All Boxed Up

Do you ever make a card with dimension and lots of delicate embellishments on them, and then wonder how on earth you are going to send it; as an envelope would surely squash and spoil all your creativity!

Well here is a quick solution create a thin gift box and place the card inside, the recipient will feel so special to receive a card in a custom made box.

I made a card with delicate flowers on here, and this is the box that I created in which to place it.

All boxed up

The box has been distressed with Tim Holtz Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade inks and then stamped over with Penny Black's Damask Pattern 40-110 and then faux twine was added using Embellishments 30-161.

I had a flower left over from the Creating Chrysanthemums card, video on how it is made here. Using Spellbinders Anemone Flower Topper S5-067, I added it to the New Spellbinders D-Lite Ornamental Tag one S2-031 to finish off.

Don't forget there is still time to enter Penny Black's For The Family Challenge, details for entry can be found here.
