Ruby Wedding Card

Posted on


I made a card for my lovely friend Carol and her husband Graham to celebrate their Ruby Wedding Anniversay, Congratulations!

I used lots of Tim dies, thinlets, rosette, frameworks honeycomb and the word play alphabet.
I concentrated on the frameworks because I am entering the latest CC3 challenge from Linda Ledbetter. The challenge is from Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities Vol 3, page 64. You need to check out this book, Tim has included so many amazing techniques. There are fab prizes for this challenge from Inspiration Emporium!

I decided to try out a drop shadow effect with the frameworks. I cut out the first frame from plumbers tape and used an embossing folder, French Script. The second was cut from a backing paper from my stash.
The thinlets die cut the pattern to reveal the same paper (ruby) underneath and I used it to make the rosette.
The DI was Mahogany, Fired Brick and Victorian Velvet plus Vintage Photo. A Paperartsy stamp, embossed with silver then inked to reveal the letters finished the card off. The paper roses were added to give more dimension and happened to be the right colours!

  1. Hi Jan. Your 40th anniversary card for your friends is beautiful and aren’t handmade cards so much more personal than store bought ones? I love your heat embossed silver letters running down the side of the card. That’s a nice touch. I also like how you tied in the silver with your frameworks die cut that you used on the front. Nicely done! The colors are lovely and I am sure your friends will love it! Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. <3 Candy

  2. I am no card maker at all, Jan,

    but I LOVE this card! It is festive and yet also playful at the same time – and it visually spreads lots of love and well wishing too. I am sure it will be treasured!
