Floral Expressions 10 Card Box Set. “A Step Back In Time”.

I was asked to make a special Card Box Set that would house 10 Cards in Purple and Lilic. My mind quickly went back in time to a paper collection called Floral Expressions. I was thinking maybe 2009, well I found it went back further than that. It was in 2006 when we had this collection. So I reworked a box I had created in Design Space and decided to incorporate a butterfly in the design. I used an image from the latest CTMH cartridge “Artistry”, image # M58A2E4. I first just used the shape outline to cut the  butterfly shape into my box design. As I worked with it I changed the body on the butterfly so it would fit in the space overlapping it enough as to create 3D wings using the top layer of said butterfly.  It really worked out very nicely. 

Other things I used were :

X7061B Floral Expressions a paper Packet, X5667 Petal Card Stock, X5631 Amethyst Card Stock, White Daisy Cards and Envelopes,  Petal, Black, & Amethyst Inks, C1391 Embrace Life, C1299 Butterfly Kiss, A1108 A Flitter, D1627 Your Own Kind of Wonderful Stamp Collections. Most everything is from CTMH (to which is mostly retired products now). I used a few non CTMH products to embellish the box and cards, just a few though.    

As I finished up I decided the recipient of this beautiful box should have a Birthday Card to match si I created this one for her.


I played with the left over pieces of paper and created a cut file for the lattice cut in design space. These are the last two cards from that.
