Fun & Fast Notes Gift Box

One of my co-workers asked me to make a box of cards for a girl she knows who is going off to college. She is also the same person I made the Lovely as a Tree and Bella Rose stationary boxes for. I was thrilled when she asked for another one :) This time I decided to make the A2 card box I have been making recently. I also cased myself for the cards and use the shadow box technique I used for my aunt's get well card. The funny thing is that when I case something, I do it from memory. So my second version always turns out slightly different than the original. I also made the box to match the cards. The top was made from Ruby Red and the bottom (which you can't see in the picture) is Kraft).

There are six cards and envelopes inside the box and although there are two of each image, all of the sentiments are for a different occasion (with the exception of the birthday cakes--although I did use two different birthday greetings). Each also has a different textured background thanks to my Big Shot and Texture Plates, however, it's hard to see from the picture.
Also, on a different note...I heard back from Tenny about how my cards and Post It holders were doing at his store and he said that six out of the eight Post It's have sold and there has been interest in my card boxes, however, they haven't yet. I was thrilled that anything sold! I will keep you all posted :)
