Butterflies and Boxes

This is a recent-ish make and take I designed for my stampers ten members.

The background is created by using a piece of pink card, and then embossing it with a folder that has been brayered with the matching ink before putting the card in and running through the Big Shot. The same for the inside of the card as well.

We also made a matching box using the Mini Milk Carton die. You need two die cuts for each box, and you cut one section off each die cut (not the end with the flap on as you need that to construct the boxes). I am planning to do a quick tutorial on how to do the box, so watch this space!

If you pull the top together with the points up it looks like this:

A little more tricky, and less space in the box, but if you make the points go down it looks like this:

Card/Paper: Perfect Plum, Pink Pirhouette, Very Vanilla, Springtime Vintage DSP (retiring this month)

Ink: Pink Pirhouette, Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum

Stamps: Fast Flowers, Fresh Cuts (both retiring this month) Sincere Salutations

Other: Elegant Bouquet embossing folder, Basic Pearls, Pretty in Pink 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon, Silver Cord (no longer available)

Card Size: 15cm x 10.5cm (approx 4" x 6")
