Trinket Box Card Set

Hand made gifts are a special way of telling some one you care. 
I decided to make boxed card set.
Embellished more simply which is a change for me but I like the end result

This box measures 4 1/2 x 4 x 3 1/2 inches in size and was constructed using  
medium weight chip board.

I used some fairly neutral papers to create a more simple decorative style. 
The scrapmatts chip board packs I used were 

STAMP ATC     ATC10-006
HINGES 01    CB1124

The ATC 's were dry embossed and then inked using distress ink ( victorian velvet )
and the hinges were wet embossed with antique gold embossing powder.
This powder was a perfect match for the metal work I used.

The cards measure 4 x 3 inches and i made envelops to match. 
The base card is made from Kraft card stock I love the natural rustic feel of this type of card stock.

This box can hold 10 cards, 3 are displayed here. 

The scrapmatts packs used on the cards were the following

FLOWERS 09    CB1145
LEAF SPRAY 01    CB1146

I used the same paper collection as mats for the cards.

I kept the inking the same on the cards to tie the cards and box together as one project.
