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.
