Hi everyone! Hope you’ve had a great week – I just love my Fridays! Today is my post day on the Dare 2B Artzy blog and I’m stoked to share a DT inspiration project using the gorgeous Flowers for Mom stamp set and coordinating Joyful Flower dies, along with Artzy Doodles Bright Pumpkin paper!
I created an awesome boxed set of six thank you cards, three each of two different CAS designs. My inspiration for this project came from a YouTube tutorial HERE. Can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this! My version has a velcro closure under the flap, and I also decorated the back of the box. I used punches (extra large oval and extra large scallop) for the stamped sentiment. And I’m so sad that this grosgrain bow is my very last one. Sniff-sniff. And I don’t even remember where I got these but I sure have enjoyed them!
Orange is not usually my first choice of colors but I sure was diggin’ this, lol! My whole mindset was ‘bright colors’ and orange just fit the bill this time. I’m in love with the Artzy Doodles Variety Paper Pack! And yes, ALL of the Dare 2B Artzy papers have a patterned strip across the top which coordinates perfectly! This Bright Pumpkin layered on the white is just gorgeous against the slightly darker shade of orange cardstock used to create the box.
The card bases I used are 3-1/2″ x 5″ with slightly larger envelopes, and were perfect for this project considering the size of the die cut flowers. I prepared the panels first – cut the white pieces and stamped the thank you sentiment on each using a stamp positioner. I then cut slightly larger layering pieces from black cardstock and adhered them to the card bases. I stamped each flower three times in Totally Black ink on white cardstock, then colored them all, doing each set of flowers in the same color schemes. Once all the coloring was done, I cut them all with the coordinating dies and adhered them to the card bases. I finished them off with a few sparkly elements for some added interest.
And here’s a shot of the back of the box. Love, love, love how this project turned out! I’ve already made another boxed set of standard A2 sized cards with a magnet closure on the box. I’ve adjusted the measurements of the box for that project and will share soon, so stay tuned! :D
