Yellow and Black card in a box.

I got an order for a card in a box for a work colleague to give to her daughter.  Instructions were flowers and yellow and black.  I really enjoy making these cards in a box but I do wonder if I overdo them.


I found some yellow PP and lined the outside and the inner flaps.  Then I used a punch to make the flowers.  I used two sizes.  I used a flourish for my holder for the flowers.  Added a few butterflies and stamped the sentiment onto a white circle.   

I got rave reviews from my colleague. Her daughter LOVED it and is now considering asking me to make her wedding invites.  She will have some ideas and come back to me to get some samples done.   Not too sure if I really want the pressure of making so many invites.  I'll see what I she wants before making a decision. 

Been a bit AWOL this week.  Work is busy and I seem to have no time left at the end of each day.  I've started walking in the late afternoon now it's getting lighter.  Got for the weight but cuts into crafting time!

Have an awesome week.

Love these colours Dawnm and you have made a great job of the card. I would also hesitate to commit to make wedding invites. Love the longer and warmer days and my vegetable garden is starting to look good.
Blessings

This is amazing, Dawn! Who wouldn't love to receive this? Looks time consuming to me - is there a tutorial for this somewhere?

Making wedding invitations is a big commitment, but you would do a fabulous job with them, I'm sure.

How lovely, Dawn! I'm not surprised that this was a big hit all around! We have a native wildflower here that we call brown-eyed Susans - these remind me of them......

Fabulous! I'd say this is a case of '... and sometimes MORE is more.' Looks brilliant, Jo x

Hello Dawn,
I can see why it was a hit, it is dramatic and loud, everything a young
girl would love; attention grabber.
I do not think it is over done at all just fabulous.
