Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

 Hello Everyone.  It is warming up and the snow is starting to melt and I hope Spring will be upon us soon.  I have made a few cards in a box for family and friends with a Valentine theme, so I thought I would try it with Inspired Stamps flowers and 2 X 2 individual scripture stamps.  I used several sets here: flowers value pack, Spring Sketches, Thank You and I Thessalonians 5:16-18.
I used Kraft cardstock and ghost stamping for the box sides.  I stamped the sunflower image in a light colored Memento chalk ink and then stamped the circle from the Thank You set in cantaloupe.  I also used the smaller circles for filler images.  I colored all the flowers with Copic markers and arranged the flowers in the box, so that there is minimal overlap when card is folded flat so that it will fit in a standard sized envelope.  But what a fun surprise for the recipient.
These would also make great center pieces for an event.
This is the back view.  I matted white cardstock on a piece of yellow and attached to the back.  This is where you can write your message and it reinforces the back of the box.  Below you will see how nicely it fits into a standard sized envelope.  Let me know if you need the dimensions, there are other tutorials out in the blog-o-sphere and they said they fit in a standard sized envelope but they did not, but thankfully I have the envelope punch board so I made a custom envelope for my Valentine cards.  This one does fit in a regular, standard envelope, no additional work required.  Let me know what you think and as always, please check out the other DT members creations and the Inspired Stamps store for all these stamps and so many more.
