This is the Family Tree that I etched for Bob for our 35th Anniversary, which was today! I cut the tree out of vinyl, from Stretch Your Imagination, and the lettering from Plantin Schoolbook. I adhered the stencils to the glass, and used etching cream to etch the design onto the glass. The 35th Anniversary is celebrated with Emeralds....wouldn't you know it, not one person in our family has emerald as the birthstone!!! (*all birthdates, etc. have been blurred, just so some creepy person who might find this can't get data to use...just to be on the safe side.) It really is prettier in person, as taking a photo of a clear piece of glass is really hard to do...everything was reflecting into it! There's plenty of room for growth as new additions come along.
He surprised me with GORGEOUS emeralds! A pendant, surrounded with smaller diamonds, then matching earrings, and finally a ring, too!!! WaHooo!!!
I will post his card on Wed. morning, as it is also the Cuttlebug Challenge for this week. :-)
