"Thank You" Boxed Set

I attended a wedding last Saturday afternoon. I told the bride that my gift to her and her new husband would be to make her Thank You card. This is what I came up with. The box is based on the one in my previous post - I increased the dimensions so it was large enough for 16 cards and envelopes. The bride and groom are both Sri Lankan by birth and the bride's dress was a stunning red sari. I took my inspiration from that sari. The image and the sentiment are from the Artfully Asian set. I stamped the blossom branch in Basic Black on Real Red cardstock and coloured the blossoms with a Gold gel pen (non-SU). I mounted the image on metallic gold cardstock. The base card is also Real Red that I stamped using the Sanded background stamp for some texture. The sentiment is gold embossed.

I hope that they like this set.

I'm sure they would have loved this set. Simple but very elegant and how clever of you to match in with her wedding colors.
