Hello, my crafty friends! I hope you’re having a good Hump Day! I’m excited to share my Ephemoire inspiration project with you this morning. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to head over to the Ephemoire Etsy Shop to check out all the amazing digital printables… there are collage sheets, digital papers, journal kits, clip art and mixed media printables, and the print quality is awesome!
I was provided Painted Poppies #1, Painted Poppies #2 and Painted Poppies #3 letter size digital papers to create with this month, and created a pretty boxed set of 12 thank you cards. A friend and former co-worker reached out to request a dozen thank you cards, and I had already had my eye on these papers so I knew exactly what I wanted to do. ;)
Before I get into the details of my project, I have to share my latest light box visitor… Tigger! I was busy taking photos of the cards and before I knew it, Tigger jumped in and tried to get into that little card box. Oh yes he did, lol! Luckily I was able to get the box (and cards) out of the light box before he crushed it, and snapped a photo of him with his tongue out! Bahahaha, that’s our boy! ** I’ve updated this post with another pic of Tigger without his tongue out so you can see how handsome he really is! ;) **
Okay, let me get back on track here… I created a flip-top box that coordinates with the set of cards. I fussy cut a couple pieces of a poppy and made it dimensional with foam pads and added it to the left side of the lid over top of the gold mirror cardstock strip. All the card fronts are layered on brown bag kraft, so I layered the box lid panels on brown bag as well and I covered the inside of the box with the brown bag.
And here are shots of all the cards in pairs. These papers are literally breath-taking and I used almost all of them. A while back I found the perfect 60# Hammermill copy paper to print on which really ramps up these digital prints. ;)
And one more look at the closed box. The strip of gold mirror cardstock makes them look so elegant and I know my friend is going to love them as much as I do!
