Dreamer ...

Hi Everybody,

The sentiment on this beautiful card is from the stamp range by  Sheena Douglass and there are many quite large sentiments on the sheet ... and some gorgeous butterflies too

This was a card I was asked to make and it comes complete with matching box.

The die I have used is the Tied Together and it is from JGD Crafts  It matches the Tied Together embossing folder also from the same craft shop

It is such a lovely design and will enhance any of your cards and I use it to create the aperture in the box lid. Always a really good way to showcase the card inside.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and sparkled up with fine glitter from Glitter Magic

The buckle for the bow is also from WOC and I have added it to satin ribbon from Mei Flower

The diamant√© around the edge of the card and the ow is from Want2Scrap  and adds a really elegant touch for such a special card and the addition of organza butterflies to both card and box makes it even better.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  9. Good morning Christina,
    What a beautiful card and box that you have made for our delight today. What a great idea for the box base, turning the colour of the card to the inside instead of the outside to show off the card to it's fullest. Although i like to make a box to match some of my cards i have always had the colour to the outside, so thank you for that wee tip i will vary now to see what it is best as.
    Love and crafty hugs

  14. Good afternoon Christina
    Such a beautiful and really stunning card and box you have made today, I really like your idea of using the colour on the inside of the box to help enhance the card even further. I have watched your box making video several times but really must get my act together and make some boxes, promise I will!
    Thank you for even more inspiration.
