Card Box and Card

At my recent card class we made this card box to hold the five cards we made, although only one coordinated with the box. I've previously posted the other four cards. The nice thing about this box is that it is made with a piece of 8½" x 11" card stock, although we cut the length to 10¼".
Here it is with cards inside. The box is Rich Razzleberry with a piece of Floral District dsp on the front.
This is the coordinating card that you see inside the box. Amazing how different the colors look on my scanned card! But it is the same paper. Actually, the card is the same card we demonstrators made at our recent stamp fest with just a slight change (I also learned how to make the box at the stamp fest). At the time of my class, I did not have the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set that fit with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies, so I simply used the greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and cut it with one bitty banner and mounted it on the larger one. I've since received the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.
Also, I was using up some of my now-retired Daffodil Delight grosgrain ribbon, although our new stitched grosgrain ribbon is even nicer.
