Wedding Card with a Box

Hello everyone
I am terribly sorry for not writing any sooner. Was working on this big order and it had occupied most of my time and the rest I was indulging myself with Diwali celebrations. I am still in hurry and so this will be a short a sweet post. My new project is wedding cards with an easel opening box attached to the card itself.
The dimensions for this box is 7.5" by 5.5" and 1" thickness. There are 2 leaflets or this card and they are 5.75" by 3.75".
These are multiple layers of cardstock which was used to create layering effect as well as to add to the sturdiness of the card. The first leaflet is adhered tot he face of the box and the second is hidden in the pocket behind the first card. I have added an eyelet as well as some red organza ribbon and gold pearl string as a makeshift tassel.
I have incorporated white gold pearl cardstock which are 270 gsm and Red cardstock 250 gsm to build the entire card. I have created my own background using WOW gold embossing powder, WOW embossing gun and Versamark inkpad. I did some repetitive stamping using a single stamp to create the background effect. I have used the flourish from the Vintologic stamp set from hampton art for this purpose.
To create the easel box, I have used chipboard and White iris cardstock. I center box is 6.5" by 4.5" in size and 0.75" in height. I have used gold net fabric to cover the entire box and then added a white gold pearl paper as the base inside the box. The bottom of the box is chipboard which is covered with pearl paper and then layered with red cardstock. For the opening of the box, I have used some white iris cardstock to create the hinges.
The card is completed with a simple red organza ribbon, Mft die cut florishes with are glitter gold embossed and a gold bead.
This box is held by magnets.
That's all the information about this project.
I am putting up this project at Mod Squad Challenge Blog and Ranganjali.
