Good morning friends~ Birgit here with you today and I've got a gift box that's just perfect for holding a set of coordinating cards.
The jumping point for this project is the clear acrylic box on which I created a little floral spray to jazz it up for gift giving.
I started by cutting a Sue Wilson Carribean Island Collection Background and mounting it to the clear box and wrapping some ribbon around it. The ribbon is tied in a bow so it can be easily untied and opened to insert the card set.
I cut the Sue Wilson Exquisite Poppy out several times and added color using distress ink and a black marker for the centers.
I shaped the flower pieces on a molding mat and assembled the flowers, adding some black prills to the centers.
I also cut out a few Frantic Stamper Ferns, Dee's Distinctively Dies Berry Sprigs and two of the small Elizabeth Craft Designs Dandelion Fluff. I added just a bit of extra grey color to the tips of the Dandelion Fluff using a Copic marker.
I played around with the design until I came up with the one I liked and adhered everything down using Glossy Accents.
I added some Mercury Glass Stickles to the berries to finish it off.
Four of these cards with envelopes fit perfectly inside along with a pretty pen. A nice little gift to give to someone.
I hope this gift idea has inspired you. Here's a list of dies I used that you can find right now at Dies R Us:
