Flower Patch Card Box

About time I popped in, huh?  I made this adorable card box at my friend's house with some of the new SU stuff.  I'd been meaning to try one of these for a while, and it wasn't nearly as complicated as I anticipated.  It took me longer to choose stamps and colors than to put it together!

I really enjoyed this project.  I stamped the flowers from the Flower Patch set and cut them out with the matching dies.  (except for the smallest flowers which were fussy cut)  The stamped butterfly is from Papillion Potpourri.  I'll add details below, but I am going from memory since I didn't write anything down.  Too busy creating!  :)

I don't know what set the sentiments are from.  I stamped them on white cardstock and cut them into strips with scissors.

Here's another view of the whole card box, as well as an upper shot so you can see the cardstock dividers.  I still think it's cool how this whole thing folds flat in an envelope!

Stamps:  Flower Patch, Papillion Potpourri, Four Frames (Stampin' Up)
Ink:  Strawberry Slush, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe (Stampin' Up); Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Paper:  Whisper White, Coastal Cabana; In-Color DSP Stack (Stampin' Up)
Misc:  Flower Fair Framelits dies, Decorative Label punch, Elegant Butterfly punch  (Stampin' Up); pearls, rhinestones, pop-up dots
