40 Ruby Red Years of Marriage

Hi girls and guys, thought I would share with you a card I made for friends 40th wedding anniversary.  It was one of those cards that went together straight away and proved to be a really nice card (even if I say so myself!), which was a bonus as I made it yesterday, when I needed it for today (no pressure there was there?). 

It was an 8x8 card (as usual) think this is a nice size for special occasions and easier to make a square box too.  I used a spellbinder die to make the red roses and curled the edges of the petals before rolling,  the gold leaves were one of the new Sue Wilson leaf dies, which I really liked, think they're just a bit different to the standard leaves.  The ovals were cutting using the Tonic dies, really useful set which comes with both plain and scalloped ovals.  Obviously the '40 years' and the 'Ruby Anniversary' were peel offs that I had.  Haven't used peel offs for yonks, but couldn't find the correct stamp at the time, but may have to re-introduce them into my crafting again.....

I did make a box to put it in, but forgot to take a photograph,  doh!  Never mind, next time perhaps.
