Monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Thinking of You

Hello friends!

Welcome to our April Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop focusing on products for celebrating the women in your life. If you arrived from Sandy Ward's blog, you saw her wonderful Bloom By Bloom project!

My "girly" project is a 2-fer...a card with a small gift box, both featuring Highland Heather cardstock; the floral card features Highland Heather Gingham Gala designer series paper (DSP) and the gift box, a mini pizza box, is just the right size for a gift card or other small gift.

Are you a fan of the Highland Heather color? I'd love to hear what your favorite color of the moment it is. Leave me a comment and let me know what color you're currently favoring. As you see below, Highland Heather is a current go-to for me!

Incredible Like You and Rooted in Nature card
Highland Heather cardstock (cs) 5.5 x 8.5"
White cs, 2.75 x 2.75 stitched square, 3 x 4", and 4 x 5.25" (inside)
Gingham Gala DSP, 4 x 5.25"

The inspiration for this card came from Liz Miller; click here see her card and blog post.

Although I used several retired items to create my mini gift box, there are many current products that can be used to create a similar project--and I've listed them below. This little box came together surprising fast!
