50th Anniversary

Today card is for my in-laws who will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary on July 15th!  They do not want a party so we are planning to take them to Vegas sometime this fall...just their boys and spouses!

I was inspired by this card I found on Pinterest.  I googled champagne glasses, imported them into Silhouette Studio to trace/cut out, I duplicated the glasses, edited to make the center cut for the shaker part, and cut out acetate for the "glass part".  I used double sided sticky foam board to mount the front and back of the glasses to and gold glitter for the "champagne".  Fancy label and 50 cut out on my Cameo, heat embossed in gold Happy Anniversary, divine swirl embossing folder from Cuttlebug, and organza ribbon by The Ribbon Boutique.  All papers are Recollections from Michael's.
