25 Years - WOW!

My favorite uncle and his wife just celebrated their 25th anniversary and are still happily married, WOW! So for making a card for them I thought that it deserved a card on both sides. Not sure what I'm talking about? Hopefully the pictures will...

This is the back, or could be the front...just depends on which you like better:

I used CDS to weld the numbers to the back of the card and then again for the decorative frame to another back and then adhered the two backs together.

If you choose to have the 25th side as the front and you are able to look around to the back, this is what it looks like:

My sentiment to them is on the other side of the above black frame.

Those of you that know me...I can't make a card without a matching envelop:

Although I have to admit the above statement is not entirely correct, I didn't make envies for the thank you cards in the below post. ;p

Oh Nikki what a unique and creative idea and I love it!! When I make open cards with numbers /names etc I aways wonder where to put the verse and normally do it on the back of the card but to give it another front!! This is an amazing idea! I will definitely be trying this out if that's ok.
Fabulous matching envelope too!
