Today I want to share a gift box and a card I made as a present for a wonderful lady, who happens to be my SU upline : the lovely Tracy May. She is the sweetest person ever. She sent me some chocolate at the beginning of the year, and I wanted to thank her for everything she did for me.
I thought it was the perfect time to use the World of Thanks stamp, as I never inked it before. I love the design of this stamp, especially how it can appear as a simple background or be the star of the show, depending on how you work with it.
So here is what I made for Tracy:
So World of Thanks is stamped in versamark and heat embossed on a Whisper White cardstock, and then I sponged some Tangerine Tango very lightly on the cardstock. It was then mated on a Tangerine Tango cardstock on a Kraft base.
The butterfly is die cut with the Butterflies Thinlits on a Tangerine Tango cardstock. I added 3 red pearls to add interest.
The little hexagon box is made with the same Tangerine Tango and kraft cardstock. I used the hexagon framelits to create the top panel. You can find the tutorial on how to do it here at Craftyhallett (althought I slightly changed the dimensions). I loved the little boxes she made and they caught my eye on Pinterest : go have a look! 🙂
The flower is made with 3 pansies punched and glued together with a Petite Petal on top. The center of the flower and the leaves are made with other punches, not SU though. Again I added a pearl at the center of the flower. If you’ve visited my blog a few weeks ago, maybe you remember seing this flower before : it’s almost the same I put on my easel card.
The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set and it fits perfectly on the smallest banner die cut.
Of course if you were wondering, I put some chocolates in the gift box 😉
I hope you like it 🙂
thanks for visiting!
