Unusual Golden Wedding Card.

The card in its box
The verse on the little book.
The inside card insert
The spine
The box and matching tag
Open to reveal inner card
Homemade seed packet with real seeds.

This was a real challenge - a golden wedding card with the themes: fishing, cinema, gardening and reading!!! A challenge if ever there was one. So this is what I did:

Firstly the card is like a book, the main image is the poster from the film 'A river runs through it' for the fishing/cinema aspect. I photoshopped the blurb to read Golden Film Productions and changed the director's name to the card recipients. The front of the card closes by slotting into 3 hearts one of which has a bouquet made from flowers from Hobbycrafts. Inside I attached another card. I made a little bookatrix book with a verse about a garden by Thomas Moore. I made a sunflower seed packet and called it 'Golden Anniversary' which I filled with sunflower seeds. I thought they could grow them next year. The letters were cut on my cricut as was the little sunflower on the packet. This card is fixed inside the first and opens to reveal the insert. The spine of the card reads Golden Wedding. I then had to make a box as it wouldn't go in an envelope! I think I covered all the briefs!! The friend who it was made for was thrilled with it and it's going to her partner's parents next week so I hope they like it too.


  1. Hi Sue,

    I really like your 'unusual Golden Wedding card' and also the box you had to make (i do think the receivers really don't mind you had to make a box for it ;-) )

    Well done
