TOGETHER FOREVER Wedding Box Card

Together Forever, title


Wedding Box Card
One of the nicest things about a wedding is the beautiful colour scheme and the way all the pieces come together on that special day. 
The colour "Spa" was the inspiration for this card. It was my daughter's colour choice for her bridesmaids' dresses. It's a lovely watery shade that went so beautifully with the light gray suits the groom and his men wore.

In the Making

The following pictures show the box card in its early stages. "Together Forever" sentiment is embossed and lightly glittered. I love this Mr & Mrs silver cardstock. It's perfect for lower outside panels. I continued the Mr & Mrs theme on the centre front flap, and cut it from sparkly paper.

Wedding Attire


Groom's suit is gray with sparkly lapels. His "Spa" coloured tie matched the bridesmaids' dresses perfectly!

This bridal gown is a different style than the one actually worn by the bride, but I think it's quite pretty.

I used real "diamond tulle" fabric as an overlay on the bridal gown. Narrow "Spa" ribbon folded in half gives another accent of colour. A crystal flower adorns the waistband for extra sparkle. The neckline is dressed up with sparkle, too.

The Rings

Symbol of love forever, wedding rings need special attention.

These are cut from the shiniest silver foil and accented with -- as you would expect, diamonds. Okay, not real diamonds but they are real crystal.


Decorated Flaps

For the side flaps, I created my own phrases in Cricut Design Space.Together Forever box card flaps, by Grace Baxter

Back Panel and Verse


Happily Ever After, Sentiment and poem by Grace Baxter

In keeping with the "Forever" theme, I created another sentiment piece in PhotoShop.

I love the idea of "Happily Ever After" starting NOW. The finished oval fits perfectly on the back of the sign.

For the verse, I composed a little poem that is simple yet gives the message I want to say.

The ribbon and bow are from the "Sweethearts" cartridge.
