Earlier this week I contacted some friends at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City to let them know that I would be at the Caring Program for Children craft show tomorrow, Friday, August 16th. I told them that if anyone needed a special card made to let me know and I would try to have it ready for the craft show.
I received a request from one lady to make a card for a couple celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary. What an awesome achievement for that couple!
This morning I made the above card. Before I began the card I looked on the internet to find out if there was a special color for 65 years of marriage and there was and it's sky blue. I then found some blue paper (I hope it's sky blue). I used the Catalina Wreath die cut, the typewriter numbers, and the birds from Memory Box to decorate the card.
I then stamped the sentiment "Anniversary Blessings" in Bashful Blue ink from Stampin' Up. Inside the card using the same ink, I stamped the sentiment: "Your Anniversary is a time to celebrate the beauty & blessing of enduring love. May you share that gift more today than ever before!". Both sentiments are from Sweet & Sassy stamps.
Well back to my craft desk as I still need to create more inventory of cards for upcoming craft shows. I also have one more special card to make that will be a Hawaiian themed birthday card for someone who will be celebrating their 70th birthday.
Take care all and God bless!
For the birds, I added some sparkly white fluff for a little texture.
