60th Wedding Anniversary

Today are my in-laws 60th Wedding Anniversary and we had a Catholic Mass with catered dinner.  Everything was so much fun,  and they appreciated the card I made them.

The easel card is closed below.  I used 1 piece of DP from Mme and embellished with Magnolia Doohickeys, WOC roses, pearls and ribbons from my stash.

The tulle is vintage from a garage sale, I love it and I am getting low on it.  

The Magnolia Doohickey heart is so cute, I put some crocheted ribbon, charms, pearls, pin and ribbon on and then the # '60' for their anniversary.

The top and then the bottom of the left side of the card.

The top under their wedding photo I made a tag with MF tag and Magnolia Doohickey on top.  I put their party and original wedding information on it as a keepsake.

Here is the card in a box I made.  My good friend Sandy D told me about Uline boxes so I ordered a bunch and decorate them to match the cards.

Here is the top of the box

Here is the box from the side.  This is so much easier than making my own box.  

I would like to enter this into the following challenge
I felt this was definitely Shabby Chic
because it is elegant also

Thank you for stopping by for a peak, now I need to rest my very full tummy.  Oh so much food and fun, Goodnight

  8. Kelly - first of all, I want to say what a wonderful family you have. From Ducks to great in-laws, you all are the best! Your Anniversary creation is wonderful and quite a keepsake along with that fantastic box you decorated. I need to try that but I do not have a clue where to even start. What a wonderful time I know you all had - a very special card for a special couple!

  9. Awesome card and box, Kelly. I bet your in-laws loved it. It is definitely elegant. Thank you for sharing it with us at Midweek Magnolias.

  10. You do such pretty things with paper. I am a paper addict too. I work with lots of crafts, but have designed for a scrapbook company. I love to cut and paste by hand. The anniversary card is amazing, and Happy Anniversary to your in-laws. I hope I live long enough to make it to my 60th.

  11. WOW.....what a gorgeous gift set you created for your in-laws!!!! Sixty years together is quite an achievement. I know they will treasure this magnificent work of art!

  12. What a beautiful. Love the colors. Keep them coming Kelly!
