I created a gift set using the new Quatrefoil Pattern Die (Can you say LOVE???!!!), Romantic Floral Designs and the gorgeous Hyacinth set, made to perfectly fit the Spellbinders Label 26, which also is available at ODBD. For my card I die cut the Quatrefoil Pattern from white card stock, and matted that on pretty green designer paper from K&Co. I adhered that to a blue base. I stamped the lacey Romantic Floral Design image with Memento London Fog ink on the same green dp, and cut it out with Spellbinders Labels 26. I then stamped my focal image from the Hyacinth set with black on white. I colored with Copics.
For my gift box, I created a pizza style box (sized to hold A2 cards), but I decided to put pretty pastel colored Jordon Almonds inside as a gift. I cut another white Quatrefoil pattern, and using a craft knife, I cut out a window in the top of my box to fit the outer border of the die cut. I adhered that to the inside of my box, and added some clear acetate to create my lid. The designer paper is double sided, with a soft blue inside, so I used that to mat my card above. I had fits getting consistent colors on my photos, but you get the idea....
Here are the ODBD products I used:
I also want to share a tag I posted as a sneak peek, but in case you missed it, I created this tag with the Finch Collage Stamp. You can find the details to that tag HERE.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have enjoyed my project.... and now I will send you on to the next stop on the hop... talented and sweet Chris!
