Welcome to the Creative Circle March Blog Hop. This month we are giving you a preview of The Garden – one of Liz’ most recent projects. If you’ve just come from her blog, you got a chance to see her lovely interpretation of the design. Because it’s so easy to resize cut files on my Silhouette, I decided to miniaturize it a bit and make a card-in-a-box! My garden was primarily constructed with cardstock with a few bits of Botanical Gardens DSP used on the outside of the box (visible with flaps up) and the trellis. All the flowers were cut using the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and cardstock (Basic Black, Hello Honey, Whisper White, Old Olive, and Mossy Meadow) the Happy Birthday greeting on the front was done with Teeny Tiny Wishes and the Word Window punch.
I made a couple of companion cards to go with the set – take a look:
Again, I relied heavily on cardstock for my basic color scheme and accented with die cut flowers and bits of Botanical Gardens DSP. The greetings used were from Birthday Blooms and Botanicals For You – a Sale-a-Bration set designed to coordinate with the Botanicals suite!
