A Wedding gift box card .............


This wedding card has a little box inside for a small gift - the paper is by Pion from here and I added 32mm cream vintage style fine cluny lace and Rose Petal seam binding which I wrinkled for added effect.  I added my usual mulberry roses and doohickey swirls plus a Zva pearl swirl and some dark brown pearls from stash.  The round sentiment is a LOTV stamp cut out with a nestie. 
Lace, seam binding, mulberry flowers and pearl swirl all from here


 Just untie the ribbons and it opens like a book - it was tricky cutting out the shape in the box for the mount and then adding the acetate sheet but I think it looks quite nice.  This box card looks like a book when it is closed up and I am entering it into this weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge 'box of tricks'

----------------

Andrea and I had a fantastic day at the NEC yesterday - we met up with some absolutely lovely ladies including Kath, Dawny P  and Tab from the Ribbon Girl DT plus Jane of Millies Marvels, Kim Piggot, Jo of Boots the Monkey plus Anne and Lucy from LOTV - crafters are such lovely, lovely people!! I am hoping that one of you girls can give me a copy of the photos taken in Wetherspoons so I can add one to my blog! 
See you soon, Mary G x
