Box For Monochromatic Embossed Card

I decided to make a simple box for the Monochromatic Embossed Card. It made the card look even more elegant. How I would love to receive a special boxed card like this from someone :-).

I used the same flourish (from the Silhouette store) that I used on the card. This is the full shape of the flourish. I cut the one I used on the card. I put my friend's name on the same tag used on the card. The font used is called Channel Slanted 1. I hate the perforation marks but I was rushing this to deliver it to my friend who is expecting me this afternoon. I would normally adjust the cut settings for the perforation lines so they won't create cut marks on the paper. I always group the perforation lines together to separate them from the box as I cut them separately from the box. Just as well that I have a distressed theme for the card, the distressing ink kinda covered the perforation marks.

BTW, I put a piece of acetate (transparency film) on the back side of the top of the box. I'm not sure if it can be seen on the photos. The piece is included in the file. I put a nice tissue paper under the card but took the photos before I did. I wrapped the box with a nice tissue sheet and made a ribbon with my favorite Bow Maker.

For those who want the box, just indicate your request in your comment.

    Thank you again for your help. Unfortunately no matter what I do it won't transfer nicely into a cutting file. That is OK because I will print it off and cut it by hand. So don't worry about it. When I have lots of time I will try and figure it out. :)
    Your box for the card is absolutely gorgeous and so elegant.
    It is so nice to have another blogging friend.
