For this gift card box, Teresa used a clear acetate box by creating a wrap for it with beautiful patterned papers. The top piece is one of the printed cards on the paper to frame with the Heirloom Rectangle die. She cut apart the Royal Love Strip die cut and used the heart to make a rose collage in the corner for a more lacy and feminine look. Details in the dies make this gift so beautiful – try this for your next gift giving occasion for that WOW! factor.
