Share What You Love by sending a box of cards!

The theme for Kylie's International Highlights for June is FRIENDSHIP and I'm super excited to be taking part again.  The best bit about this Highlight is that you can vote for your favourite five projects.   The top ten winners will get the chance to be part of an international blog hop so I would really appreciate it if you would VOTE for my project. 


Today, I'm sharing a box filled with cards that I'm giving to a friend to celebrate her recent good news (the celebrate card above is the one I'm writing to her and the others are for her to send!).  I chose to use these particular papers because she admired them on a card that I had received, so I'm sure she will approve!  I think this project fits the Friendship bill perfectly.  I would love it if you would vote for my project HERE.

These wonderful Share What You Love designer series papers really are fabulous and I wanted to make them the star of the show.  The box itself is made from Blackberry Bliss card and decorated with beautiful paper and ribbons.  The little pocket on the front will accomodate a book of stamps and one of the exquisite roses from the Embellishment Kit adorns the flap.

A box of cards isn't complete without cards, so there is a selection of cards with envelopes to fill it up.  

Firstly, there are small square, Mint Macaron cards that feature the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I took inspiration for these from the Annual catalogue, p176.  I have highlighted the raised image using a white chalk marker, which is easy to do because it is so deeply embossed, giving a soft and subtle effect.  To finish the card I have added flowers, that are fussy cut from the papers, pearls, twine and a sentiment stamped on a stitched die cut shape.

This card echoes the box as it has a Blackberry Bliss base and features the same patterened paper.  To allow the paper to shine all that has been added is a simple sentiment and a strip of velvety ribbon.  Simple and gorgeous!

Although I have used different patterns, the layout for this card is the one that prompted the compliment from my friend.  The only thing that has been added is a few of the Artisan Pearls. 

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I do hope you have enjoyed this project.  I'd be really pleased if you visited the gallery and voted for my project!
