Easter blessings and Boxes

Well have finally managed to get some items photographed. I took my inspiration for the colour scheme from the beautiful Watercolour Wonder DSP. I love Island Indigo, Gumball Green and the Smoky slate together.
The card is a Z-fold card and I have embossed the Easter Blessings using the Pewter Embossing Powder. The Gumball Green frame is some leftover Christmas Cordinations CS so I was able to sand it after embossing for some more texture. Everything Eleanor provided the swirls and flowers and there is a touch of DSP in there for some more depth.

The easter egg box is one we'll be making at this weekend's class and is a piece of Whisper White CS cut to 8.5" x the A4 width, scored at 2,4,6,8" and 2' along the long edge. The circle window is punched using a 11/4" punch and the hole is covered by a small piece of acetate. The cardstock is randomly stamped using Everything Eleanor flowers and the smoky slate swirl before folding, and the closure is a piece of island indigo 2' x 3' scored at 1' and punched, embossed and attached with ribbon.
 I have made quite a few of these boxes in different heights and colours. They hold a nice little stash of chocolates !


And lastly, another Easter Card in an alternative Colour Selection but still using the same elements. The Watercolour Paper provided the inspiration for this one.  I am loving the new little flowers punch and stamp set too. thanks for looking Liz
