If you have been looking at blogs recently you can't have failed to see the "Card in a Box" design - so I decided to jump onto the bandwagon! I followed the tutorial on the super talented Monica Gale's blog and decided to showcase the GORGEOUS Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper that you can chose for FREE during Sale-a-bration with a spend of over £45 (excluding P&P) This paper is simply stunning in real life - the pictures in the brochure really don't do it justice!
I used the colours in the paper as my pallette - Sahara Sand, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Pistachio Pudding - so fresh and spring-like.
The box based was assembled using Sahara Sand card and decorated with the DSP matted onto Pool Party (I like layers!). I stamped lots of flowers using the Flower Shop Stamp Set and punched them out with the Pansy Punch - I just love the way Stampin' Up! makes it easy for us to craft!
The birthday greeting is from the Occasions Alphabet Stamp Set - there really is a saying for every occasion in this set. It was cut out using a die from the Circle Card Thinlits and matted on a couple of circles. The Pool Party Twine is from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack - another Sale-a-bration freebie. The card was finished with a couple of Candy Dots.
This picture shows why these cards are so great - they fold flat to post!
Here are the main Stampin' Up! supplies used to make today's card.
