Happy 150th to Canada and Happy 50th to a family friend!

50 years ago, on Canada's 100th birthday, some friends of ours got married. (You know who you are!) I made this shadow box card for you with the measurements I worked out myself (for our next class!). I made this card specifically for you (and it took me ALL DAY):

I put 5 roses on the front - one for each decade of your marriage.
I put 3 hanging hearts on the next layer - one for each of your lovely three sons.
I put 3 blue dots on the next layer - one for each of your lovely three grandsons.

And course, you two are in the centre!

There are three layers of frames on this one, each with a different shape. I didn't have any nesting dies that really fit the bill. I used blue in the middle because (I was told) that was the wedding colour.
I made a frame for the back to stick on the little anniversary poem I wrote. It folds completely flat to fit in an envelope. That's where the math came in. I had to make sure the flat dimensions were right for the envelope. This card went in a 5 x 7 inch envelope.

I was pleased with how it turned out. I hope our friends were too!
