Flowers in a Box

Each month, the Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Design Team participates in a special challenge. This month’s theme is flowers and I decided to make a box filled with them.

036I started with a simple box card made from green cardstock. I covered the panels and exterior of the box with new paper from Lawn Fawn.

Then, I began cutting out flowers of all shapes and sizes with dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I began with Flower Set 1, which I cut with Shimmer Sheetz and Velvet Adhesive Sheets and then layered together.

039Next, I cut out the Flourish with Flowers die out of a Velvet Adhesive Sheet. Since it did not fit on the box panel, I needed to remove the adhesive off of the back side.

040This is easily accomplished with baby powder. Use your finger or a small paint brush to coat the backside in baby powder. The adhesive will no longer be sticky (and it smells good, too!)

223Then, I began filling in the space with leaves cut from the Curvy Leaves die. I used two different shades of green Shimmer Sheetz to add contrast.

222And flowers cut with the Bunch of Flowers die.

221HINT: Use the metal adaptor plate and run it through the Big Shot twice for the best results.

For a final touch, I added the words With Love from the Assorted Words peel-off sheet.

  2. Such a cool card! I just bought a couple box cards for the Silhouette but they are a bit scary to me yet. Love your card!
