I invite you to a golden anniversary

Last July, my parents celebrated their 50th anniversary.   Everything was wonderful, we celebrated it at our church after services.   My dad's sister was not able to come, but her family was well represented.  Mom had 1 brother and 2 sister's attended the celebration.   My brother and sister helped with the planning, and dad decided to continue the celebration with mom and they are going on a cruise next month.   I do not know what to do with those crazy kids.

It is my turn on the Card a Day blog to show you what I did to create the perfect invite of this nature.   At first, I was going to show the original invite, which had a white and gold pattern paper, and mounted to it was a lavender paper, with the invite printed on it.  I had already taken a picture of it from last year, but  as I reviewed it, I had some personal information on it.   So I went in MS Publisher and changed it around.   In the spirit of Valentine's day, I recreated the invite to look like this:

I think it turn out better than the original.   I double matted the invite.  the first mat is a patterned paper of paper stack given to me by my Secret Sistah over the holiday season.  It is 4 6/8" x 4 6/8" just about.   The Red paper (the second mat) measures about 5" x 5 1/2".   The kraft colored invite measures 4 1/2" x 4 3/8".
The only thing that is the same is I centered the text on both of them.  You can add a fake bow to it, and that is what I had on the original invite.

I invite you to go the Card a day blog to enter in a new challenge started for the month of February, as well as check out the other cards on the blog.   All of them are really nice.

Thank you for stopping by my little blog, and have a wonderful, blessed day.


  1. Nice invitation! I agree with you, sometimes I create a card, and then afterwards think of all the different ways I could have done it :-) Good idea on recreating cards or invitations! TFS
