Sunny Garden Card and Gift Box

Another busy week has flashed by with so many things happening right now I dont seem to have much time for keeping my blog up to date, although I am still busy creating lots of different projects!!  This is a set I was commissioned to make, so I thought it was time for something bright and cheerful!!

I have used the Sunny Garden 12x12 papers for my card along with Daffodil Yellow and Peach Parfait card stock and ink, Daffodil Yellow satin ribbon and quite a few of the gorgeous pearls Stampin' Up! now sell.  I have used various stamp sets on this card.  

I thought a "Z" card would give averyone a chance of leaving a few special words for the lady this card is for and I have made a matching keepsake box to keep this special card in.

I stamped the butterflies with the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set and punched and cut them out, the flowers have been stamed with the level 1 hostess set Punch Pot Pourri, this is a set you can only get your hands on when you host a workshop with qualifing sales!! The sentiment is from the Sincere Salutations stamp set and layered with the oval punches.

This is the matching box I have made for the card to be kept in, again using the same supplies as before with more of the very pretty satin ribbon.  This ribbon is available in so many gorgeous colours, look out for my new ribbon share starting here soon!!

I'm sure my friend Jo will do a great job of creating a special album filled with photographs to give with this card.

I will show the photos of the projects we are making at my Valentines class today, of course they include chocolate!!

This is so sunny and cheery it's sure to brighten the person's day whatever the weather outside. That lush satin ribbon and the pearls give it a real luxury feel too.
