Silver Wedding cards

Thank you for visiting. We had such a lovely week end, weather included. So, today is my SIL's Silver Wedding Anniversary. Do any of you remember the DJ Jimmy Young? He asked the question "why do I get so many requests for Silver Wedding dedications for a Tuesday?" Answer, because most of us get married on a Saturday.
OH and his sister do not usually exchange anniversary cards but his mum reminded him on Friday that it happened to be their Silver. card number 1 needed. I told daughter and asked if she needed a card but said , she'd buy one. An hour later it was "mum, can you make me one please, I won't have time to buy one. Card number 2 needed. On Saturday afternoon, MIL came around, can I please do her one. Card number 3 needed. Now, although their anniversary is today I had to get them ready for Sunday because they happen to be going away to celebrate their anniversary. I had to produce 3 cards very quickly! All different of course and here they are, I'll be interested to know if you like them and if you have a favourite. They have been made with white card, silver mirri card and Lidll card. I printed the sentiments using a laser printer and "foiled" them with a Pasty May Foil-it machine. I don't think the photos pick up the foiling very easily

The one I made for us to give

Daughter's one, no frilly fuss, was the brief!. I saw a similar idea to this on Pinterest and used Serif to "punch" hearts and scrolls 

The one for MIL. I wanted to make a large sentiment, so that she could read it more easily (she is 90, bless her) and I also made and printed an insert on vellum for her. All she had to do was sign it - again she doesn't like her handwriting any more
I must apologise for not visiting all of your blogs recently, time just seems to disappear these days. I do look even if I don't have time to comment. I will try and catch-up
See you Thursday


  1. What a lovely selection of Silver wedding anniversary cards Karen, I have to say the first is my favourite though, I LOVE the foiling. I think I need to have a go at that!
    Well done, for getting them all made quickly I always think it's funny when you get multiple cards for one couple, at least they'll not get any others the same though.

    Happy crafting, hugs Erika. x

  2. Good evening Karen,
    Absolutely stunning cards love the both.
    I really like the edge round that square Die, so effective.

  7. Hi Karen, you did get busy making cards . I love them all but the

  8. Hi Karen
    I'm playing a bit of catch up myself as usual.
    Ooooh, all three are superb so it would be difficult to choose but I am leaning toward the purple one as I really love the colour.
    I genuinely don't think people realise how much time cards take to do lol!
    Best wishes.
