Gold Valentine

Another Valentine card. This one is for my friend Sofia's sister-in-law. I chose a completely different color and went with off-white and gold. I took my inspiration from Laura’s sketch at 2SfY. I Tried to do something different this time. Instead of an envelope I decided I should make a box without a lid. There is no lid but I have used gold net to cover the top.

I stitched the box together with double gold thread.

For decoration I cut strips of same chart paper and wrapped gold thread all around it and glued some sequins. All four sides have this look. The box is 4.5x4.5




Now for the inside; the card is 4x4 and has a belly band. It is a tri-fold card. I decorated the inside to the minimum; Hence, no photos of the inside.
