Yesterday a few of us were honored to celebrate with our friend/team leader her 2 million in career sales. Many of the Demonstrators in Patty’s group contributed money towards a Brighton Gift card and made cards for Patty. I will share the card I made for her tomorrow. Today I’m going to share the box I decorated to put all the cards I received for Patty.
Its not a celebration unless you have cake, right? White Chocolate Raspberry cake from Just Bundt Cakes. It was delicious!
I started with a piece of Shimmery Cardstock and sponged, Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral & Petal Pink Ink. We refer to these colors as “Patty” colors. lol
Then I punched out a bunch of the Scallop Hearts, spritzed them with rubbing alcohol & Shimmer Paint, scrunched them up and let them dry.
Really, I can’t believe I didn’t take a photo when I was putting them together……I used our Silicone Mat and hot glued the bottom of the hearts together offsetting them as I went. Once I got the flower big enough and the way I wanted, I cupped them in my hand and scrunched a little more. Then I dipped the tips of the flower into Versamark Ink (again no photo….) and Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.
For the inside of each flower I took a piece of Black cardstock, 2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 1″ and adhered together so now you have 1″ x 8 1/2″. I took our old Fringe Scissors (you could also just cut with regular scissors) and cut into about 1/2″. Then rolled up adhering with hot glue every so often. Fan out the fringe part and glue the opposite end to the center of your flower.
For the smaller roses I used a retired (a LONG time ago when we had the big thick dies) Spiral Flower Die. It is one retired item I pull out every so often. I die cut 3 each of Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral & Petal Pink and sponged with same color. I spritzed each one and scrunched up into a ball and let dry. I used my Heat Tool to speed up the drying time. Then rolled each one up and glued together with hot glue. I flattened each flower a little and dipped into Versamark Pad and then into Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.
I used a bunch of the leaves from the Poppy Moments Dies in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow. Each one was also sponged with same colors. I punched some Vellum leaves with the Leaf Punch and again, dipped in my Versamark Pad and then Gold Embossing Powder and heat set. I made the bow using Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon & 5/8″ Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon. The bow maker I used is called Pro Bow, the Hand. Its really made for using larger ribbon, but I made it work fine for this ribbon. I added the flowers and leaves with hot glue, placing the leaves randomly around the flowers.
I found the box at Michael’s. I loved the saying on the side, ENJOY every little thing. I was going to decorate a basket, but when I saw this I knew it would be better. Now Patty can keep all her celebration cards in one place.
I finished off the top with some Clear Epoxy Droplets that I colored with Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend. The sentiment comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, its embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I think I went back and splattered some Wink of Stella by using the lid on the whole thing.
I decided to add some Petal Pink Small Blossoms (SAB) all around. I had all ready taken my photos when I decided to add them.
So once again, so proud to be a part of Patty’s downline and get to celebrate her milestone. She is the 6th person in Stampin’ Up! to achieve 2 million in career Sales. WOW!
Remember the Spiral Flower Die & the Fringe Scissors are retired and no longer available.
