Today we are using stamps from Nordic Spring (remember the Nordic Winter set?!) and Florentine Frippery.
I used Claire's new Angle Top Label Box (another freebie at the WMS shop!) for my tea bag box - but I left off the cover - making mine an open container. I left the back piece on so it extended above the box as a backing for my butterfly. The Good Morning Sentiment is from yesterday's French Country Set. I die cut it with a Mega Rectangles Nestabilities and adhered it to one wing of the butterfly with foam tape.
The butterfly, little heart and row of tulips are from Nordic Spring.
Here's a pic of how I stamped the sides
and a pic of the pieces I cut to line the box. The blue back piece is 2 5/8 x 3 3/4, the side pieces are 2 5/8 x 2 3/8 (angle cut down to 1 3/8) the bottom piece is 2 5/8 x2 5/8 and the front piece is 2 5/8 x 1 1/2 (each piece had to be trimmed a tad - so, if you do this, place each piece inside to check the fit before adhering!)
I inked the beautiful butterfly with 3 different shades of blue. The grass is die cut from green tissue paper. I die cut a coaster from Labels 16 Nestabilities for the base, covering the top with patterned paper and stamping this handmade stamp from yesterday's sneak peeked set Make Your Mark
Here's what I stamped on the back of my card - from Make Your Mark
and here's the set together!
pellbinders Labels 25 - but since I don't have these I just cut it out with my trusty scissors! After stamping the background on white and layering it to a black panel, I tied the wrinkled seam tape around the panels and then adhered the label over the ribbon with foam tape. All the edges are sponged with Antique Linen ink. I love the old fashioned formal wording of the sentiments in this set!
That's it from me today!
So off we go to check out the wonderful creations the rest of the WMS Design Team has created for today's Sneak Peeks! Hope you can come by again tomorrow for Day #3!
