As promised yesterday, here is another card to go inside the gift box card set. This Secret Garden Stamp Set is so versatile and fun to use.
Isn't this card darling? I am loving this creation I came up with. The card base is pool party and I used my color assistant to see that daffodil delight and island indigo are good color choices to go with it. I used versamark and stamped the 5 petal flower from the set all over the card base. Then on a piece of whisper white I stamped 3 yellow flowers, 3 lucky limeade leave pieces, and three lilies in island indigo. This lily stamp is an outline stamp and I LOVE IT. I then stamped and die cut one more lily and attached with dimensionals where I had stamped it on the piece so that it goes over the art piece. A real POW I think. And SO EASY with the FRAMELITS that match this stamp set. You MUST get this BUNDLE for 15% off!!
I stamped 3 yellow flowers and one island indigo lily on the envelop for FUN and to tease them about what is inside.
Here is another look at the gift box I made for the cards to go inside. What a fun gift someone will get!!
The little closure is the decorative label punch attached with flower brads. The point of the box top slides behind the closure.
OOOOOOOH, I am so excited to show you my card gift set made with the SECRET GARDEN stamp and framelits. You can purchase this as a BUNDLE to save 15% off the cost of the two items.

Now on to my creations:
First is this wonderful gift box to hold cards and envelopes. I saw this box on my fellow demo, Tanya Bell's blog. It is made from one 12 x 12 sheet of the cardboard that backs a package of designer paper (free cardboard to recycle).
I used the diagonal score plate to score a few lines, then snipped out only 3 pieces and VOILA - ready to make the box.
I came up with this idea to cover it - use a 12 x 12 piece of designer paper of your choice, and with Tombow glue, adhere it to the cardboard piece BEFORE you adhere your box together. Easy Peasy!!
A decorative label punch is used for the closure. Your point of the lid slips behind the punch. Cute, huh?
My first card:
Wisteria Wonder is the card base with only a portion run through the Vines textured impressions embossing folder. I used HALF of a doily (only $2.95 for 25 doilies in the spring catalog!!) behind my flowers that are stamped and die cut with my BIG SHOT and the Secret Garden Framelits. Calypso Coral ink for the flowers, each one stamped right after the other to make 3 different shades of the coral color.
Also die cut the leaves from Lucky Limeade CS. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the flowers. I used some retired mini beads for the centers of the flowers.
I used the other half of the doily as a stencil on the envelope and sponged Wisteria Wonder ink around it, and then removed the doily. This is where you would write the mailing address of this beautiful card. Isn't it fun??!!
Tomorrow I will show you another card that is in this gift set.
I would love to hear your comments/suggestions. Won't you leave me some love?

Sunday is St. Paddy's Day - so here's wishing the luck o' the Irish to ya'
The ColorQ 180 Challenge was to use Garden Green, Lucky Limeade, Basic Black, Basic Gray and White.
My card base is lucky limeade with Basic Gray sponged around the edges. I used an adorable little doily behind my clover centerpiece. The clover is made with the large heart punch and garden green card stock, as well as Printed Poetry designer paper. I added a cute little black and white polkadot ribbon as an accent.
This closeup shows how I put the DSP slightly in from the edge of the punched heart leaf so that it had a border of the main color behind it. I like how that looks.
I also used some black rhinestones in a swirl at each corner of my card, along with the garden green banner that has the sentiment "Got Green?" stamped on it with garden green ink.
I left my inside simple with a stamped clover punched out and ink sponged around the edges.
I hope you enjoyed my card today. Also, do not forget my BIG SHOT SPECIAL that I have going on until March 22nd. The details are below.

I chose very vanilla, crumb cake and soft suede as the color pallet for this card. I believe the colors and the fact there are no flowery accessories helps to make it masculine.
Postage Due and Artistic Etchings stamp sets create the stage for this card. I also used a very pale designer paper that I inked with soft suede around the edges.
I punched the postage stamps out with the postage stamp punch, then backed it with soft suede punched out with the scallop square punch.
I added one straight line of the victorian lace ribbon because it fit the old fashioned theme. I do not think it distracts from the fact that this is a masculine card. Inside I stamped a happy birthday sentiment.
I really like this mural/artistic type card and enjoyed creating it. What do you think?
The sketch this week on Mojo Monday really spoke to me and I had to answer. At first, my blade on my cutter did a bad job because it was dull. So I had to change blades and cut again. Then I adhered some of the layers crooked...had to tear them off and redo it with a new card base. Does this sound at all like YOUR day??!!
