Another Card in a Box

Today I have a special card to share with you - its a special one for my Sister-in-law…she has the best garden EVER so I thought I'd have a go at another of these Card in a Boxes with a flower and butterfly theme - but with NEW Products!!
You can see an excellent video tutorial by Tanya Bell with all the measurements here. But here is my version :-)

The Designer Series Paper is where i started and got my colour ideas from - its the gorgeous Watercolor Wonder pack. And the colours are great for a spring or summer theme! the base of the card is therefore Gumball Green, and the DSP is matted onto So Safron.

The flowers are all from the Simple Stems set and seeing as I as yet don't have Island Indigo ink, I stamped the spikier flowers with Midnight Muse - stamped off onto scrap paper once before stamping onto card stock.

The birthday banner is from the Hostess set, Banner Greetings and I cut the end leaving a little extra card to wrap around the toothpick  flag pole. The Love You is from the cute Just Sayin stamp set. And the heart is actually from a Saleabration set, Banner Bast. 

Do you recognise the butterflies? They are not so new!!And are from the Papillon Potpourri set - and finished with some rhinestones :-)

Designer Series Paper: Watercolor Wonder
Ink:Tangerine Tango, So Safron, Midnight Muse, Real Red
Stamps: Simple Stems, Papillon Potpourri, Just Sayin, Banner Blast, Banner Greetings

Happy stamping until next time,
