Craft Rocket Challenges Number 18 Weddings and Things Can Include Weddings/Engagements/Anniversary

Hello and thank you for popping in. This is scheduled but I hope that it finds you all well.
The theme for Craft Rocket Challenges this fortnight is "Weddings and Things Can include Wedding/Engagement/Anniversary" I needed to make a 50th Wedding Anniversary card for my aunt and uncle and went for lots of gold mirri! I used a free font (allowed for personal use) and printed it out on my (cheap) lasre printer. It was then foiled with gold using my Patsy May Foil It machine. Strange how, not so long ago, we used mirri card on everything. Nowadays, I tend to use it for anniversaries like this and Christmas! The layout was inspired by this post . Why not have a go, I'd love to see some of your work entered as you're all so good. Craft Rocket Challenges are not tied to any sponsors, so anything goes, as long as it follows the theme. I also made the bag to hold the present to match. The bag was made with pieces of A4 card. To keep the height of the A4 - it needed to house a bottle of champagne. I created a 4 inch square box with a depth of 1 1/2cm and scored the 2 sheets of A4 card at 4 inches and 8 inches. The left over piece became the tab for joining them together and then "sat" this inside the box. I only have a small hole punch and next time I will use the small circular die that comes with the Pierced Tags dies
