pink box

Floral Phrases is a stamp set newly available in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue. It is not my usual style at all, but when I saw it in the catalogue, it seemed to spark ideas.

I wanted to make a box to put scented tea lights in (although I have not had time to make them) and it was important to have a “fretwork” lid which would allow the fragrance to flood out. I thought that the Detailed Floral Thinlets that go with this stamp set would work perfectly, and so they have.

A slight doofas moment with the prototype meant that I made the top the bottom, and the bottom the top, but at least I could see how it would look if I managed to get it right! There may be a doofas on the video too, but I could not possibly comment.

The prototype is made in the new Dapper Denim cardstock, which I think is a lovely shade of blue, and the “real” box is made in Sweet Sugarplum which is also new and a gorgeous, pretty pink.

Card size: Two pieces at 21 x 16cm

Score 40 mm on all four sides of one piece of card and 41mm on all four sides of the second.
