Poppy Gift Set


Welcome! today marks the start of teasers for the My Favorite Things March release. Today we're previewing the latest set and Die-namics from the amazing Lisa Johnson Designs line.


I have a gift set I put together for my Mother in Law's birthday which happens to be today!

I've created three 3x3 notecards and packaged them up in a new box that works with the Trapezoid Treat Die-namics!

Do you see that new cardstock? That's Electric Red - a gorgeous red that is fast becoming a favourite of mine! 

 and yes, those are Electric Red buttons, and there is also new ribbon and ink - love!

I've gone with different layouts using different stamps for each notecard. The poppies are stamped in Wild Cherry ink and they leaves are in the new Gumdrop Green. For two of the cards, I punched a recess and added an Electric Red button. 


This is the inside of all three of the cards - how lovely is that sentiment?
This is the new flower box, that fits perfectly with the Trapezoid Treat Die-namics. I've sponged mine lightly with Kraft ink and cut out the poppy and leaves using the matching Die-namics. The sentiment is stamped on a Fishtail Flag STAX that I ran through my big shot twice, to get an embossed edge all the way around.
Here are the cards sitting in the box.

I packaged up the whole ensemble in a cellophane bag with a big Electric Red bow!

Here are the wonderful My Favorite Things goodies I've used today:
