Anniversary Gift Set

This weekend it is our pastor and wife's wedding anniversary. I was asked to make an anniversary card and a something to put the gift card in. They will be giving them this during Sunday service. Eek! But I had so much fun putting this gift set together. Loved the way it turned out!

Here is a close-up of the card. I even made a matching envelope (that was a first for me).

And a close-up of the gift card tin. I've had this tin for months now and new one day it would come in handy. The tin actually came with brads in it. I stored the brads and saved the tin. So FYI, don't throw away those gorgeous tins some of your scrap supplies come in!

And this is the inside of the gift box. The verse is from Song of Songs 8:7 "Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away." I put the same verse in the inside of the card.

Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock (black), My Little Yellow Bicycle Patterned Paper (Scrap4Life Feb Kit), Stampin' Up Stamps, Prima Flowers, Black Sheer Ribbon (unknown), misc button, floss, Making Memories Rhinestone Brad, Stampin' Up Ink (Classic Black), Colorbox Ink (Merlot)

I'm off to get my hair cut!! Have a wonderful and blessed weekend! God Bless You!
