Today, we are going to take a closer look at the outside of the stationery box I showed you yesterday, along with the greeting cards I created to go along with the box.
To create the flower, I used the Spiral Flowers Originals Die and the wonderful new Cherry on Top Cotton Paper Assortment from the upcoming 2015-2016 Annual Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog. You can order this fantastic cotton paper when the new catalog goes live on June 2nd. It is so thin and gorgeous! To adhere the Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay pieces inside the Watermelon Wonder flower, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I also used the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the flower to the box.
The Greeting Cards:
I just love, love, love these colors and the happy emotion they elicit. Just look at how lovely Crushed Curry, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Pool Party, and Bermuda Bay are when they are combined to make these celebration and thank you cards. I just want to eat them! The cards look like delicious pieces of cake to me. 🙂
These cards were created using the new Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack along with the brand new Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape. (Both will be available in the new catalog.)
I had a blast using the Balloon Framelits and Circle Card Thinlits Dies to create the shapes and the Celebrate Today photopolymer stamp set to stamp the images. (All three of these items are available for order now.)
This stationery box with coordinating greeting cards is so fun to make and makes such a great gift for a friend, neighbor, teacher, mom, and even dad. Be sure to view the tutorial HERE.
