Graphic 45 Couture Cards & Box

Recently I finished teaching a box and card set with Graphic 45's Couture line.  I kept the box and cards simple so the set could be made in a 3 hour class.  The cards don't have too many thick embellishments on them so 5 could fit in the box.

Rather than decorating the whole box I put the elegant peacock paper on the backside of it and made a belly band that slides on and off.  The picture and layer behind it are die cut with ovals and the peacock feather is tucked behind them.  I put a little piece of black paper behind the heart opening and inked the edges black.

I used the whole sheet called "Beautiful" for the belly band and cards.  It was the inspiration for this class. Here are the 5 cards.  They all have black bases and are A-2 sized.

 Tiny flowers are made by Maya Road.

 The pearl and rhinestone flower is made by Maya Road.

The scroll die cut is by My Favorite Things.
I taught this class 9 times.  The boxed set is good for a gift and many students made duplicates. I had a great time designing this class and teaching it too!
