Anniversary Box Card

If you are looking for my Growing In Unity post for today, click HERE!

Hello all!  It is my turn to post on the SVG Attic blog, and today I am sharing a box card I created for my husband's grandparents who celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary this year.  A milestone like that deserves an extra special card, so I modified the one in SVG Attic's Wedding Wishes set just a bit to have it work for an anniversary.
 On the back panel, I omitted the words that were supposed to be on it and placed the bouquet higher up.
Here is a peek at the beautiful formal elements that create the center parts of the card.
 Look at those rings!  I used DCWV's Glitzy Glitter silver cardstock for the diamond and it just shines!
 On the front, I also changed the words from what the file included.  I simply cut out "60 years" to fit on the front panel.  For added touches, I used Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine under the "60" and I also added flowers on the side flaps of the box.  Those flowers were cut from the bouquet flowers.
The best part is that it all folds flat!  I used my scoring board to create the envelope.  I started with a 11" square and scored each diagonal side at 4.25".  They loved the card!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
