Stationary Box & Matching Cards

I made this stationary box and cards for a friend for Christmas. Blue is her favourite colour. I found the template on a template website under the name 'Treasure Box'. (Because of the amount of time that has passed, I don't remember which one...if I find it again, I will give proper credit.)

Here is a close-up of the box. The paper was from a Close To My Heart Heart of Winter campaign a couple of years ago...the Serendipity Project Pack. (It came with B&T paper, CS, CS shapes, and a stamp set.) I didn't get a measurement of the final size, but it holds 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cards and envelopes.

I made a second stationary box and card set to trade for some 3x3 envelopes, (thank-you Sandy!!!). On Sandy's, I clear embossed the flower on the front, which made it stand out even more.
Here's a view of what the box looks like opened.
I used the textured cs flowers that came with the Serendipity Paper Pack on the inside of the lid.

I made 6 cards to go in the box (card size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). The sentiments on all the cards are clear embossed so that they 'pop'.
A close-up of the butterfly, to show the prisma glitter on the wings.

Recipe for all 6 cards (all CTMH unless otherwise noted): Serendipity Paper Pack, CS-Dutch Blue, Bamboo, Colonial White, and Outdoor Denim, Ink-Dutch Blue, Outdoor Denim, Bamboo, Desert Sand, and Black, SS-Whimsical Wings, Best Wishes, Adorable Backgrounds, Treasure Life, and Happy Birthday, Prisma Glitter, Navy & Light Blue Grosgrain Ribbon (non-CTMH), Clear Embossing Powder.

I just love, love, love this project. I hated the paper I've had over a year until I saw your box and cards!!!! What an amazing job!!! If you don't mind, I'm going to jump off of your art for inspiration (might even try to copy) but will definitely give you the wonderful credit you deserve!!!! Thanks so much! (P.S. I saw this a few weeks ago, forgot where I saw it and have been hunting since! So glad I finally found your post, again!!!! :) )
