Box of flowers

 Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built and this week it is a fun one: Fun Fold.

 And here is the card I created for your inspiration:

I decided to create a box card filled with flowers for my best friend's birthday.  The actual construction of a box card is really easy and then filling it with whatever you choose is the fun part!  I used this tutorial, but I'm sure there are many out there on the internet.  My thought was to do a card in black and white with pops of red.  But as I was looking for papers, I found these really fun colorful papers that also had those colors in them.  It created a card that is more "fun".  I stamped a LOT of flowers, leaves and stems, colored them and fussy cut them out, then I created a bouquet and adhered them all in place.
I heat embossed the sentiment on black card stock, cut fishtail ends and adhered it to the front flap along with some extra flowers that didn't fit into the bouquet.  On the back, I stamped a birthday sentiment; this is also the place I will write a little note.
There are a lot of flowers and they stick up all over the place, but the card does fold flat(ish) and will fit in an envelope just a little bit bigger than an A2 sized envelope.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the House blog to see the rest of the DT's creations and then get inky and play along with us.  And if you need any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your ENTIRE order coupon code over in my left sidebar.

This is such a beautiful surprise when opened!! A friend made one of these for me several years ago and it's still displayed on an end table in my living room! Those little banners look so sweet with all those festive, vibrant flowers! NJ

I have a die that does this box and haven't used it for a while. I like how tall yours is - awesome job!
