Forgotten Meadows Gift Box Card by Meredith Hilly

Forgotten Meadows Gift Box Card by Meredith Hilly.

Hello everyone.
 I love to give cards with something extra as a gift. I used the Forgotten Meadows paper to cover my gift box card and fussy cut out a frame from the papers. Using foam tape I stuck it along with a gold leaf and a white flower.

I attached this tiny door knob to open the card and stuck a key on the leaf to give the impression that this was the key to unlock it. A gold ribbon was tied around the card to keep it closed.

I just love this owl and used it on the spine of the gift box card. I glued a small frame to highlight the owl and then filled it with Glossy Accents. Once dried it gave the frame a  deep gloss. Like a lacquer.

When you open the gift box card enclosed is a small treat to eat. This could be changed to enclose bath crystals or lottery tickets. Your imagination is the limit. On the left hand side is a pocket where you can write your message on the gift tags.

There is a clear plastic sheet to see the goodies through and a flap at the top to get them out.
I used small gold corners to frame the card and rubbed Inka Gold Paint on all the edges of the card. The Inka Gold Paint comes like a shoe polish consistency and I find you can colour most any surfaces with this. Like the love heart pin on the cover was white and I rubbed a bit of the Inka Gold on it and this made it blend into the gold and white colour theme I was going for.

This gift box card is no bigger then your hand and I find it is a lot of fun to make and give to someone special.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my project.
