A Card Box and Some Cards

So awhile ago I posted on Facebook that I would make/sell these card boxes filled with 8 cards and envelopes for $20.00, and a good friend of mine ordered one!!  So this is what she is getting!!

I kept the cards fairly simple.  She didn't want any sentiments, which was a challenge in itself, but I managed to do it!!  This card I stamped a stem and the same flower with 2 shades of purple.  I cut one out and used a dimensional, and used a rhinestone for the center of each.  Inked the edges with purple, and used a Fiskars template for the shape. 

I used my Stampin Up set for this flower, and tied a ribbon, and attached a rhinestone to the center just for a little something extra.  It's also mounted on black cardstock which is hard to tell because of the black chair I used to take the picture.

Another Stampin Up set.  I used my sponge dauber to make the clouds.  I also used some hemp twine to create a nest for the bird which was stamped then cut out.  I also used some ribbon to create the grass at the bottom. 

So simple it doens't even require an explanation!!

The stamp is from Stampin Up and was coloured with Stampin Up markers. The red scalloped piece was in my scrap drawer.  Added some ribbon for a finishing touch. 

I used both sides of double-sided paper for this and added some bling. 

I think this one is my fave!!  I used Glimmer Mist to create the background, then paper pieced all the leaves and birds on, I then finished it off with some white Glimmer mist just to give it a bit of shine!!

Another simple, self explanatory card!!

That's it, and that's all!!  Thanks for looking!!  :)
