Happy 60th wedding anniversary boxed card

I have been asked to make a 60th wedding anniversary card for a very special couple...I thought I would make it in cream and black as I think its quite a classy colour combo.
I used my new spellbinders mystical embrace card creator die . I used cardstock from creative expressions. The ribbon is from Meiflower crafts .The gem centre is from wild orchid. .The fab bow was tied using my Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker...I love this piece of kit and it site on my desk for every bow I tie. You can find out all about it Here

The pins are handmade too, there is a tutorial under my header above so you can have a go at making them for yourselves. I used the computer to create the wording and I made a matching box and used a pretty resin  cameo on the ribbon  that I attached with Velcro so you can open and close the box
