What can I say about Joaquim and Joanne? A sweeter couple I have not seen. He still holds her hand, opens the door, pulls the chair, helps her with her coat. She still laughs at his silly jokes, fusses over him as only a wife can. And every Sunday, they are seated in the same spot at church. Does life get any better than that?
JJ (really, it's how their known to all their friends!) are simple people and their interests include rambling, bird-watching and bridge. Neither are into frilly foo-foo stuff. So the card has to be simple with clean lines and not over the top. This is what I've come up with for them:
|I stamped the sentiment from Papermania's Confetti "Anniversary" set with Versamark, applied gold embossing powder by Sticky Fingers and heat embossed it. I ran the CS through my Bigshot with Spellbinder's Fleur-de-Lis Square die.|
|The die cut squares and the swan are sitting on foam tape. For the swan I used black foam squares so they wouldn't show when looking from an angle.|
|For the inside, I stuck a strip of that gold and cream swirly paper.|
