A card and a box companion

Hi bloggers and followers,

Today I am sharing a card and a box.  It turns out square or rectangular boxes are much easier to make than the round boxes.  This set is made with a Sue Wilson's die cut from the Spanish Collection "Seville" (4 dies set).

I was inspired by a video of a box base here, she also has a card to go with it on another video which I did not watch yet. A card and a box set out of the same die set that had been used.  You can also see some of the flowers I have done a tutorial on here.  If you scroll up from the flower tutorial you will also find how to make the yellow stamens out of paper clay on my blog as well.

The vine with swirls you see in the back of the flowers is by Joanna Sheen so here are the photos and some more details...

I colored the leave edges with a sponge dauber and then added very little on the rest of the leaves

I used the same flowers on the card and on the box

Half pearls were added about the acetate window

I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Thank you for visiting and following my blog


  1. Very pretty, I love the way the pearls give it a delicate look.

  2. That is beautiful set ..... the die you've used is so detailed - it looks like lace at first glance
    The pearls add a touch of "luxury" .... what lady doesn't like pearls?
    Pink, pearls & flowers - what a classy combination

  3. A beautiful card Nikky and the box is perfect to present it in. I haven't got any but I do like those dies that Sue has put out. They certainly make lovely cards

  4. Really lovely dies, flowers and pearls. Your flowers are always amazing to see. What a nice card with gift box for someone special in your life. Thanks for sharing. Geri
