Spring Botanical Beauties

Greetings Creation Station stamp friends from near and far!  This month's blog hop features the Botanical Gardens stamps and Builder Framelits.  I decided to pair the Botanical Framelits with the Shine On DSP and Watercolor Paper.  To start, I just cut a a big pile of flowers and leaves and then had some fun adding color to them with an Aqua Painter.
This gift enclosure style card is a 3" x 3" top fold cutie.  The "for you" comes from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.
The Shine On DSP, which is card stock weight, is fabulous for making boxes and bags.  This box was made with the Gift Box Punch Board.  I made the extra large box with a full 12" x 12" sheet.  To mix it up a bit I put the flaps on the outside.  I used another piece from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets for the "enjoy" and a few white accents for a fun detail.
The Shine One DSP works up nicely for a Mini Treat Bag too!  I love the Pool Party Glitter Ribbon and the "thanks" image from the Suite Sayings stamp set.
I am so happy to have had you pop by my blog.  I am sure you are going to enjoy your next stop on the hop.
