Goodbye Wild Rose & Porcelain Prints

I'm so sad that the In Colors are retiring and that means a lot of the Designer Series Paper that have the In Colors will be retiring too. Porcelain Prints in one of my favorites so I decided to make some cute cards and a box to go with them. I've been wanting to make this box I received as blog candy from the very talented Kelly Lunceford. Here is a pattern:

I've also been trying to experiment with taking pictures of the cards. I'm not satisfied with how the lighting is turning out. I use several different lights, but I keep getting a shadow. So in this picture I took away the piece of white cardstock that I was using for the back. Do you think it looks better that way? Can anyone give me some hints and tips on lighting?

I made three boxes. For the first one, I used wild wasabi cardstock and then some of the Porcelain Prints dsp on the front.
For the next two boxes I used the Porcelain Prints dsp as the box.

Make sure to check back this next week when I post one of these boxes as blog candy!

Hello I love this box I tried to get the template but it no longer exists anyway you can tell how to get the template the women in my family have a cookie swap every year instead of gifts and we trade recipes and I think this would be an economical gift to give them. If you can help me I would really appreciate it. Thank you!
