This is the card and chocolate box I made for my Mum for Mother's Day using a colour combo of Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade. For the card I matted a piece of Whisper White onto Calypso Coral cardstock and punched an aperture with the large circle punch. I laid this onto a card blank and stamped the 'Mum' (from For my Family') and a retired sentiment so it could be seen through the aperture. I removed this from the card blank and stamped the leafy branch and flowers from Field Flowers and the tied a bow with some Calypso Coral ribbon (retired) before fixing back onto the card blank with dimensionals. The 'happy mothers day' from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped onto Whisper White and punched out with the Word Window punch.
For the gift I measured the chocolates and made an open top box and then made a wrap, slightly bigger than the box, to put round. A mat of Whisper White was glued to the front and decorated with the same stamps and ink.
On Friday it is Red Nose Day and, at school, we are having a fund raising afternoon so I thought I would make another of these sets (obviously for a different occasion) and maybe raffle it to raise a little bit of money for such a worthwhile cause - the other set does include a small bottle of wine with matching tag so hopefully I will be able to sell some tickets!!! I'll be back to show you that tomorrow.
