Its a box for my mother-law to give to her friend! Wasn't to sure how to decorate it as I didn't have a theme to go with apart from blues, turquoise! After a few days debating with my self I decided to stick to flowers as there safe bet for women! Also added images from my Sugar Nellie stamps, just suited this card well!
For this box I used a bright blue 12x12 card stock and PM "The Big One" paper to decorate. I used silver and white card to layer the sides. I've used flowers from PM trio packs with gems to decorate, plus punched daisy with gems on the other sides. I also used wee frames and flower embellishments to decorate the outside. The box is finished with the stamped images. i used Blossom by Leanne Ellis from Sugar Nellie and coloured with Whisper pens.
Think the colours all work really well together! my mother-in-law loved it, just hope her friend does too!!
Thanks for looking xx
I used a ivory/lemony card stock as it was all I had, then used PM papers to cover it. I also used off white sparkle paper to print out the wee messages, brown and gold papers to layer the sides. to finish the box off i used gems ribbon and wee flowers. The horseshoes I drew then cut out. The cake is made from 2 sheets of A4 card. Some ribbon and wee beads finish the cake off!
Hopefully its OK for the couple and the lemony its too noticeable!
Thanks for looking xx

This was just a quick box I made for one of the women I make cards for to sell in her B&B! she wanted a box for a women who was mad on cats! I choose a bright yellow card for a nice cheery effect! The backgroung paper is from the PM Big one. I added some lemon and yellow card scraps for the messages. The wee embellishments I got from a craft shop, I think??(can't even remember). Used pee-offs and stickers to finish the card off. The wee box has just got some wee flowers inside to finish the box off!
Not a cat lover at all, love me puppy, but this was a nice change! love the wee cat stickers,wonder if I can get dogs???Mmmm.........
