First I have a slight announcement. The Hobby House is having a fun challenge this month where you can enter both old and new creations. All that is required is that you use one of their toppers on your creation! What’s great is that even us on the design team get to enter! Another reason for me to get my stuff added to the blog this month, hehe. Their toppers really are quite fantastic and I have loved using them over the past year, long before I asked to join their team. Check out the challenge here and the toppers here!
The reason I went to Thailand last month was because a friend of mine was getting married there. The wedding was absolutely beautiful! When I got back home I made her this card and the matching box for it.
The card is made with various bits from my stash as well as a Hobby House topper and pearls, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and various punches by Martha Stewart. The tiny little jar was bought at a crafting faire last year and inside I put sand I brought with me from the beach the wedding was held on, in Hua Hin.
The box is made with flowers and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts. A bigger jar of sand from the beach with a tiny little bow made from a hanging strap on one of my jumpers; it was the only one I cound find that was thin enough, heh. The punches are from Martha Stewart, the paper from Pion, the dies are spellbinders and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.
Here is a photo of the card in the box. The ribbon around the edge of the box is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
