To bestie with love!

Hello,

Am back AGAIN with another card which I made on order.. Someone wanted to give  card to their best friend who she was meeting after a year.. The idea appealed to me.. It's been like forever since I saw my best buddy... So keeping my best buddy in mind plus the specifications the customer had.. I made a box card...

The box card is really fun to make and gives enough space to scribble if a person enjoy scribbling.. I love writing mush on my cards.. Nothing beats a few handwritten words...Especially to a friend you are meeting after ages...

So here goes the lid of the box (top view)


This is how the lid looks... The recipient is a butterfly lover and when I think of butterfly I am reminded of Tejal so this card is actually conceptualized based on what I would want to give to my bestie incorporating Tejal's love for butterflies... :D.. Thanks Tee... you truly are an inspiration!!

Side view 1:



This is how my box looks standing from one angle...

The other view:-


This is another angle.. I've made tag pockets on the two opposite "walls" of the box and put in a couple of tags.. Just to ensure the customer has enough space to express her love for her bestie..!!

Now the box card after it has opened:-


I love the color combo.. I know it's PINK but well Pink really does go well with the occasion...

Giving u detailed shots of the individual panels

This is the center of the box with the sentiment.. I absolutely love this sentiment and is so true about friends and times spent with them.. It is a memory we cherish forever...!!

The side inside walls...



Journaling tag sentiment.. perfect for friends...


Lots of adjectives used to describe the friendship between my customer and the recipient...


Another journaling tag... Journaling tags make life easy and solve a lot of my embellishing problems.. :D


And a cute digi of two friends holding hands and the box card is complete...
