Global Design Project - Colour Challenge #gdp053

Hi there! It's a 'Colour Challenge' for this weeks Global Design Project #gdp053. And a trio of lovliness too!
My creative brain goes into overdrive when it's 'Colour Challenge' time. I try not to look at the Design Teams creations for inspiration (I know they are going to be outstanding!) however, it's a Challenge for myself to see what I can create. I always think about what's ahead; a Birthday? or other occasion lending to the colours chosen.
 
First, I created a Happy Birthday card. Using Gold - embossing & 'Foil Sheets', Night of Navy - cardstock & 'Baker's Twine' and Watermelon Wonder - flowers from the 'Botanical Builder Framelits Dies'.
 
A close up of the pretty details; 'Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folder', the gold embossed sentiment from 'Birthday Blooms' stampset onto 'Shimmery White' cardstock and my favourite of all details - the tiny bow made from Baker's Twine. 

Then I made these! It's the end of Term 3 next week, and I made a couple of little boxes for my boys teachers as a little 'Thankyou' before they go on their well deserved break.
 
A couple of the cutest boxes filled with treats. These are my go-to boxes as they are so easy to make and you can get 6 lids from 1 sheet of DSP or 12" x 12" paper. I used the NEW 'Fancy Frost Specialty DSP' from the NEW Holiday Catalogue.
 
To make the boxes: 
Bottom: Cardstock 17.7cm x 12.7cm or 6 5/16" x 4 15/16"
Score all 4 sides 4cm or 1 1/2"
Lid: DSP 15cm x 10 cm or 6" x 4"
Score all 4 sides 2.5cm or 1"
I have the Tutorial for you from Sam Hammond aka Pootles Papercraft.

I love the 'Fancy Frost DSP'. There are some beautiful textured patterns from this pack. And a close up of the details; I had to add a bow! The box didn't look complete until I added the Baker's Twine and bow to the lid.
 
Thankyou so much for being here! I hope you have enjoyed my creations and I will be back with more creations next week. Have a wonderful weekend. D x
