Happy 70th Wedding Anniversary!

My friend Yvonne asked me to make a Tri Shutter Album for a very Special Couple who are going to be celebrating their 70th Wedding Anniversary this coming Saturday. No that's not a mistake 70th!!!! How fantastic is that....

I went with Marina Mist, Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla for my colour combination. I didn't do much stamping in the end, instead I used lots of the Bigshot dies and embossing folder.

I did use the Tiny Tags set though on the front and the sentiment is embossed with silver embossing powder. I haven't done that in a long while and it still amazes me, how it changes with the heat gun. I embossed the Mr & Mrs on the little tag as well. The sentiment is from a Level 2 hostess set in the Mini Catalogue.




I used the Timeless Alphabet to do the numbers and glued them to a Bevelled windowpane.
This is what the inside looks like. I used the embosslit hearts on the outer pages and the paper is blueberry crisp.
This is a close up of the hearts and the filigree brad. The vanilla layers are embossed with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder.
Open the album a bit more and you can see the back section. Yvonne is going to add a photo here.
On the sides of the back section, is the date the couple got married in 1941!!!
The bird is from the Hostess Level 1 stamp set Punch Potpourri stamped in Marina mist and punched out using the bird punch. I printed the date using word and then stamped the image from the four frames stamp set and embossed it with silver embossing powder.


The flowers are from the boho blossom punch.
The back section has a top note and a couple more hearts.
I hope they like it.
