cards and gift box set

I did this gift box and cards set for a class in february.
Box bottom: Score 9 x 7 ¾ cardstock at 1 ½” on all 4 sides.

Box top: Score 8 1/8 x 6 7/8 cardstock at 1” on all 4 sides
I absolutely loved this paper and think it looks so nice as a box lid. No stamping at all!
The flowers were painted with shimmerz paint.

They look so pretty IRL.

I couldn't decide which side of the printed paper I liked best, so we did 2 of each card and just reversed the paper. The swirls and butterflies on this one were stamped with a versamark dazzle pad. It gives the watermark look with a touch of subtle shimmer. The final touch was the silver dew drops on the upper right hand corner.

For this one, the flowers in the background were stamped with the versamark dazzle pad and then the happy birthday sentiment was stamped with a cranberry adhirondak ink pad. I added 3 dew drops to the bottom right hand corner of one of the cards.

Each card had envelopes stamped to match. I love the color of this stream adhirondak pad. The flowers in the last 2 cards were also painted with shimmerz paints.
