I would firstly like to thank you all for the brilliant comments yesterday from the box I mad for this card. I was blown away by the reaction to this one, as I am sure you all know when you like something it really is scary to see what other people think, will they agree with you or have you made a dud!
Todays post and card is to show what was inside yesterdays box and was the reason for making it.
Firstly here is the opening of the box with the card popping out! As you can more clearly see the box is a hinged fold witch protects, and hopefully showcases the card and the flower.
The card is made again using Spellbinders Gold Elements one Corner however this was cut in a darker shade (I really hope everyone's monitors show the colours properly as the two shades of lilac are really complimentary) This was matted onto white then the original box lilac and finally a white hand cut card blank (sizes to follow on the tutorial)
I made the flower using the lighter shade using the Sizzix Peony die which I cut 5 times to get enough petals. The die gives you the star shaped based, leaves and 5 different petals. I shaded the petals with purple distress ink before shaping them using a ball tool. Next I simply started layering them as per the instructions.
Finally i added a few pieces of distressed ribbon and a couple of Wendy's beautiful hatpins.
I loved making this and the finished result, here's hoping you do too!
