Lacy Sunshine Challenge - Punches/Dies

Good morning fellow bloggers! It is time for another challenge over at The Lacy Sunshine challenge blog and the theme is dies/punches. Don't forget that you can enter using any image and that we have a loyalty scheme for a Lacy Sunshine digi too!!!! For the challenge the design Team got to use the totally gorgeous Flower pot pretties, which gave me the opportunity to make another seed packet gift set. The beauty with using digi's is that you can make the image any size so I made them smaller than I normally would for a card, which I must say I think is much harder to colour in as much detail. However having said that I am really pleased with how my project has turned out!
I have used Flower pot pretties - Peonie as my main image on the front of the card! For all the other details on the digi's that I have used please visit the Lacy Sunshine Blog HERE or the official Lacy Sunshine Website HERE.

 This is showing the inside of the gift card without the seed packets

 The individual seed packets
  • I have coloured the images in using copics
  • The main card is 7"x7" and I have made a spine which is 1/2" wide.
  • The papers are Maja Design - Vintage Spring Basics
  • The Spellbinder dies that I have used are Grand decorative circles, Blossom Five, A2 Locking loops
  • I have used distress inks around the images to soften them up.
  • The flowers which I have made are from a punch by Tonic
  • I have used a Martha Stewart punch to give the papers that I have used a pretty border
  • The lace, lilac rose, pearl flowers, pearl on string and self adhesive pearls are all from The Hobby House.  All the other flowers are available from Wild Orchid Crafts.
  • I have used Lily of The Valley stamps for the tag sentiment and the sentiment inside the gift card.
  • To finish of my gift set I have used Stickles Glitter (of course)!
