Golden Anniversary Made Easy

Today I'm showcasing a new template from My Time Made Easy that I've made up for a 50th wedding anniversary. It could also be used for a wedding shower, wedding gift, wedding centerpiece etc. Doesn't have to be GOLDEN anniversary - that's just what I had a need for. I'm sure by now you've seen some sneak peeks of this amazing template called Caged. Well here it is... all "formal" for you.


I used Gina K's metallic gold CS for the cage - it's truly gorgeous IRL. Added some wired gold ribbon from my stash and a bit of gold and ivory cording also from my stash. Then I set to decorating.... I used a couple of the Pretty Pieces cut files for my accents - Rambling Rose for the main flower on the front, and Branching Out for the branch and flowers.  The doves came from Hobby Lobby in their wedding section.


Here's the template plus the card. You will note I didn't put a 50 on the outside of the card so I can still use it for a wedding/anniversary if I change my mind.

I placed a golden candle holder inside with a LED tea light (real candles + paper = NOT a good idea!) but it looks really pretty at night - I gave up trying to get a good photo for you. REALLY generous size inside this template.

A closer look at the card. I am featuring some of my favorite new cut files on this. They are called Cornice Trimmed Labels and they come in 4 shapes - square, oval, circle and rectangle. Just a lovely nested set of gorgeous frames. My DP is from Hobby Lobby - just a pretty gold, cream swirl. It's the same paper I used to make the flowers on the cage itself.


A final look at the whole set again.

Be sure you hop over to my fellow DT girl Tangii, and of course Lauren herself to see what they've got for you. Stay tuned for more good things to come this week - you will be tickled!!!
