Wedding Box      

 A friend of mine wanted me to make a wedding card for her (it's so much easier if someone just picks out one that I've already made-umph).

She gave me some colors, but it was kind of hard to get exact colors.  After tons of  emails (cause we don't really know each other, personally), this is what I came up with. I added some Perfect Pearls on the hard white part of the flower.  You can't tell on the far away pic, but you can on the closeup (sort of).  The flowers, beads, and silver metal leaves I got on clearance at our local craft store.  They we all parts of something else that I took apart.  Pretty clever, don't you think? haha 

If you're wondering why I'm posting the just the box without the card is that I am waiting for ink for my printer to come in, so I can't print anything for the card.  I will post the card that goes with this when I am done.

Recipe:  paper-Bazzill, stickers-Stickopotomus,"Perfect Pearls" Ranger and the flowers, beads, and silver metal leaves are pieces of things that I took apart

 Wedding Card
I finally got my ink---yea.  I couldn't wait to get started on this project.  I had a deadline, so with making it and shipping time, I have to admit, I was a little worried. 
When Heather gave me the poem she wanted to use for the card I knew this was the digi that I wanted to use.  It's from Floppy Latte Designs (who is part of Stitchy Bear Stamps).  I had a friend of mine put the poem inside the box, as I don't have any programs for this kind of stuff.  As with the box, the big white flower and the silver leaves was something I bought on clearance and took apart.  The middle little plastic flower parts I just got in the mail.  They're from Creative Charms.  They are blue but look sort of purple.
On both the inside and outside of the card, I used the same digi, but rotated it and added stickles and pearls.  Although you can't tell in the pic, I used the Spica markers in "buttermilk" for the little stamons (things in the middle of the flower-I think that's what they are called) and "sand" for the stems.  It gives them a little shimmer and added stickles to the center of  the flowers and edge of the frame in "diamond"   I added a piece of paper to the front of the slit on the middle section that I cut with both punches.  The ribbon is stash.

Recipe (for card) paper- Bazzill (2 shades of purple), digi-Floppy Latte Designs "Lily Frame", markers-Copics, at you "Spica", Marvy "Le Plume III-silver", American Crafts "Metalics", stickles-Ranger "diamond", punch-Martha Stewart "Botanical Scallop"and ribbon punch (unknown), pearls-Hero Arts "purple" and Kaiser Crafts "white", dies-Nesties "Labels 10", ribbon-stash
