Simply Elegant - Card Box - Video Tutorial

In today's Video I show you how I created this lovely Card Box. The size differs depending on whether you are creating a Box to hold A2 or A6 sized cards ... but it's 1½" deep.

I used the stunning Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper for this project. One side of each design has gorgeous foiling - in copper, silver and/or gold. 

The Butterflies were created using the Brilliant Wings dies.

The Box will comfortably hold 6 cards and envelopes. I made all of them different using each of the designs from the paper pack.

All the Butterflies are different and I added either Gold, Silver or Copper depending on what colour was in the paper.

Here is the Video ...



                                                                       A6 - Europe                  A2 – US
