Asian Box Card with G45 Papers

Well, I am happy to have finally made one of those Box Cards that have been popping up all over the blogs. For a video tutorial, go to Splitcoast Stampers - link here.  I really wanted to make an Asian themed Box Card using the Graphic 45 Bird Song 8x8 pack papers. Recollection Black Card Stock was used for the base. Embellishments used are Metal Coins and Luck Medallion.  The metal fan is from Hanko Designs and their on line store can be found here. In the front of the box, The stamped and Gold embossed words are from Waltzing Mouse Asian Gardens Stamp Set  - Use a Tab Punch to make the words peek out of the edge.
Here is a closer look at the dies used from Tattered Lace Dies (www.tatteredlace.co.uk) cut using Recollections Kraft paper.  The Bamboo is a SVG cut file from Lettering Delights Asia. That metal Luck Medallion is from my stash. 
The back of the box is embellished with one of the Graphic 45 Bird Song 8x8 paper pack scroll paintings which fit perfectly in this spot.
 This is the card completely folded to fit into an A2 envelope:
Thank you for stopping by today to see what was made................hope you enjoyed it and are inspired to make one, too.
