Welcome to my Stampin' Space, and to the Blog Hop for Creation Station for April! We're stamping some Spring Flowers, and using the Botanical Gardens Suite!
So I decided to use the Botanical Builders Framelits - because I love that there are so many pieces, and choices of flowers in this set! The colors in the Designer Series Papers are pretty, and beautifully tropical - but to me, they are not very Spring-like (at least for California standards)! So I decided to go for a clean look, and to use the Subtles Collection for a different look!
I made a simple card and a Pyramid Box, using the Pyramid Pals Thinlits!
On the card, I used white on white for the base. And for some texture, I used the Arrows Embossing Folder on one layer! Pink Pirouette, Calypso Coral and Wild Wasabi were my color palate. And the Sunburst Sayings set was used for the greetings!
I have made a few of these pyramid boxes lately - and was kind of surprised at how little they are (I love little tho!). So, in creating this version, I added the smaller Botanical Builders flower to make the fit look more appropriate. And then I also wanted the bow to fit right too, but I wanted the Pink Pirouette Seam Binding, so that it would coordinate with the flower. It felt too wide, so I decided to give it a trim!
I used the Rotary attachment on the Stampin' Trimmer to 'split' the Seam Binding in half! It got a little frayed look, but I love the look! And, of course, a perfect match with the Pink Pirouette flower!
