Default 50th Wedding Anniversary card!

My In-laws will be celebrating their 50th next month and I would like to make them a card. Does anyone have any ideas they could please share?

Thanks in advance for any & all suggestions, I appreciate your time!
Connie

I think these are gorgeous for the golden anniversary:

50th Wedding Anniversary Card

Crafty Love n Hugs: Golden Wedding Anniversary Card & Box

http://www.mariestamps.com/2012/03/g...y-parents.html


I like the idea of this card, but I wouldn't cut the heart and I would use different cardstock. I love the sentiment and that she put the picture of their wedding inside a trifold card:

Christina's Collection: Anniversary Invitation or Greeting Card

I love the design of this card. We (A Muse Studio) carry a background stamp called Venetian that is similar to the quatrefoil on this card. We also carry a gorgeous shimmer gold cardstock. You can check them out on my webstore: https://www.amusestudio.com/brendalee

Savvy Handmade Cards: 50th Anniversary Card


I also like the idea of putting a wedding photo with a current photo. This isn't a card, but it's an idea.

Golden Anniversary Pumpkin Photo Card

Hope this helps. I'd love to see what you come up with.

@ Brenda, Thanks so much for the links, I appreciate it. I really like the 1st card! Now I think I will have to look up directions for an easel card, should I go that route!

I don't have any suggestions for your card, but I used this poem inside a card I made for my daughter-in-law's parents for their 50th Wedding Anniversary.

My DIL later told me her mom asked her to read it aloud to all the guests at the celebration, and everyone was very touched.

"One by one each year flew by,
Since you both said “I do”
Fifty years of memories,
Shared by the two of you.
From big events and holidays
To simple daily pleasures,
Some tearful times along life’s way,
Some joys that can’t be measured.
One by one each year now gone,
But still they’re yours forever,
Each and every memory,
Of Fify years together!"


Happy Golden Anniversary
