Artistically Asian Card & Gift Box - Real Red, Black & Gold

The Asian bold red & black with gold combo is traditional and well loved by many around the world. Think of all the lovely traditional clothing, the black lacquered home decor items, and so on. That is the inspiration for today's all occasion gift giving set of a box and card.

I made two black tassels using embroidery floss; one for the card and one for the box.

This six sided box is created using the Gift Bag Punch Board.

The collage below, shows the box from different angles. When filled with gold or red tissue with the gift, the hole at the top will not matter. The bottom is reinforced.

Now, on to the card. The black lacquered home decor I mentioned earlier, is the inspiration for heat embossing in the clear the bamboo stamp in this set as the background. The black tassel is attached to the back of that and attached to the card base.

I love how the circle, reminiscent of Asian coinage or medallions, turned out. 

Head on frontal look...

Side view for layering...

...and the inside view.

I had a lot of fun making this set, and hope that you are inspired to create with an Asian style.

Happy Stamping!
