Petal Card box and matching card

I hope I'm not boring you with my Petal Card boxes but I love them to bits! Here's another box I made with a matching card:



The wonderful houndstooth paper is another design from the Festival of Prints designer stack which is exactly the right size for making these boxes! I loved the contrast of Cherry Cobbler with the bold print and softened the look with Crumb Cake seam binding. The tag is another one from the hostess set Mixed Medley - this really is a versatile set.


I made a coordinating card - a really simple design with strips of textured and patterned papers and a gorgeous layered die-cut button. I'll definitely be using this design again.


Here's a close-up showing the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes - it seems to have got smudged. I'd like to say it was from my tears of sorrow but I don't think I'm going to convince you on that one!

Here's what you'll need to make today's card
(For product info on the box, see previous post)
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes (sentiment)
Ink: Basic Black
Card stock: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler
Other: Festival of Prints designer paper stack, Sweet Buttons embosslits die, Square Lattice embossing folder, Big Shot, bakers twine, Simply Scored

Talking of tears, I came into the living room yesterday to find my daughter rolling about laughing. When I asked what was up she told me she'd just read this: 'Everyone was crying at the wedding  - even the cake was in tiers'.  Hmm, it seems that hysteria has set in.

Well it's Friday and it's a bit of a party weekend for me! I just hope I'm up to it... staying up until 10pm is a bit of a challenge for me these days - and will they be serving horlicks at a party do you think?! I hope you have a lovely weekend, whatever you're up to, and I shall see you very soon.
