RRCB#66 - Going to the Chapel!

Hello and welcome back! Today's card is for the challenge at Retro Rubber. The theme is wedding cards, but I don't have any of those coming up. I took care of all of those last year, where I had 10 weddings in the span of about 15 months! I do, however, have a need for a special anniversary card, so hopefully, this will do.

And here is today's card:

Since one of the requirements for the Retro Rubber challenge is to use a stamp set that is more than one year old, I dug into my stash and found Memorable Moments, which first appeared the 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. My husband's cousin and her husband will be celebrating their 40th anniversary this summer, and the family is planning a surprise party for this weekend. Since the 40th anniversary is the Ruby anniversary, I decided to make a red and white card. 

The card base is Shimmery White, with a Red Glimmer Paper layer added under the embossed layer. For the focal point, I stamped the label from Memorable Moments and used the retired Labels framelits to cut it out, then trimmed around the stitching so that I could use the same size framelit for the glimmer paper underneath. I also accented the flower centers with Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details, which are almost exactly the same color as the glimmer paper!

Looking forward to surprising them this weekend and celebrating!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
