Stampin Friends Blog Hop - Autumn/Outdoor/Halloween

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop for September! 

This month's theme is Autumn/Outdoor/Halloween. I chose to make a Floral card - so think Garden for Outdoor :o) 

If you are following along with the Hop, you would have arrived from Jo's Blog. 

Be sure to read through my post, comment below and then continue on to Jean's Blog. 

If you get lost along the way, you can find a full list of all the participants at the end of each of their Blog Posts.

Here are the projects I created for this month's Hop ...

I made a 6" Square Z-Fold card together with a little Mini Curvy Keepsakes Treat Box. 

You can find a Video below showing you how I created the Card.

The Mini Curvy Keepsakes box is so simple to make. There isn't any glueing. The handles at the top slot over each other and this keeps the box closed.

I used the beautiful All Things Fabulous stamp set for this project - my first inking of it. I absolutely love this set. It's a 2-step set but its photopolymer so is easy to line up.

The card came out so well. I was really pleased with the vibrant colours and how pretty it looks.

The paper is actually from one of our Christmas Collections - Heartwarming Hugs. I love Gingham so had to choose this design.

This isn't a quick card to create. But you could simplify it considerably by reducing the number of elements included in the corner sprays. I didn't mind the time though, I really enjoyed making it.

Here is a top view of the card. It isn't too bulky and would easily fit into an envelope for a 6" card, but I would make a box for it. You can find a video HERE of a suitable sized box.

Here is the card fully opened out.

And ... fully closed.

I didn't use a sentiment from the set but instead choose a simple 'Happy Birthday' from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Here is the Video ...

Stunning! Thanks for giving both sets of measurements. I have the treat box die and use it often—you are right—so easy to make. Your decorations for it (and the card) are just beautiful.
