One Stamp At A Time Bring on the Birthdays BLOG HOP!

Welcome to the OSAT BIRTHDAY BASH! By now you've seen some incredible projects, and I bring you one last car and 3D item. I'm going to share with you my box, first. It's super simple in design but the magic happens in all the elements and layers.  This box and card are going to a very special stamping friend, TURNING 40 next week on March 21st! Be sure to stop by that Stampin' Mother Tucker and sing, comment, send a singing telegram or call her and wish her the best! I already have 2 gifts sent but a third is on its way (this project). I'm using her favorite DSP, Petal Promenade and some beautiful accessories to go with it. This photo shows you the box, pulled out from its cover.
In this image I'm showing you the box while it's half slid out so that you can get an idea of how it goes together.
And this, my friends, is it all put together and decorated.  I used the coveted Petal Pink/Whisper White variegated ribbon, wrapped around the entire thing and sealed with a big ole bow. Like JoJo. I layered circles of Petal Pink cardstock, vellum and then the stitched labels framelit cut in Mossy Meadow layered with more Petal Pink and then "BIRTHDAY" stamped in Blackberry Bliss onto vellum and trimmed to top it.  The stamp set is from the Darling Label Punch Box in the annual catalog. I stamped the baby butterfly in Blackberry Bliss ON Blackberry Bliss and attached hi, with a baby dimensional. There's a die cut leaf tucked in there, a piece of Pearlized Doily back there too. I JUST COULDN'T STOP so there's also a couple of rhinestones!

Let me give you a few suggestions for trying this one yourself. This is what the scored piece of Mossy Meadow looks like.
Then you need to use your paper snips up the two middle score lines.  This is a 3 sided box, so we don't need anything else. You'll just adhere those flaps up together and you've got it!
This is the Blackberry Bliss cover. It's score just a teeny bit wider than the base and gave myself an extra 1/2" on the end so that we can seal it into itself. Then I took that BEAUTIFUL strip of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and glued it right down the center before the adorning began!
This is the card that I created to coordinate with the box. It's an OTT (Over-the-top) card with the inside decorated, as well as the envelope.  I used a Mossy Meadow card base and layered an embossed piece of Petal Pink on top. This is a new embossing folder called Country Floral and YOU NEED IT! Gosh, it's just stunning! So that went on with another piece of that gorgeous Petal Promenade DSP and then I started repeating the same layers and embellishments I'd done on the box. Pearlized doily, vellum, rhinestones, variegated ribbon , stitched framelit and a little butterfly!

This is a shot of the inside. I used the Stitched All Around stamp set with Blackberry Bliss ink on a Petal Pink matte. There's a piece of a vellum doily tucked up into the corner and the DSP is carried in with a strip across the bottom.

These two showcase the coordinated envelope. Since it's going to Andrea, I went all out. On the front, to the left, is an embossed piece of Petal Pink with a layer of Mossy Meadow added too and then one of our little Blackberry Bliss butterflies. I used another piece of that gorgeous DSP to adhere to the envelpe flap and then trimmed around it to finish it                                                off!

It's all going out in the mail to her tomorrow, so shhhh...... Can't divulge what I'm putting in there, just in case she checks my blog.  Thank y'all soooo much for hanging in there til the end and hopping along! We'll be back next month with some SPRING FLING to inspire you!.
