Card in a box

Hello folks,

Well the day i saw the digi stamp i got from Ericraft stamp as design team member, i had this card in mind.
I created a card in a box by upcycling a brochure.

 I have collected number of brochures as we are in search of new home. I kept them safely as they are really study enough to work on.
Moving ahead with the card
I cut a rectangle measuring 13 inches by 7 inches.

Scored the longer side at 3", 6", 9" and 12".
Now rotate the paper and score at 4" on 7" side.
Now cut on the score lines 3, 6, 9 and 12 inch till u reach 4 inch scoreline.
You will get like this

I used party themed pattern paper and butterfly designed foil paper to cover up the brochure.
I joined the extra 1 inch (12"-13" ) left on one side to stick to the opposite end and create a box. Folded the three flaps on outside n leaving one straight as it is.

I stamped flowers from botonical bloom stamp set from mudra stamps and fussy cut it.
I used jef heart die 2 different sizes and embossed the smaller die cut and used twoway tape to create a depth.
I arranged the flowers to create a garden scene and stuck them using strips of acrylic sheet so they wont be visible and will even move with wind.
I colored the stamp"flowers for you" using zig clear brush markers and arranged it on to of heart.
I die cut the die "you" i bought from DCAM stamped Love and fussy cut it.

For the first time i tried selective embossing.
It was fun and brought life to the project.

Hope you all enjoyed it.
