I decided to use my Saturday to make the card box for our gift table. Our theme is “Modern Rustic”. Mostly because I love Rustic, but like clean lines and not too much clutter. Our colors are light turquoise and apple green. I painted the egg myself and did a crackle finish on it, hence the close-up. And it’s hard to tell in the pics, but there’s jute rope around the hole on top.
Anyways, check it out. I like it, but I feel like it’s missing something, even though I don’t want too much fru-fru. Gimme some critiques!

I am not sure about the white “ruffle” around the cardbox. I love the nest and egg!

i would add something to the egg/nest area… maybe a little “banner” of paper w/ your names on it or the date? i think the ruffle needs a little something more, too. or if you’re iffy about the ruffle, i’d wrap that area with one layer of ribbon with a layer of lace overlayed on top.

I think it’s perfect! We are theme twins- I have a modern rustic theme too 🙂

If I may be honest? With the white ruffle, it almost looks like a trash can :/ I think PP idea about ribbon or lace would look nice. I love the egg and the rope!

Perhaps paint or write your names on the egg, add some greenery or feathers coming out from under the nest? You could glue a row or two or jute twine around the top of the white ruffle, too. If I may ask, what kind of box is that?
