Ruby Wedding Gift Box and Card

Good morning friends and fellow bloggers.   One of the ladies at WI asked if I could make her a box to hold money, which was to be the gift to her parents for their ruby wedding.  And of course their had to be a matching card. This is what I came up with.

My Gift Box





The box measures 16 cms x 9cms x 2cms, which is just slightly larger than a £20 note.

Recipe
White double sided centura pearl card - Crafters Companion
Dark red cardstock - from stash
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Lace with pearls - local haberdashery shop
Flat backed pearl string and  other pearls from stash
Faux Quilled Leaves - Sue Wilson
Diamond Strips and Accents - Spellbinders

My Card




(Never photographs well from this angle but it gives a better view of the diecuts.)

Recipe
Base Card - 7"x 5" stepper card Papermania
Dark red card - from stash
Diamond Strips and Accents - Spellbinders
Resplendent Rectangles - Spellbinders
Marvellous Squares - Spellbinders
Swan diecut - Nellie Snellen Hearts Dies
Pearls from stash
Computer generated sentiment

The card didn't take long to make because it is very similar to one I made a couple of years ago.  The  reason I am showing it is so that you can see how the card and gift box tie in together.

Fortunately the lady concerned loved the matching pair! Phew!  It's always a relief to hear that.

Hope this finds you all well and getting back to some form of normality - whatever that might be!!!!
