Hi there, today I'm really excited to be Guest Designing for Live & Love Crafts. Since it's opening this fabulous store has soon become my favourite craft shop where I can now get the vast majority of my crafty supplies. The range of their beautiful shabby & vintage items continues to grow & develop, and I simply think this is the hottest craft store around right now.
I decided to make a card and box set using thi sstunning Fika paper by Maja Design. The sentiments are by LOTV.
The card (above) was made using Go Kreate Frilly Frame #5 die, and the box (below) with Spellbinders Nestabilities Fuer de Lies dies, the oval die cut is Spellbinders Floral Ovals. I also used my new Martha Stewart clay kit to make the frame & corners on the box, and rose topper on the box & card. I mixed the colours to make a pale lilac & pale green, then added the lilac to the details and filled with green background.
I threaded lilac organza ribbon around the holes in the corner of the Feur de Lies die, then tied into a bow. I added white rose trim and lilac lace around the back and sides of the box and madegrungeboard hinges covered in Snowtex for the front.
To the top of the box I applied Snowtex around the clay frame and behind the rose topper on the front. Flowers & berries are mostly kort & godt, lovely lilac spray from Live & Love Crafts.
