This is made using a punch I have had forever (probably one of the first ones I owned);  I am trying to use stuff I have, but maybe have forgotten or not used for ages.

The base card is heavy cream linen finish, so I punched 12 squares from light cream parchment paper  and made a larger square in gold paper for the centre, by punching four times.  It was really difficult lining up the punch to get a bigger square, so there were about 8 centres that ended up in the bin before I got a good one... then spacing ... ugh.

Punch: Dovecraft
Sentiment stamp: magazine freebie
gold embossed
Sentiment dies: Nellie's
metallic gold card

I deliberately left the sentiment open, as I thought I could use it for lots of occasions - maybe a golden wedding anniversary  or even as a sympathy card.
