Wedding Anniversary Card

My parent's 57th wedding anniversary is coming up in September.  Married in 1959, my parents have 7 children and 14 grandchildren.

I knew I wanted an embossed background on my card and one that would work well with gilding wax, so I took out my Sue Wilson Dotty Daisy 8.5 x 11 folder which is my favorite folder when using gilding wax.

After embossing the light aqua cardstock in the folder, I rubbed Frosty Aqua Metallic Gilding Wax over the entire panel.  A little gilding wax goes a long way.  I rubbed it on fairly heavily so it would get into the flat spots between all the flowers to accentuate them even  better.

After cutting out the 5 and 7 from an old die set I have, I cut out the scalloped oval and frame with the Sue Wilson Frames & Tags Grace.  This is what the die set looks like:

I chose to use the Sue Wilson Delicate Daisies for my flowers.  I applied some Golden Light Metallic Gilding Wax to the two larger daisies and used some Ocean Blue Blending Ink on the others.  For the flower centers, I used the centers that come in the Sue Wilson Orange Blossom set.

The final step was to adhere some leaves which were cut from the Dee's Distinctively Small Pair of Leaves:
