70th Box Card

I made this box card for a friend turning 70.

The top of the box I used:

Joy Crafts Dies - Circle French Lily
Heartfelt Creations - Arianna Blooms
Cheery Lyn - Fanciful Flourish
Lea-bilities - Flower Blossom (Leaves only)
Heartfelt Creations - Layered Elegant Swirl
Poppycrafts - Happy Birthday Cake (Banner Only)
Avery Elle Elle-ments Dies - Count on it
Pearls, Rinestones in flower centre

Around Box Lid:
Martha Stewart Punch - Deco Shells
Poppycrafts - Bow

Inside Box:
Same Flowers and Flourish.
Cheery Lynn - Babys Breath Flower Kit
Poppycrafts - Numbers
Poppycrafts - Happy Birthday Present with Balloon (words only)
Memory Box - Cascadia Butterfly Trio
Impression Obsessions - Butterfly Set
Memory Box - Dancing Butterflies
Ultimate Crafts - Butterfly Freedom
Marianne - Elegant Butterfly

I made a little box inside the card that fitted the boxed gift inside it with 
a lid easily able to be taken off.  The base of the crafted box was pasted down 
but the gift box can be removed easily.

One flap had a pocket with a slide out card to write the sentiment on.

Something different, easy but time consuming.
The end result is totally worth it.

Happy Crafting.
Crafty Hugs, Carol.
