Welcome back! I'm so glad you could join the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team for our next Blog Hop of May! Today we are featuring projects with new supplies for the month of May. You might have just arrived from Jeanna’s blog. If not, make sure you go all around the hop and get to her terrific project!
Today, I decided to use one of the kraft boxes that we were sent this month to hold a set of small cards that could be tucked into a gift of some sort. I used Calypso Coral and Summer Starfruit Designer Series Papers and Calypso Coral Baker's Twine to decorate the box with. Keeping it simple today! So, what is tucked inside you ask?
This little set of 3"x3" cards! The cards are made from Old Olive and Soft Suede Cardstock, and I used the 2 1/2" Circle Punch to make the opening in each card front. I backed the openings with Very Vanilla cardstock. I colored each of the flowers from the Best of Flowers set with markers in Old Olive, Soft Suede, Calypso Coral and Summer Starfruit, stamped them onto the Very Vanilla and used a blender pen to soften up the petals. The friend greeting is from the Amazing Family Clear Mount Stamp Set, and is stamped in Calypso Coral onto Vellum Cardstock. I just cut the stamped strip, and folded the edges around the card front to adhere it. I used some Calypso Coral Baker's Twine again to finish up the cards.
Here is a close-up of my favorite card in the bunch. If I would have thought about it before they were assembled, I would have added some paper piercing around the circle on the card front as an extra touch. But if you need a quick gift, I think this whole project came together in about 1 1/2 hours. Not too bad!
Well, that is all for today. Also, you’ll want to join us again next Wednesday as we feature another hop with all new projects! And, don’t forget to click to get to Sarah’s Blog for the next stop on the hop. You won’t want to miss her amazing project. Thanks for stopping by!
