Another card with matching gift box from me today. I was asked by my daughter Hayley to make a card and box like the ones I did for my other daughter Freya's birthday for Natasha, one of her at work and this is what I came up with.
Natasha will be 21 and loves black, white and pink so I just had to use these colours.
I started with a basic easel card base and using designer backing papers out of my craft stash decided on the layout. I used pink paper to mat and layer. The image is from Lili of the valley.
I have used a Marianne Design die Doily Circle LR0168 to cut and emboss the circle on the left hand side, my circle and scalloped circle nestie dies for the 21st sentiment on the right hand side which also is a stamp from Lili of the valley, black and white plaid ribbon for the bow on the base and pink roses around the image and 1 rose on top of the bow. The leaves have been cut using a Leone M punch. I have also added 2 charms, a handbag and a shoe, on a chain and fixed to the front of the card.
The box measures 15 x 15 and has exactly the same layout as the card but where the image is on the card I have added Hayleys message to Natasha, the box does have a frilly border which I made using a Martha Stewart Deco flowers punch around the page punch.
