Happy Golden Wedding Anniversary Mum and Dad

I can't even begin to get my head around being married to the same person for 50 years! But Mum and Dad have managed it and stayed relatively sane!

I saved these hearts from ~{Tando}~ especially for this card when I received them for DT-ing. I ran the large heart and the photo frame (also from Tando) through the cuttlebug embossing folder. I did wonder how it would go as I know how sturdy the chipboard is after battering it about a lot in the past, but it embossed beautifully and I shall be doing it more often.

I've painted it with gold acrylic paint, then used some metallic rub-ons to highlight the embossing and finished off with throwing loads of flowers at it!! The '50' is stamped with ~{9200 Random Acts Alphabet}~ by Janet Klein for Stampotique.

As Lynne and I have given them tickets to see ~{Million Dollar Quartet}~ we needed a wallet to put the tickets in. I had to use non-Tando chipboard for this (sorry Di!) and did exactly the same with this. The base is half a sheet of Bazzill card folded in on itself and stuck at the sides - very simple to make. The 50 for this is a Tim Holtz Alphabet die.
