A December to remember wedding card.

Good Afternoon. 
Iv been very bad and not blogging as of late, where is the time going? Been busy with Christmas commission cards, cards for fayres & cafés. All other commission cards and Hunkydorys recent collections. Just received the next one yesterday. 
 The ladies in Franco's cafe - where my cards are being sold, well some of the chefs is getting married next week and they ask if I would make a card, but also a box. The colour theme is cream and purple- cadburys chocolate purple. I really wanted to make it extra special. So I used my large score board from crafters companion aswell as their brand new flower die'sire die that was part of their 4 Day Deal shows last week. Could work out what topper to use so I decided on a Kanban love topper from their all occasion collection. To give it extra depth and touchy-feely I used my embossing folders and my tonic studios die, adding pearls and bows to finish it off. 
 The box was made by taken 2 pieces of 10 & 1/4 - ten and a quarter x 10 & 1/4 - ten and a quarter card stock. Then scoring at 1" all the way round. My base I used Centura pearl card stock and for the top I used the A3 elegant card stock both by Crafters Companion. I added some more flowers that I layered 3 times each, a sentiment in a tag - Done. 
 I was so pleased with how it turned out, especially the purple and ivory/cream colour.
