50th Wedding Anniversary
50th Wedding Anniversary Card
Here is a way I celebrated the 50th Wedding Anniversary of my Mother and Father-in-law, living in Ireland. I made a frame from cardboard and stuck gold beads with cold glue onto the frame. It turned out to be rather a heavy card.
Oh, that is a very special and beautiful card. It must have made quite an impression on your Mother and Father-in-law. I might have been tempted to make it into a wall hanging, with such a nice frame as this adorning it.
It sounds like you may have used a hot glue gun
with low temperature glue on the bead work? I know that adhesive is very strong and quick to use so I use it for heavier projects myself (also it works very well with fabrics).
I like the heat embossed image
as well. It goes very well with the textured frame.
Thank you for sharing your lovely card, Ronell.
About your comments to me on the size of your iris fold card
: You should still be able to use the easel technique
even though the card is A5 in size. The process of making it into an easel card will actually strengthen the card front as you will be using two layers of cardstock to make the folded bit. You can also add more backing to the top portion of the fold if you like. HTH!
