Flowers and chocolate - recycled card

Have you ever been in a situation, where you were invited  for a birthday, but did not have a handmade card at hand? Well… I have... and I promised myself that would be the last time! It is like shoemaker without shoes.

Summerbird box and card with foamiran flowers

What does chocolate and the card have in common? Summerbird makes the most delicious exquisite chocolates, nicely wrapped and packed in beautiful boxes. Once the sweets have been enjoyed, the box can become a new home to a dimensional card. VoilĂ !

I measured the cardstock to fit into the box. Papers are mostly from Fabrika Decoru "Smile of Spring" collection. Background are some disguised Easter chipboards, wooden paper stripes, cheese cloth, doily and fussy cut flowers. I have added tiny piece of silk ribbon on the side, so that it would be easy to pick the card from the box.

Eye should be drawn to the central piece in the composition - handmade foamiran flowers. They are slightly distressed in pastel colours. Leaves have also been distressed with different shadows of green. As the last touch, I added pink sequins.
