Petal Card Die Box II

Here is another box made with the Petal Card Die for the Big Shot diecutting machine.  These boxes are so fun and easy to make... you really need this die!  I'm really having fun exploring the ways to use it!

The box was constructed from four petal card  diecuts of Orchid Opulence cardstock.  {see instructions here}  Each of the four sides was covered with either Certainly Celery or So Saffron cardstock then a layer of the delicate polka dot pattern from the Shades of Spring Designer Series Paper.

I made paper flowers from coordinating colors of So Saffron, Pretty in Pink and another piece of the dotted DSP used for the background.  The new Extra Large Fancy Flower punch was used for the So Saffron flower.  Before punching, I stamped the cardstock with the new Fine Flourish stamp from the Occasions Mini in So Saffron ink.  I snipped the petals further in toward the center and curled each petal with my bone folder.  The BoHo Blossoms Punch was used to punch the second flower out of the same polka dot DSP; I did the same clipping of petals and bending the paper petals with my fingers.  The pink center was punched with the same BoHo Blossoms punch, curled and then all three flowers put together with a So Saffron Brad from the Rich Regals Brads assortment.  The flower was then attached to both the front and back of the box with Mini Glue Dots (gotta love those things!)

Certainly Celery cardstock, prestamped with the Fine Flourish stamp in celery, were punched out with the Five Petal Flower Punch, cut into individual petals, creased down the center and used for the leaves.  They were adhered with Mini Glue Dots.

Luxurious Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon was used for the bow and tie around the box for the finishing touch. (pic. 4, side view)

Another lovely project but it's so not fair. We are getting the Big Shot in Australia in our April Autumn/Winter mini catalogue but we aren't getting the Petal Card die. I have to wait till September and hope that it comes in our next main IB&C.

I'll just have to save up these wonderful project ideas till then.
