Fall Flowers - Thanks Gift Box and Cards

I am pleased how this set of four cards and card box turned out.  I will be using this as a hostess gift.
When I started digging through my wonderful Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper (DSP), the Fall Flowers pack caught my eye.  I love Stampin' Up!'s paper, no guess work in figuring out what cardstock will match the paper.  The names of the coordinating colors can be found in the catalog along with the description of the DSP pack.  The Fall Flowers DSP is retired; however, every year Stampin' Up! comes out with new patterns and I have never been disappointed with the fall designs. 

I designed the card and was happy with the finished product so I continued to make three additional cards.  I couldn't stop there...I knew they would work perfectly with the card box.

I love the Gift Box and Cards. I have tried to go to the website listed to get the instructions for the gift box but the site is no longer available. Can you possibly email me the directions? My email address is:
