One more Golden Wedding !

If you visitied for WOYWW this week, you will have seen this project half finished on my craft table. It took a bit of doing, as my mojo up and left and I couldn 't seem to get myself in gear !

The main image is a trusted Inkadinkado stamp which was requested for this card, it's been stamped with Memento black in and then shaded with Pro Markers. I cut it out using Nestabilities Labels 4. The embossed panel is made using the Vintage Wallpaper EF by Stampin' Up, I stamped on the inside of the EF with a Tim Holtz Reflections stamp then used Antique Linen, Scattered Straw and Wild Honey DI over it. The horizontal panel was made using the Paint Dabber Resist technique, the stamp is a Viva - Silikon - Stempel stamp.

The letter and the year was done on my PC and cut out using a circle Nestability. The background was inked with Antique Linen and Scattered Straw and stamped with a stamp from the Baroque Motifs set by Stampin' Up. The organza ribbon was gathered with a running stitch. The swirls are cut using a Sizzlit die. The rose was made using a Grunge Flower die by Paper Artsy, and I stamped a blank page from an old book to make it.

As seems to be the norm these days, I've had to make a box as the card won't fit into an envelope ! The corners are stamped using a Clarity stamp using Wild Honey DI.

The rose is made with some more paper from an old book that's been stamped using a Katzelkraft stamp and a Paper Artsy die. The leaves are made using Tim Holtz's Tattered Leaves die.
