Card Front Builder Gift Box Tutorial - but not for Christmas

As you have hopefully seen over the last few days, the brand new Card Front Builder dies are fabulous for Christmas but they have potential for so much more.

This box would be perfect all year round. 

The gorgeous cut out detail on the lid is made using those fabulous Card Front Builder dies - definitely not just for Christmas.

It is just so pretty and really makes this look like a very luxurious gift box.

I have left the box open - but you could pop some window sheet behind or you could add some contrasting colour card - both would look stunning.

My colour combination is Wisteria Wonder with Berry Burst and the Dapper Denim with Emerald Envy. 

I have used the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon - I have a love/hate relationship with this ribbon - it looks so pretty but I really so have to fight the urge to iron it!

What do you think? Gorgeous or needs an iron?

The sentiment and the flower stamped in the back ground comes from Beautiful Bouquet I am using this set a lot at the moment. It is a really good set to have in your collection - lovely floral images and great sentiments.

To see just how I made this box, do check out my tutorial HERE.

To help you get a head with your Christmas crafting, everybody that orders the Carols for Christmas bundle from me in August will receive a free card kit class by post from me.
