Exciting Announcement!

I'm so excited to finally be able to let you in on the wonderful little surprise I've been holding onto!  I've been asked to join the CardMaker Blog Team!  Talk about an awesome honor!  CardMaker Magazine has been so good to me as a designer by publishing numerous cards of mine over the years in their books and magazines, and I feel incredibly blessed to be able to be part of this team!  There's an awesome line-up of designers that I can't wait to work with!

To celebrate I thought I'd post a project I had in the vault that's a little taste of summer :)


It's a cute sunflowers set, card and box.  The card is stamped with Flourishes Sunflower Set that I love so much in Toffee Crunch Memento Ink to give it that no line look, onto Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock, and then used a two Silhouette Cut files to create the 3D Sunflower box.  


I've stamped the background of the card with sentiments from the set in Memento Cantaloupe ink onto Flourishes Sunflower Color Made Easy Cardstock collection.  I've added some pretty lattice type embossing and Classic Petal Edgeabilities, as well as a little Flourishes tag for the sentiment and some pretty faceted gems.  



I used two cut files for the box, a 3.5 inch circle box file and the sunflower die cut file from the Silhouette store, enlarging the sunflower till it was big enough for my box....so cute isn't it?  And the perfect summery themed gift!  Which is nice to have a taste of on a cold wintery day :)
