Card in a box

Well, now that Christmas is over it is time to create something different - hooray it's back to flowers, and since there are several birthdays in January it's a nice fresh feel to making something new.
I have been inspired by another SU demonstrator - Tanya Bell (another Queenslander!) with her Card in a Box. She has a fabulous video which she shared on Stampin Connection . She referenced Monica Gale who has made a larger version.( you may need to search for Card in a box on her site) I. hope you can view the links. I have tried my hand at a few samples, and will have a few more photos in the next few days of some other colour/theme attempts.
The first uses "Simply Sketched" and "Natures Walk" with some of my favourite colours of Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green. I have stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured the images with a blender pen then cut them out. I have also used another very old set "Organic Grace" - with Perfect Plum for the flower heads. The DSP is form the birthday set in the current catalogue. All special birthday cards should have a little bit of sparkle! so I have used traces of the Dazzling Details glitter glue once it was all assembled.
I do love that this just fits into a regular envelope. This was fiddly and did take some time with all the detailed cutting, but after mass producing so many christmas cards I really enjoyed taking some time to just create - and it's for a special person so I enjoyed taking some time thinking about her. Thanks for looking, Liz
