Box of Cards

Sorry I have not been posting as much lately, I had to have hip surgery a few weeks ago and am still recovering.  I should be back to full swing soon!  Thanks for your patience!!

I made this beautiful box and cards in a class with my good friend Sue.  The box is a 5" square chipboard box and I just cut paper to fit and glued it on.  The gold around the scallop edge and the edges of the flowers was done with a gold leafing pen from Krylon.

 All the cuts are from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.

The back of the bird and flowers.

The box will hold more, but I did 6  4x4  cards and envelopes.
