Happy Sapphire Anniversary Mum and Dad!

Good morning everyone!
It's my parent's Sapphire wedding anniversary tomorrow so I decided it warranted something very special!

*This is a post of epic proportions - please do read through for instructions*

First of all, here is a picture of the whole gift...

Can you see the card in a box? That is my first one and I am quite pleased with it! So here's how I made it...

1. Take an A4 piece of cardstock and along the long edge, score at 7cm, 14cm, 21cm and 28cm. The little section will be your flap to join it together.

2. Along the short edge, score at 7cm across three of the panels. The one you leave unscored will be your back panel.

3. Fold along all your edges and assemble.

4. Cut 3 strips of matching card 9cm x 2cm and score 1cm from each end. Fold along each score the opposite way from the other. Attach inside the assembled card.

5. Use acetate to attach all your elements, always checking the card closes properly.

Silver embossed my elements onto blue shiny card from my stash.

The numbers are cut using Bigz Typset Alphabet and Glimmer Paper and the heart is from Language of Love.

The sentiment panel is made using the flourish from Morning Meadow and the phrase from Express Yourself.

A picture of the full card...

I also made an envelope. using my Envelope Punch Boadr, for their gift voucher and tied with White Organza Ribbon, decorated with another heart.

The final gift was a personalised bottle of Champagne!

I simply used MDS to design and print the label, then gold embossed the flourish from Happy Day!

I thoroughly enjoyed making these for my parents! Below is a list of the products I is rather product heavy, sorry!
