Christmas box and matching card

Hello crafty souls Ulrika here!

I think it´s really nice to have a matching box with your card when you give it to someone really special! I think my sons teacher will get this box and card as Christmas gift. It´s really easy to fold your own box just make sure the box is a bit larger than your card so the card will fit in your box.

For my card and box I used papers from Swedish Maja Design. 

 The lid on the box and the card inside have similar design but still slightly different. On my lid I framed the image with a snow themed chipboard frame. 

 I chose white, grey and silver grey flowers for my flower cluster. For more shapes and textures I also added white frosted berries and white bead stamens.

 When you open the box you find the card inside.

 I used the same shape for the image but framed it different.
On both papers and embellishments I used Gesso for some white wash and highlights. I think the white Gesso add to the wintry feeling almost looking like snow.

Thank you for visiting Wild Orchid Crafts blog today!

  1. This is stunning!!!! I always make boxes for my cards, but do not embellish them as much as you do. This is simply work of art!
