And now for my project...
A surprise card box, inspired by a you tube tutorial found here done by France Martin aka "Frenchie".
I chose to accent this project with shapes cut on the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, as well as the Card Word Puzzle stamp set.
This is what the card looks like put together.
The circle cut underneath my stamped and waterbrushed flower is 2nd generation stamped with the same flower in grey wool ink.
The stamped flower was stamped in archival black ink and then colored in with my waterbrush and smoothie ink and then popped up on the circle with 3D Foam Tape.
I chose to also add opaques to the center of the flower.
With the belly band removed
The inside of the box (pictured with a Studio J gift card inside)
The inside sentiment is also background stamped with the same flower using 2nd generation stamping in grey wool ink again.
The butterfly and sentiment are both stamped in archival black ink.
The whole sentiment is on a spring, in order to spring up when you open the card.
