Mothers Day Tilda Easel Gatefold Box Card

Morning All..

This will be my last post before my little mini vacation to Texas... I will be back next Thursday the 12th :) I wanted to make something to wow you a bit, so I combined a fav of mine, gatefold, with a new fav box card with the most common and thats easel card, so heres what I got:
This is the view with the bottom of the box removed and set up
to show the inside of the trinket part of the box

This is with the Tilda slip cover removed
and gatefolds open...
There are 2 panels for journeling space.

This is the inside secret message
embellished with pearls and prima and
Reccollection flowers

This is another place for a personal sentiment

Just a side view of the gatefold completely open

Oh how I love this Tilda!
I just had to make her the focus!

This is a frontal view just as the card
would be given at presentation

This is the topper with the slip cover on

These are all the pieces to this
Mothers Day Card
The main part is the top of the box
which consists of the easel and gatefold components...
Then there is the decorated inside of the box....
and finally the lovely Tilda slip cover that holds the gatefold closed

I will be entering the following challenges:
