Hello Everyone..

I have had a bit of time to myself last few days so took advantage and made a card for a friends Golden Wedding Anniversary..

He is a very keen gardner and she loves green and they both love between them both I came up with a card and matching box with green and outdoor elements like the birds on the branch and flowers..

This was [is] the front of the box....the focal sentiment was PC generated in gold[ish]

The beautiful die cut butterfly was cut using Wild Rose Studio Butterfly die and the gold foil from the semi soft butter container....wiped clean of cannot have someone walking around licking butterfly wings!!!

The front of the card was the same but without the birds and their names replaced the congratulations..

And a side view..

Well. it is Sunday afternoon while I'm writing this post up and pouring with rain and I have to venture out in it soon to do the afternoon rounds with my clients..[sigh]..

Thanks so much for stopping by..I will see you again soon.

Ahh Chrissy...I'm still sniggering about the butterfly wings...imagining someone trying to lick them :)))
Stunning card, very elegant and so beautifully crafted and designed. Exactly the right amount of lovely embellishments to frame the sentiment (which looks great btw)....and an equally gorgeous box to present it in!

The theme you picked sounds perfect for the couple receiving this, and it looks gorgeous. I've never made a matching card gift box like this, it's a lovely detail for a special occasion.

This is absolutely stunning Chrissy! I am loving that font, can you remember what you call it? Lovely and dry and mild here, thank goodness. We had enough rain in August and September to last all winter!
