Pixie Cottage #54 - Flowers - Card and Matching Box


It's Wednesday so it means another challenge at The Pixie Cottage!
As always we have 2 parts to the challenge and you can choose either or both to play along with.
We have a fabulous sketch and our theme this week is "Flowers" and we know how much card makers love their flowers!!
I decided to do something a little different this week and make a Wedding Card with a Matching box and I hope you like it.
I'm hoping to start instructing again soon at a local store (after many years out of it) and this is a potential class so I hope it appeals! LOL

Project Recipe:
Image - Maisy & Matts Wedding by Di Carubia
Papers - K and Co
Medium - Copic Markers
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Scoring tool - Scor-Pal


This was the sketch we had to start us off with.







I love the way this turned out and the K and Co papers I think add a vintage feel to the project. I will definitely getting out my Scor-Pal more often (found the instructions for the slid box on their site) and making lots more things as it is certainly fun to play in 3D!
