My BFF had her 60th Birthday this week and I wanted to make a special card for her so I made a version of a card that I made for another great friend, Barb Campbell. Yvonne's card is purple and I used a few different dies to get a garden feel because she loves to garden.
Unfortunately, these cards do not fit in an envelope so I made a white box for her card. I was going to put some ribbon around the box to dress it up a bit. Here's the card in the plain white box.
I had some time this afternoon before she arrived for dinner so I decided to dress up the box a bit. I pulled out some pretty designer paper for the top and layered that on black. I looked at the clock and I still had some time and then I remembered that the Cheery Lynn Challenge was to use lace so I decided to add a panel with some gathered lace and top that with a Cheery Lynn Burlap pattern die. Then I went to my scrap box to see what other goodies would look nice on the box top: a flower, some leaves, some ribbon, a musical stave, a butterfly .... In other words, the box top was an after thought that just sorta evolved. All the embellishments that made up this design were already cut and awaiting a project.
I think the box turned out as pretty as the card. Love having things around that help bring a project together.
The flower is Heartfelt Arianna Blooms that is stamped,embossed with Wow white embossing powder and then sponged and cut with the matching dies. I used some prills in the center.
