I hope your week is treating you well.
Does anyone else have problems cutting into their brand new designer series paper? I do but today I did a little bit of fussy cutting. Just a bit though.
I had a play with the beautiful the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! The paper is stunning and has a gorgeous shimmer to it.
I also tried something different. I used a coloured card base. Normally I stick to using white but today I went with Gray Granite for the base and Blackberry Bliss for the embossed panel and the little box.
To make the card I started by embossing a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock with the beautiful Tin Tile Embossing Folder.
I then added a panel of the very lovely frosted floral designer series paper and from the same sheet, but the other side I cut out one of the beautiful flowers and some of the foliage. I then added this to the card with some dimensionals.
I then went on and created a little matching pizza style gift box which can hold 4 after 8 dinner mints. But I ate the mints, oops. Trust me they do fit.
I found a great tutorial over on Pootles Papercraft.
I used the Simply Scored to make the box. This is one of my must have items. I would be lost without it as I have made lots of boxes and it makes it super easy to measure and score.
