In my local area many of the primary school children and making their first Confirmation. I was requested to make card by a few different people. For occasions like this I concentrate on one design unless I get an order going to the same person. To make both designs I used files which I downloaded from Silhouette Studio
Recently I went to Ikea, I love the place! When I go it is a full day event and normal leaves my pockets empty! It is a brilliant shop for lots of craft items some of my favourites include box frames, ribbon and little glass jars (brilliant for decorating and filling with sweets!). On this visit I seen these little tin vases, they are everywhere on Pinterest. I picked up two of the smallest sizes (£2 each). I had no idea what I was going to make with them but I knew I needed them. After a few days I finally decided to make flowers for them. I made button flowers, the same as from our craft night. I added larger paper flowers and shredded green paper to make grass. To add the finishing touch I added ribbon, I posted them to my Facebook page and they sold almost instantly!
So far this summer box cards have been in massive demand!Everyone seems to love them! This box card was made for a ladies 60th birthday. I wanted this card to be bright and colourful, my two favourite colours a pink and blue they work perfect together. I stamped the flowers and coloured them in, something I don’t often do! The stamp set I used is from Stampin Up and is called Petite Petals (133152) and this set comes with a matching punch (133322). I also used Stampin Up Rhinestones (119246) to add a little sparkle!
