3GirlJam Design Team Post

Good morning my friends and welcome visitors!

Today is my turn to post on the 3GirlJam Design Team Blogspot.  I would like to show you a gift card and box that I made for my neighbor and gardening friend Kathleen. It took me a long time to make this project because I had to wait for the stores to sell packets of flower seeds!  Warning, this is going to be picture heavy!



Almost all of the paper is Graphic45.



I used a card from SVGCuts Mom's Garden Gifts SVG Kit but I changed it around a little and added some 3GirlJam Distressed Lace.  I cut it out on my Cameo Silhouette.

Here is the top of the box.



I fussy cut the sentiment and the sunflower button was a free gift in my 3GirlJam order.  I colored the wood part of the box with my Quick Quote Powder Puff Chalk - Rusty Nails

Here is the front of the box.



And here is the inside of the box.



The name of the Graphic45 paper is Time To Flourish - August.

Every time I make a new box; I think of the fun day I spent with my friend Brenda when she taught me how to decorate these boxes. It is wonderful to have such talented gal pals!

I am entering this project into the following challenges:

Craftin' Dessert Diva's - Anything Goes Linky Party Week 2
Die Cuttin Divas - CH#209 - Anything Goes

"When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."
- Carol L. Riser, Autumn
