Gift Box of Cards

Yesterday I was lucky enough to view some very talented ladies card creations in what's called a blog hop with the creative master Dawn Griffiths, organised by Kylie Bertucci ! My first ever look at a blog hop and OH WOW! 
I was so inspired I decided to make this gorgeous set of 5 gift box cards, CASEing one of Dawn Griffith's cards in the process and building on Juan Ambiba's 'Box on Note Cards'.
Each of these cards are C6 size 12cm x 17cm with slightly larger envelopes to accommodate the embellishments.
I calculated the measurements for the Envelope Box  by measuring the cards envelope size then realized that I had to use the last envelope size available on the board and add a second score line. I made the first score as per instruction on the board the added another score line 1 inch in from the first. I did this all the way around the cut 111/2 inch square.
