Pleated paper on the Card and Box

Pleated paper on card and box… plus a little frill to add dimension to the pleating… 
The Card and the Box 

When I saw the challenge this week on Just Rite, I knew exactly what I wanted to do… so all I had to do, was to create it.. I love off white and white mixed.. and a little bit of pink and green.. oh wow… really sent my heart to beating fast… 
The Card

The Challenge is to make a spring or Birthday card, with an envelope or box to match… I knew that the card I was going to make would not fit comfortably into an envelope… so I would make a box that would match… and then I would also make a card with a fancy envelope too…

Okay… so I gathered up my papers, punches and Pretties by Bonnie… and was set to create this card and box…

Pleating the off white paper… punching the edging using a Martha Stewart punch… and then adding the medallion made from the Just Rite stamps… a few leaves from a Spellbinder set… and I was almost done… I made a few flowers using a 2, 1.5 and 1.25 inch flower from Pretties by Bonnie collection… painted them… and then molded them… adding a large pearl in the center… the Card… it is 6 x 6 inches… the box… it is 4 inches square… bows and trims added … and I was pleased… of course these already will used for a special person’s birthday… hope she loves is like I do…

That is the hardest part of making some of these cards, gifts and books… it is giving them away… they are a part of me… and I love them… each and every one of them.. I love to look thru the BOXES and BOXES of them that I have created… really a lot of love has gone into making them all… 

Hope that you enjoy this set… and that it inspires you to make a matching set… or to plant some seeds to create a pretty blooming area in your yard… that is the next item on my list of to do’s…. 

Thanks for stopping by for a visit… make sure you scroll down to see the other cards that I have made for this challenge…
Love, Light and Peace....Bonnie
