Just for You cards in Gift box with Kaylee

Just for You cards in Gift box with Kaylee

 Welcome again!   Kaylee here today and this time using Couture Creation’s new ‘Homely Florals’ & ‘5″ x 7″ Background Stamp Set – Release 1’. These are 5″ x 7″ cards.  I made 3, dimensional cards and a box to create a Gift Set.  I kept ‘purple’ as the dominant colour of these cards and snuck in some glitter with the embossing powder on the background embossing.  I matted the purple cardstock and glued it directly onto the card front.   I used a mix of both the black and the white smooth card stock and heat embossed the background stamps to them.  I trimmed them to a size smaller than the purple mat, blended the dye inks around the edges, mounted them on cardboard then glued them to the card front.  I die-cut the ‘happy’ and ‘birthday’ from both cardstock and foam.  I glued them both together to give it height.  

There is a lovely lot of flowers in the ephemera pack so I chose a selection of different flowers and colours for the cards and added foam tape to the backs.   I added more foam tape under the focal flower to make it higher than everything else. Once all the pieces were ready, I just moved them around until I was happy with the placement.  It was just a matter of glueing/sticking all the pieces in place. I made the box using the diagram with measurements above.   I Scored, cut, burnished and glued it all together.  I kept the box plain but you could bring an element from each of the cards and create an arrangement on the front of the box.
