Leaving - the box

This time I have created a box for my 'Leaving' card & all the cut-files I have used on this project are to coordinate with this particular card. To do this, I have recreated the part of the cut decoration of the card base edges around the sides of the box top & I also added a name plaque - cut in the same font as the welded name mat of the card.

I used the same papers (from Nitwits) as the card, not to mention the same Precious Moments image (I even managed to paper-piece the jacket as I had done previously even though it was a reduced size). The image was coloured with Promarkers at the same time as the one on the card to ensure I used exactly the same colours. I did create a different layout for this project though, even though elements echo those on the card to hint at what is enclosed within.

The card in the box.
The box base is kept plain & devoid of extra cut-work features but I do like to add a box liner - a perfect opportunity to add an extra sentiment which I hope the recipient will find meaningful.
