Golden Wedding

One of my Aunts and Uncles are celebrating their Golden Wedding anniversary later this year, and I've been asked to make a couple of cards to send to them (the first one I made is here). When I saw the sketch for this week's Less is More challenge, I immediately thought of using it for another anniversary card. I cut the hearts from an antiqued gold card (from Paperchase) using my Cuttlebug 'Concentric Hearts' die, and embossed the solid hearts using my Cuttlebug 'Victoria' folder. I used cream linen card for my card base, embossed a strip of the 'offcut' with my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder, and used more of the gold card behind it...having punched the edges with my EK Success 'Scalloped Dimaonds' border punch. The sentiment is from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp.
