All the stamping is done with the gold embossing powder unless stated.
Taking the white card stock and the paper from the collection with the piano print, cut x 2, 20.8 cm x 14.8 cm. Using the Oval die, cut a oval from one of the card stock and one of the patterned papers for your card front. Adhere these together and put aside for later. Cut from the white cardstock the accordion sides 14.8 cm x 6 cm. Make folds at 1.5 cm, 3 cm, and 4.5 cm.  Sharpen the folds. Adhere these to the 14.8 cm end of the remaining white card stock. Adhere the patterned paper to the background, covering the accordion side placement. Taking again the white cardstock and the outer oval die segment, cut x 5 to make chipboard. After adhering the die cuts together, adhere the chipboard to the oval hole. Stamp the shoe image and die cut with the matching die. Cut also, x 4 extra. Adhere together to make chipboard.

Taking the green and red card stock stamp and die cut the flowers and leaves. Use the forest moss ink with the water brush to give color tints to the leaves. Use the shaping tool to give shape. Adhere to the shoe using the flower pattern as a guide, also making a cluster adhere flowers and leaves to the right side of the oval.

Using the die to cut the bow x 4 with the red cardstock. Adhere together as you would make the bow, but fold back on it's self to make a double bow. Adhere in place. Taking the card stock, make the sentiment cluster. Adhere this to the right side of the oval, the sentiment, adding leaves and smaller flowers.

Now that you have completed all the adhering of embellishments, you can attach the front to the accordion sides.
This was not so detailed as my normal cards. I tried to keep it simple...not too bad. Next up...true to sussipoppins inky fingers.....

The empty box.

 .....and now the box filling....

 Can never get enough close ups...and today is no exception!

 Here you see the gesso masking on the tag and the inking.

Chose the design paper from the paper collection to cover the box. Cut from the Egg shell white card stock for the note tags, cut x 8, 14.5 cm x 9.5 cm 

Use the mask and gesso to bring texture to the corners of the box and the note tags. When dry, using the inks, bring color to the gesso and corners of the box to give a vintage distressed effect. 
Love the gold embossing then the stickler on top...double bling!

Stamp and die cut the rose boarders for the box and note tags, flowers and leaves, the shoe, the dress on the hanger, the vines, the small bow and the sentiment with the shoe. Bring color to all the die cuts with the inks, re-ink the edges with the Walnut Stain. Adhere first, the boarders to the box and to the top of each tag. Adhere the remaining cut note tags to the back of each tag. This will strengthen the tag and cover any ink smudges made while inking. Adhere any paper matting to the tags, the photos, ribbons and bows. Add the flowers, leaves etc to fill and decorate the photos. See the close ups. ( If you want to, there is room for notes and journaling on the back of the tags.
For the front of the box, mat the sentiment with the red cardstock. Ink and distress the edges. Adhere the ribbon to the box then place the sentiment. 

Add the bow, the flowers and leaves. 

Adhere a bead to the center of each flower. To finish add the stickles to the shoe, flowers, leaves and roses on the boarders. 

Roses on the dress hangers and anywhere else you desire.

Here are more shots of the tags to give you an idea of what I did. enjoy.

You can see the gesso masking on the tag...color with the distress inks to give depth.
