A set of thank you cards...

...& a giant matchbox! Thats what we've made today.. after spending the whole day in the craftroom, tidying up, sorting out & trying to write a list of things we need to buy at Alexandra palace on Saturday, we spent a bit of time creating too.

The cards were very easy to make, they measure 10.5cm x 7cm the white on the front has been swiss dotted using the cuttlebug folder through the big shot machine, we scalloped the edge, cut out large flowers with the daisies big shot die, layered them up & attached them with gorgeous SU jumbo brads from the hodgepodge hardware set. The giant matchbox was a bit harder to make.. I had to figure out the measurements & just go for it..as it happened it turned out perfect on the first attempt & its not very often that happens! :) we just added some more swiss dotted paper & a flower on top & added a tiny bit of ribbon to pull open the box with..


Colour combo..
Black
White
Pink Passion
Green galore

Thanks for looking
