Golden Anniversary

My Aunt and Uncle are celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary on Saturday, I have worked a good part of the week off and on with this card...

Inside of card...
Posted by Picasa

First thing I did was created a .cut file from a card I found on SCS the blog link is here

50 .cut file download here
This .cut file is not A2 size it was made to fit inside a larger invitation envelope I am not sure of the alpha numeric name for this size but the box says to fit a 4 by 6 photo project.

Next after getting the .cut file down I printed off the photos I found that I wanted to use. On my photo printer I can print 4 photos on one 4 by 6 page, this was a great feature for this project all the photos printed the correct size. I played with them in Picasa editor by turning them all Sepia before printing.

I do have a bit of empty space on the inside I may find another photo or just leave it to show off more of my fave dp Stampin' Up has ever come out with. I tell you I have been hoarding this stuff and this was the perfect project to break it out on. I have said in the past that I do scan in my fave dp stacks so when they retire I can print them out when I need a page for something.
