Clean and Simple Golden Wedding Cards

Hey!! :)

Well, long time no post from me- I hope you’ve all been well and had a good weekend!! :) Just a quick post tonight to try to get me back in the swing of things blog-wise after not feeling well enough to post or even browse too much for the last couple of weeks; sorry if this seems a little rushed only I’m still not feeling too good but would really like to post something as well as enter these cards in a challenge before it closes...

These cards were an order from a family friend; she asked for two Golden Wedding Anniversary cards for two couples a week apart- only they couldn’t be the same design as the couples not only know each other but include siblings, so would definitely see each other’s cards!!! So, after some thought, this is what I came up with...I thought it might be nice if they were similar in style but just different enough...

They're pretty simple and so thankfully don't need too much explanation but here's just a little... I went with a cream and gold colour scheme and used pearl card and mirror board, Nestie Ovals and a little Antique Linen DI for edging around the Peel Off ring focal points. I also used the D’vine Swirls Cuttlebug Folder and some gold organza from my stash for the first card and some gorgeous jacquard-y ribbon (sold as an Xmas Tree decoration!) and gold thread to make a Spirelli frame from the oval on the second card. The greetings are also Peel Offs.

A couple of slightly closer shots :)

I also stamped the inserts with a Woodware Clear magic alphabet set.

I don't think they came out too badly despite,when I was coming up with the design in the first place, having to put so much consideration into how much energy I would be able to expend making them!! Clean and Simple to the rescue again!! :)

I’d like to enter this in the Crafty Cardmakers Clean and Simple Challenge :)

Well, I’m off to get this linked and then to bed- I should be in bed already but so wanted to get this posted this weekend!!- hopefully it won’t be so long before my next post as it has been since my last!! :)

Wow. I'm very anti peel offs but I've never seen 'em look so good! Great cards and perfect for the Clean and Simple Challenge.
