Fabulous Florets

Thanks to my wonderful customers and terrific downline, I was able to promote to Manager with Stampin' Up at the end of February. With that promotion, I earned $150 in FREE product!! I was so excited because I was able to use it for my Summer Mini preorder. There was so much that I wanted and I knew I absolutely had to order the Fabulous Florets stamp set and the coordinating Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper.

I love this paper because it coordinates with some of my favorite colors - Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Tangerine Tango. I have been wanting to try some 3-D projects so I laid everything out and started thinking. And then, someone posted this project from The Rubber Cafe and I knew I had to make it:




This is the box without the cards inside:




I stamped some of the flowers on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then ran it through my Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder for that little piece of homemade DSP on the inside of the box. And, I just love the sentiment that comes in the set:




I made 5 identical cards (one in each of the 5 coordinating colors) to go inside. I stamped the stem image and cut it out, then attached it using dimensionals. I stamped the flowers and then sponged them with the same color. I cut them out and attached them with dimensionals, too. Then I stamped the stem on the back of each of the envelopes:




Here is a closer view of the card done in Pacific Point:




The complete list of supplies:
