Be sure to stop by everyone's blogs and check out their amazing projects. Leave a comment and share what you loved! I hope you hopped over from Tiziana Milano's blog; she's always creating something awesome! And after you view my hop, check the list below and stop by anyone's hops that you may have missed.
When planning out my projects I usually decide what I want to make fun fold card, box or bag. This time, I stepped out of my comfort zone and decide to try 2 different things this time. I typically do not create a 1 layer card. I always have different paper layers and designer paper. This was a bit of a challeng and with different attempts, my card changed many times along the way.
So first I grabbed the Cottage Wreath Bundle from the Stampin Up Mini Catalog. Grabbed some Basic White for the cardbase a chose a color scheme. I wanted a fall feel so I chose Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze. I started stamping with my lightest color first and then layered darker next. You can see from the pictures below the process I used to create the wreath! I cut out a piece of glimmer paper using the coordinate dies to add a textured layer to the wreath. I colored the acorns and cut them out and used the bow die in Crumb Cake. And finally, the word Grateful stamped! It was a super easy card to make.
Moving onto the project. I normally create my card and 3D item to match or coordinate. I would use the same stamp sets, colors paper etc and usually make them to be given together. This time I made them independent of each other.
And if a little bit is there, your just going to cut that section off. Add glue to each side of the box, and attach the pillow box piece. I cut the label and tag out from the Pretty Pillowbox dies and I stamped the Thank you from the Cup of Tea in Crushed Curry. Added some black twine and linen thread to create double bow. I added a box of mini glue dots to give as a gift. SO cute SO easy!!
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the projects I have created for you today.
