I am always more apt to use my sets that have coordinating diecuts as well. This is one of those sets. I just like that I can layer the colored image on a piece of pattern paper for more "punch". This set reminds me of a card I made a few years ago that is one of my favorites. You can see it here. I obviously didn't go into as much detail on today's card, but I wanted to give it a similar feel with the punched flowers and circle focal image. I colored the image using copic markers and then used my color spritzing tool to add some brown splatters to the pitcher. I like doing that because it makes it look more like real pottery. I also added some glossy accents to it to make it look more realistic!
The bottom piece is diecut from pattern paper and then stitched down using my sewing machine. I will pop this little card in the mail and hopefully it will bring cheer to the recipient and she will know she is cared about. Thanks for fluttering by!

I really wanted the saying to be the main attraction, but I really love this paper. too, so I gave them both equal time to shine, I think. You will be seeing more of this paper soon, too. I have a fun project to share with you.You will get to see a lot of the different designs.
I also picked up some gray lace which I love and added a yellow rolled felt rose to the bow. My daughter was so pleased that the staple was blue, too. Um....total accident. I thought it was black. Good thing it matched.
Here is a peek at the inside. I stamped the sentiment onto some pattern paper and then attached it with some washi tape.

I didn't take a picture with the lid off, but all of the focal images are attached to the lid. The ribbon is threaded through the inside so that the lid can be easily taken off without having to undo anything. The bottom sentiment is attached to the base of the box.
I made a tiny 3 by 3 card that I could slip inside the box with the gift. Sometimes I like having just one complete package to give rather than loose odds and ends. Not much more to say! Thanks for fluttering by and enjoy your summer!
P.S. I am needing to make a new banner for my mantel so I will post that when I get it done! I found the perfect paper...I hope!
