Sweet Stampin' - Flowers

Hi and Happy New Year
Good morning everyone, it's my turn to share my Sweet StampinDesign Team card with you. Our cheerful theme this week is 'Flowers' and remember you MUST include a stamped element on your card/project.

For my project this week I am sharing a box card I made for my daughter using a variety of digi images from Mo Manning and Polkadoodles - I coloured everything with Copics and fussy cut all the images out.

Here's What I did
After creating my box and adding my papers to it. I die cut flowers attaching some to acetate strips.  I then printed off my digi stamps - the Mad Hatter, Alice, Dormouse, cups, etc. I coloured them all in with Copics and also attached these to acetate strips. Everything including the die cut flowers were then placed inside the box.  The quotes were printed and die cut and coloured with pan pastels.  You'll also spot the odd playing card (including the Queen of Hearts) - these are actually mini cards from a Xmas cracker.

Click the link here to the Box Card Template I've created.  It's a bit lengthy sorry, but it does have illustrations.  You can open, download and/or save it. FYI, if you want to make the box height and/flaps slightly larger or smaller just increase or decease the measurements I've given you. Any questions just email me...have fun!
