Number of Years Explosion Box

It's always wonderfully awe inspiring to meet a couple who've been happily married for 50 years.  We have the wonderful privilege of  celebrating this wonderful milestone with some dear friends.

And this is their card - and it was so much fun putting this together!!  I've used gold foil paper, gold glimmer paper, soft suede ink and Number of Years stamp set.

I've also used the Petite Petal Punch, Pansy Punch and the little flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  The little cake comes from Endless Birthday Wishes.

I LOVE the sparkly finish!!!

Edit:  Here is the template for you to make your own!!


  1. Love this but where are the directions for how to make it? Help!
