Box on a card

A couple of years ago I was browsing through Pinterest, as I am sure we all do, for inspiration. I came across a card with a little gift box balanced on it. I then proceeded to try and find out to to make it. No luck so I just tried my own technique.
The card is your basic 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" size with the fold on top. With the card and folded I then opened it flat and scored at 2 1/2" and 4 1/2" and cut it to about 1 3/4" down to make a step.This what the card should look like.

All decorating can be done now. I used Stampin Up Fresh Florals DSP on the lower half of the card.The border on the top is from the Floral Phases stamp set. The sentiment came from That's the Tag stamp set. All stamping was done with the new Tranquil Tide stamp pad..
The next phase was making the little gift box. My box is a 2" box. The card stock is Tranquil Tide and decorated with Fresh Florals DPS.
Measurements for the box base is 6 x 6" scored at 2" all round. Cut your tabs and fold in and glue. 
For the lid I finally after many tries got the size right. Card stock 4 1/16" x 4 1/16" is perfect for the lid to fit snugly with no gaping. Once you have cut the tabs fold and glue. Here is my finished project.


Hope you like it and of course you can put what ever you like in the box - candle, chocolate or jewelry.
