I have chosen to recreate Nadine' s Birthday Ballon project which she made with window box framelit and the matching card to go with the window box.
What stood out for me in Nadine's creation is the colour combo, and the idea of a matching card and a gift box. So that is what I have decided to take away from this example and recreate a version of my own. Here I have decided to use the new In Colours 2017-2018 Lemon Lime Twist and a touch of Berry Burst.
I have used the flourishing thinlit dies, and used the both the negative and positive cut out together. This bit is a little tricky as it requires for a delicate touch. As I didn't want the cut out bits come away completely from the paper, I had to be very careful when transporting it from the Big Shot to the card front, keeping all the pieces intact.
Finishing the card with a touch a of Berry Burst under the tag is just what it needed to give the card a bit more diversity and depth.
Making the window box was a lot less complicated using the window box thinlit dies, its pretty easy to put together. I used the left over flourishing die cuts to decorate the box.
Again added a touch of pink (Berry Burst) on top of the window box to tie it in with the card. Who knew that just a tiny bit of pink would make such a huge difference. Less is definitely more with this project.
What I really love about this project is that it's a clean and a simple card and gift box. There aren't many bells and whistles with this card, its doesn't need any. The white flourishing die cuts on the vibrant lemon lime twist is just perfect.
