Unstampabelles August Challenge No 14 Flowers

The challenge for Unstampabelles for the month of August is Flowers and is sponsored by Blue Edge Crafts.
Blue Edge Crafts or BEC as I often call them, are the biggest sellers of Spellbinder dies in Australia. Of course they also sell a whole heap of other delicious crafting goodies, so go check them out. They are reasonably priced for not only their goods but the postage as well. Well worth a visit.
This is what Blue Edeg Crafts have on offer for this months prize.

My DT card for this months challenge is a Shadow Box Card, which due to it's dimension has it's own presentation box, I got the original idea for this card from Donna @ little Claire's Designs blogspot, dated Friday 15th June 2012.

Items used to make this card are: 2 pieces of Stampin Up Very Vanilla card cut to 21cm x 14.5cm,.
Martha stewart border punch, Spellbinder circle dies a 3/4" circle punch, Gold Mirror card, Kaszazz Florish dies, I made 3 cream roses, 2 small pink paper tole roses, DCWV adhesive fabric paper and  Cream Stampin Up pearls. The font is  'Accord SF' size 16.

The box is made from Stampin Up very Vanilla and Pink Pirrouette. The top decoration was die cut with a Cheery Lyn die FRM 132 French Lattice sml Frame. Some of the pieces cut out, I edged with  Stampin Up Regal Rose and used a dot of wet glue to adhere into position and finished with a pearl in the centre. The box also has a Satin edged organdie ribbon wrapped around the box lid sides and tied in a bow at the front. (I used my Crafters Companion to score the box lid and base to make sure they fit together well.

And here they are. The sides of the card push inwards to place in the box, and as soon as you remove it, they spring back out again.

I can give you exact measurements and more detailed information should you wish to make one yourself.

I'm really please with the finished effect, very pretty, girly and PINK!!! my favourite colour.
