wedding card box

my awesome nephew and his beautiful fiance got married last week and i headed home to nz for the wedding. 
it was just devine.
i wanted to give them a handmade gift and used their wedding invitation as inspiration.

the card was all lacey and vintagey looking. 
i layered the card with a variety of lace and trim from my stash and a luxurious red satin ribbon
dsp was from stampin up and i added some rub-ons to give it a bit more of a vintagey feel

the card box was actually a recipe box from kaisercraft but i adapted it.
i wanted something useful but pretty adn got the idea of a wedding card box off the interwebs.

 the top of the box uses the same lace and trim as the card. 
i also added some suede paper flowers and stamped the paper with the retired elements of style stamp set. the box was painted first with razzleberry ink and then once the dsp was on i sponged more ink aroudn the edges.
 inside i decorated with the stamped card and some dsp.
 the combined package.
made it safely all the way to nz thank good ness.
the beautiful couple

take care

cheers ears
