Fancy Card and Box Set using Gums and Roses

Hi everyone,
I have a special project to share with you today! It is a set of 8 cards and a box to store them in too. I have used the stunning Gums and Roses Collection by Uniquely Creative. I just love all the beautiful flowers and gorgeous Australian wildlife to fussy cut in this collection. I thoroughly used just had to use it for this slightly larger project.

To create the cards in this project I have followed the steps below:

  • Ink the edges of each card and each cut piece with Pink Petal Ink.
    Adhere one larger cut piece to each prepared card. Foam tape the smaller pieces onto the front of the cards, slightly left of centre.
  • Glue a piece of CHEESECLOTH GAUZE to the front of each card.

To create the box in this project I have followed the steps below:

  • Take an old card board box, I have used one with dimensions 14 x 19 x 6 cm.
  • Cut FULL BLOOM to two 13.5 x 18.5 cm, two 5.5 x 13.5 cm and two 5.5 x 18.5 cm pieces. Cut KAISERCARD TUTU WEAVE CARDSTOCK to the same dimensions as FULL BLOOM. Adhere cut pieces on the inside and outside of the box as desired.
  • Using the same techniques described above, stamp the top of the box and then apply texture paste. Adhere a strip of lace along the top of the box and a strip from EVERYDAY MOMENTS on the bottom.
  • Build a cluster in the centre of the top of the box and the inside of the lid, with fussy cut elements, CREATIVE CUTS and cheesecloth gauze.

I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful using the gorgeous roses of the Gums and Roses collection today.
Stay Safe and Happy Crafting!
