The family who received the card were even happier. "This has to be the best card we have ever received." she wrote on Facebook. "We love it, you are very talented."
Another customer asked me for an anniversary card for her daughter and son-in-law. She requested a small card and I had no specific brief, so I decided to re-make this card, in the more traditional colours associated with love, red and pink.
She also wanted a silver wedding anniversary card for a couple celebrating 25 years of marriage. Apparently the historic origins of wedding anniversaries date back to the Holy Roman Empire, when husbands crowned their wives with a silver wreath on their twenty-fifth anniversary, and a gold wreath on the fiftieth. This was a small card, so I decided to simply cut out a large silver number 25, which I embellished with some flowers and finished off with a silver bow. There was no wreath on this occasion!
