I know I've been a bad blogger but there just hasn't been much time to craft lately. And the project I did do for my dad's birthday I forgot to take pictures of again before giving it away. I do hope you all had a very nice Christmas though!! Anyway... I have something to show now :). It's an explosion box I bought ages ago at Card Art and I finally decided to decorate it for my friend Diana. Now the box comes completely cut and ready to put together so please don't ask me for patterns... I just don't have them :). Here is the top of the box:
The gorgeous stamp I used is by Lili of the Valley (love their stamps!!) and she is called Rosie with cake (I can't give you a link to the stamp now because Lili of the Valley is closed for a couple more days) and I bought her especially for this project so she is new and that means I get to enter this box in this weeks Lili of the Valley Challenge which is "New Beginnings". The flowers and the ribbon are from Wild Orchid Crafts. All the design papers used are from my old stash and the tickets are by Whimsy Stamps and were cut out with a coordinating die from the same company. Here are more pictures of the box:
"Zin in een kopje thee?" means something like "Want a cup of tea?", I'm taking my best friend out for a High Tea in Hotel DesIndes in The Haghue, which is famous for their High Tea's.
My invitation for the high tea was printed on a couple of tags which I made of a couple of different colours of cardstock. The edges were punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.
The lovely charm I bought at Bunny Zoe's and again was bought especially for this box.
Well I hope you guys like this project. I have to say that I personally think it's one of my best projects yet... sometimes everything just turns out how you had it in your mind and I just loved making this for my best friend :). Since my complete image has been cut out (and 3D paperpieced) I'd also like to enter this box in the Paper Sundaes challenge which is "Cut it out".
Have a wonderful New Years celebration everybody!!!
