Damask Wedding - the box

Here as promised, is the box to match & co-ordinate with the damask cut-work card.  This time a lot more simplistic in design even though it matches and nice & deep of course, to accommodate the shaped card with flowers on the top.

Additional sentiments on the box's liner

I have used the same LOTV image "Wedding Couple", coloured with Promarkers as I had used on the tag inside my card but kept the layering nice & flat to make it easier to transport to this special event. (I haven't done a close-up photo of the image as I usually do as it is so similar to the one on the card's tag, even in a circular mat, that it is probably not necessary. However, if you missed the shaped card in my previous post & want to see it the link is here).  If I am creating a matching set like this I always colour the images at the same time - whatever I do to one, I do to the other to ensure they match as much as possible.  The cut-work was done using my Silhouette Cameo of course - an enlarged variation of the design for the top of the box to match that of all the various ones on the card itself.  I also used an individual element from my pattern along each of the sides of the box to allow the shimmering pearlescent gold card placed behind, to peek through. As I always do, I added a selection of suitable & meaningful sentiments to the box's liner.

The box - shown with  the card. so you can see how they coordinate.

CAS - lovely & flat!
