Best Thoughts - Birthday Box

I was recently asked if I would create a card for one of my customers. I don't usually do commissions - I find them far too stressful to do :o) BUT, this was to be for a very special lady ... from her colleagues ... and I didn't want to say 'no'. 

We decided on blue, floral with butterflies. The card, I will show you tomorrow - but this is the box I created for it. 

I chose my absolute favourite floral stamp from the Best Thoughts stamp set and decided on the colours .... Marina Mist and Soft Sky.

I used both colours to stamp on the white mat for the lid of the box. I love how this turned out - the colours look really pretty together :o)

The only thing I wasn't happy about was the ribbon. I was positive I had some Marina Mist wide stripe ribbon left over from a while back - but I didn't check - and it was gone :o( I chose, instead, some of our lovely White Satin.

The Butterflies were stamped using the gorgeous Watercolour Wings stamp set. 

I did three layers for each of them. The bottom layer is plain Marina Mist card stock. The middle layer is the stamping and the top layer is Vellum. All the layers were cut out using the coordinating Bold Butterfly Framelits and Butterflies Thinlits dies.
