Flower Shop and Petite Petals in a Box

Two posts in one day - a first for me. I had a request to make a card in a box for twin girls. I tried a number of different sized boxes before I decided on one to use.

This card is made from the "leftover" box and some "leftover" punched flowers I had on my stamp desk.

The box is made using Crumb Cake cardstock. Each of the upper panels of the box has been layered with Pink Pirouette Designer Series Paper.

The flowers are from the Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamp sets. They have been stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Pink Pirouette, Night of Navy and Crumb Cake inks and punched out using the Pansy and Petite Petals punches.

The Happy Birthday, from a retired Hostess set called Happiest Birthday Wishes, has been stamped on a strip of Whisper White cardstock using the retired Baked Brown Sugar ink. The ends have been punched using the new Banner Triple punch.

The card has been finished using three Pearl Basic jewels which I have coloured using the darkest colour from the Night of Navy Stampin' Blendabilities, which are now retired.

What do you think of my card made from "leftovers"?

  1. Hi Patricia, your card in a box looks great, do you have the measurements for it

    1. Sheila, thank you for your comment. I am not home at the moment. I will post the dimensions when I get home and check which size I used.
