Congratulations Tilda - A Birthday Card in a Pocket Box

01/06/2013 Update - This project was selected in the TOP 5 @ MDUC.
This creation was selected as a "Runner Up" @ Eclectic Ellapu Challenge Blog.

Hello ladies!

Several days ago Stephanie posted on her UStream channel a video tutorial in which she was showing how to make a very pretty pocket box mini album. I loved the idea, but instead of making a mini, I've put a card into my pocket box.

It rally maybe a perfect gift for someone you love and want to present a unique handmade gift. Here's my result:

Today we don't have a very sunny day, so the pictures turned out a little bit dark. Here's how the pocket box looks when closed:

All the flowers on this project are self-made. The lid has a magnetic closure.

I used glimmer mists for this big flower on the lid:

The box's depth is 0.5".

Starting to open it:

This time I've really tried to color the image in very pastel colors, to match the papers' color scheme. The papers, by the way, are from the First Edition "Bird Song" paper pad:

To make the flowers I used these punches:

The card measures 5 3/4" X 3 3/4".

The inside decoration:
