your people and it looks like a fun cake topper from their wedding.  Anyone else see it? 

And, yes, this leaves you with big ovals left over from the gold and the Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock, but I’ll show you tomorrow an idea for how to use them!  So, make sure to stop back by!
