Happy Hello!

Let me first by saying that there is only 17 days left of Salebration! And secondly, I apologize for the "generic" photo of the box, the candy has been "double dutied" for another project. LOL! Anyway, on to today's post.  This is the Happy Hello Simply Sent Card Kit that is FREE(during SAB, with a $50 purchase). In the kit, you recieve 8 printed, diecut cards, 8 printed envelopes, 24 cardstock flowers, 8 Basic Gray sticker strips, 8 pieces precut Basic Gray Baker's Twine(exclusive to this kit!) and 8 adhesive backed rhinestones.
So, it was as simple as literally putting the card together with the product it came with and the box, was just as EASY! I made 3, (3!) score marks , made two tiny cuts, and assembled the box and added the precut details to it and viola! it was done in less than 3 minutes! (The candy was gone faster than that I might add! hehehehe) Anyway, who knew? Thank you to the demonstrator that I saw this idea for the box from, my CRW(can't remember where) kicked in once again but I know she is fantasically smart!

Spring Sampler Stepped Up!

I was putting my February card stuff away and had an extra of this card, so I decided to show a "stepped up" version of the one we made in class(the top one) and then added the Bottle Caps to the second one to show the versatility of them.  I wish I could use them for our monthly card class and as affordable as they are, for 60 people this month, was just not possible.  I used the Spring Sampler stamp set (Spring Mini) and the Tea For Two DSP(also from the Spring Mini), the Wallpaper Embossing Folder onto Lucky Limeade cardstock and then cut a Top Note from Whisper White cardstock and covered the other end with the DSP.  I stamped Happy Easter from the stamp set Delightful Dozen in Island Indigo Ink. I wrapped a piece of Ruffled Island Indigo ribbon around the center of the Top Note and DSP to hide the seam. Love the Itty Bitty Punches (as you probably already figured out) and punched out 3 little flowers from Island Indigo cardstock and added Basic Pearls. For the bunny, basket and egg, I used Pretty In Pink, So So Saffron and Lucky Limeade ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the 1" circle punch and glued them into the smooshed bottle caps and then onto the card using Dimensionals.
