Pretty boxes

I’m a little late posting these – they’re not available anymore. The first is a card box we made at convention or rather, started making at convention. I had to finish it at home, as I’m sure most people did. The second one is a recipe box I decorated for someone, using the same box (it was in the holiday mini). I used the  large sizzlit Paper Doily under the flower on the lid. It’s so pretty and adds a lot to anything. These large paper flower arrangements are fun to make and could even go on a card, if you wanted to mail it in a box!

For the workshop this month, I pulled out a old favorite and a new one from the SAB catalog (goes live in 3 days!). The first card is a Vintage Vogue CAS card, white on white card stock and several inks: Wisteria Wonder, Pretty in Pink, Pear Pizzaz, So Saffron and Concord Crush for the sentiment (Teeny Tiny Wishes). The next card is a stepped up version, using the new large sizzlit die from the mini, Paper Doily, in Pink Pirouette. I cut out two flowers and a dot and popped them up with a dimensional, well a quarter of a dimensional – can’t be wasteful! We didn’t make this one in the workshop as there were too many people to fuss with it, which is a good thing!

The second one features the stamp set Fresh Vintage, which is a set you can get when you order $50 of product, and Every Day Enchantment designer series paper, another freebie. The base is Crumb Cake, with Very Vanilla, Peach Parfait and Pool Party. Inks are Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. I had to keep both projects simple due to the size of the workshop, but as I’ve said before, I love simple and I like the way these turned out. Can’t go wrong with our beautiful vintage sets!
