Botanical Blooms - Sale A Bration FREE Stamp Set

This shows the gift box closed. The box is 13.5cm x 13.5cm square, as I made it to fit my only square envelopes, which are 13cm square. Not sure where I got the square envelopes from but they are not Stampin Up. The cards are 12cm x 12cm square.

For the decorated top part, the layers are 13.5cm x 13.5cm and 2cm up each side, I had to join to pieces of cardstock together for the cover/lid. The cardstock is lavendar Lace but the textured cardstock MMM! MMM! The next layer is 12cm x 12cm, also Lavendar Lace but the normal A4 cardstock, I stamped it with the flowers in the same ink, all around the outside edge. The next layer is Sage Shadow 10.5cm x 10.5cm normal, then a layer of Sage Shadow textured, 10cm x 10cm, which I stamped with the leaf stamp in the same ink. Black eylets were added in each corner.
The next layer is 7cm x 7cm Lavendar Lace textured, then 6.5cm x 6.5cm Sage Shadow textured. The whisper white layer is 6cm x 6cm stamped with the flowers and leaves in Lavendar Lace and Sage Shadow using the Stamp A Ma Jig. I used the pricking mat to prick a square after I stamped. The Small Lavendar Lace layer was added then the Black Gingham ribbon was wrapped around the layers and tied in a bow. The last 2 layers were popped up with 3D foam pads - Dimensionals.....
The lid slides off, to reveal the cards and envelopes inside.
I made a Friendship card to go with the gift, using the same colours.

I stamped on the inside as well. I love doing the inside as then I know the card is complete and ready to write in. I hate going to my box of cards and then having to fiddle with it before I can get it sent.

Thanks for looking,
