Card set for a friend

Today I would like to share a set of cards I created for a friend for a card swap and for my August Card classes.
I used the Sentimental Prints for this card set.  The layout was the same on each, I just changed the colors on each.
It is hard to see in the picture, but I used a 1:1 ratio of Journey Glaze to water and used this to spray the raised image.  While it was still wet, I sprinkled glitter over it.
Here are the four cards all together.
I then created sentiments on little stripes of paper.  The idea is that the recipient would then tie the sentiment they wanted to the black gingham ribbon as they wanted to use the card.
Next, I wanted the cards to be presented in a matching box.  Here is the box I created.
This box was so easy to create.
First, cut a piece of cardstock in the desired color.
Next, score the following measurements:
Fold on all of your score lines.  Then using your favorite adhesive, put a small amount on each of the flaps with squiggly lines on them.  Pull the tabs up and attached to the back side of the Cardstock that is perpendicular to the flap.
The two inch flap at the top, just place the flaps inside the box.
Then take a 2 x 11 strip of Cardstock and wrap it around the 2 inch top.  Add your favorite embellishments and you have a box for your set of cards.  Enjoy!
