Raffle Basket Set

Hope you've enjoyed the Sneak Peeks this week from Flourishes.  The store is now open - so you can purchase these wonderful sets.  To remind you too, if you purchase the bundle you are able to download the calendar template free as well.  It's fantastic, and I look forward to making something with it soon. 

But before I could make a calendar, my daughter needed something for her Band Christmas Concert Raffle at school, so I put together a really quick set of 4 cards to be included in one of the baskets. I was totally inspired by my friend Julie this week and her set of cards.

I used the first four months of the A Year of Flowers Calendar Set I and colored the months with copics.  Then I used a simple layout for all four cards and just swapped out papers and ribbons.  It really makes the process go so much quicker. 

Here is a picture of the box closed.  I used a packaging box from PaperTrey that a set of stamps came in and just repurposed it.  I added Memory Box Dewfrost Designer paper on Soft Sky with scallops cut out, and the gorgeous Satin Ribbon.  It really dresses up a simple clear box. 

Here are the cards inside: 

MB Dewfrost papers, Kaiser pearls, Square and Scalloped Square Nesties, and organza sheer ribbon from the Flourishes Store.

The Primrose uses MB Spiceberry paper from Flourishes. 

The Pansies use Basic Grey Euphoria DSP, Kaiser pearls and Satin ribbon from the Flourishes store

This paper for the Daffodils is K & Co I believe. 

A pretty and simple set.  It really didn't take me long to do.  Enjoy your shopping at Flourishes!

Christine, I've been scrolling up and down for the longest time, admiring these beauties. Gosh, what a pretty set! I love all the different colors and papers. I hardly noticed that the layout was the same on all. They each look so different. Love them!

What a wonderful set of cards! Love the burgundy one. Fabulous colouring of all of them and with so many different DPs one would never know you used the same layout! Sure they will be thoroughly enjoyed by whoever gets them.

Simply stunning! Even the repurposed box is amazing. I have been procrastinating on buying the floral set but maybe this will convince me. The pepaers you used look wonderful with the images as well. Great job!!!
