Card and Gift Box Set

Hello friends of Meg's Garden! Today I am sharing a card and gift box set with that I have created using papers from the stunning Butterfly Collection. When I saw this collection, my heart skipped a few beats as I simply love butterflies! I also love the rustic feel of this collection and of course the butterflies and the ephemera that is available.

For the design of my card, I picked up a blue/green hue from the paper and used it as my embellishment colour. I also used some Spellbinder's dies to create some borders to add an elegant touch to my card.

The box was decorated in a similar way to the card. I used a 4 x 12" strip to decorate the entire box. I also used similar flowers as well as fussy cut a butterfly to add dimension. I used some left over cardstock and Spellbinders Venetian Motifs die to create the corner piece on the four edges of the base of the box.
