Beautifully Simple 25th Anniversary Card

Today I'm sharing a 
special card I made for a long time email pen pal.

This is a large card and required extra postage. 
I mailed it an a bubble wrap envelope. 

I used a new to me 6" square embossing folder for the front.
We R Memory Keepers Next Level Embossing Folder, Bouquet
It has so much dimension ! 

The elements on the front are various supplies from my stash:
- the "2 5" was die cut from a piece of card stock that I had a misprint
on from a previous project, so I flipped it over and cut from the clean side.
- the white lace border with touches of shimmer has been in my
sewing stash for years. It's fun to use neglected sewing supplies
on craft projects. I used low temp hot glue to adhere it to the card front. 
- the 5/8" wide organdy ribbon was bought way back when
Stampin' Up! used to sell such ribbon.
- the flower with rhinestone center was part of a layering kit of 
floral pieces that I bought years ago at a yard sale. 

The inside:
I had printed the sentiment I created on my computer
for a previous project, but it was the wrong size so I never used it.
I finally had the perfect project to put that misprint to use.
I embossed along the top and bottom edges
(don't look too closely, I ran it through the wrong way 
so it is actually debossed!).

Because the card front is so large, I had to piece together
two pieces of silver metallic card stock to create the base.

I think this card would be neat as the center of a 12"x 12"
scrapbook page surrounded by small photos of the couple
over the years. Even placed off center with a couple larger photos
from the anniversary celebration. It could be framed and hung on the wall !
