wedding card box

This post and the next couple are all projects I made for my niece who got married yesterday, obviously couldn't post it before today. The card I made in the next post wouldn't fit in an envelope and I thought the box might help it stay protected should she decide to make it a keepsake.

I used a magnolia wedding couple stamp and customised it by adding glassed for the groom as he wears specs and as Jess is having a red dress as there are rumours there will be a wiccan ceremony too I coloured the brides dress red. The flowers I added purple as a while ago they were asking if I could think of any purple flowers that would be seasonally in bloom now so I'm just guessing really.                                                                                                                                                Have to say I was quite pleased with the colouring of her dress as I am really trying to improve my colouring skills with folds and pleats but don't always manage to achieve the look very well.
I kept the box decoration quite simple limiting decoration just to the lid . I did co-ordinate the paper with that I used on the card and as its a Debbie Moore
 freebie download I could always print more. It has a lovely brocade pattern and is in a nice earthly green shade with tonal effects( unless that's just my aged printer that printed funny) .                                                                                                                                                                                    I mounted the fussy cut image onto a spellbinders die cut fancy circle in white and on a smaller die cut from the same set using sakura glaze pen wrote 'Mr and Mrs'.
