Fabulous Florets - Gift Box Set

I have been making some gift box sets with four co-ordinating cards for "The Big Morning Tea" that the Wanneroo Country Woman's Association Branch are holding on the 12 June, 2012 at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre.  The proceeds of the day go to Breast Cancer Care WA, a WA Charity that provides personalised emotional, practical and financial support and care to people affected by breast cancer.

I have used the colours of Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Always Artichoke with some Soft Suede ink as an addition for contrast.  This is the first set that I made, using the Fabulous Florets stamp set from Stampin' Up.  All the products used on this project are from Stampin' Up.

I was very pleased with how the finished project turned out.

The box base was made from Crumb Cake cardstock and the lid was made from a piece of Neutrals DSP and stuck down on Crumb Cake cardstock.  The sides of the lid were punch using the Eyelet Border punch to give a decorative edge.  I made some more paper roses with the Fancy Flower punch to decorate the lid, I just could not resist.
