25th Wedding Anniversary

Hey, made this card for my aunty and uncle; hope they like it!!! Really enjoyed making this card :)
I started by choosing three pieces of card to use for the book and the stand. I used an easel book template from I cut out the pieces and stuck the pages together, raising the edges of the smallest page with foam tape. I then stamped 'Mr & Mrs' from the Forever Friends Going to the Chapel clear stamp set and embossed it with detail clear embossing powder. I stamped and edged this with Versamagic turquoise gem ink. I used another plaque the same size and stamped 'date' and 'event' using Studio G clear stamps. I then filled in the details using peel offs. I then used Tim Coffey die cut stickers to put 'Wesley' across the bottom of the page.
I then attatched the pages to the stand and added a peel off across the top of the largest page and the bottom of the stand. I added a 'Congratulations' sentiment edged with silver card and raised with foam tape to act as a stopper for the pages to stand against. I then added two metal heart embellishments and a flower to the stand base. To finish, I used Hobby House pins with small silver beads, turquoise and white flowers and silver leaves to make the card extra fancy. Very pleased with the result and a fun project to complete :)
