Fairie Dust Decorative Box & Card Set

By Annette Green

 

Nothing is quite as nice as a handmade gift.  We love giving (and of course, receiving) boxes filled with blank cards.  They come in handy for all those important dates, and the box can double as an organizer once all the cards have been given out.  Annette has gone above and beyond with this set including handmade matching envelope with our Fairie Dust collection to go along with each card.  Love it!

    Tip: Add a DIY base with chipboard to elevate our 5x5 Mixed Media Boxes.  This step takes our boxes to new heights.  

     

    Tip: Paint our Claw Metal Feet (will be back in stock April 2018) to match any project.  Annette has painted hers silver with a touch of black in to make all of the details pop.

    ‘Love is a Great Beautifier’ Card

    By Annette Green



    Little Women is the perfect collection for celebrating, it is full of bright and bold colors to evoke smiles and happiness to any recipient.  This card would be the perfect addition to a birthday or Mother's Day.  We are loving how Annette has added our Square Tag Clock Die (now in stores - available on our online shop April 2018) and cut out the doily frame and clock to add elegance.  As well as fussy cut flowers from the design papers to add more dimension.

    My names are Robert Jason want to testify about this great love spell caster that helped me bring back my ex wife. My ex wife and i where having a misunderstanding which led to our breakup though i went to beg her several times to please forgive and accept me back because i know i offended her but each time i went i always feel more deeply in pain and agony because she always walk out on me and would not want to listen to what i have to tell and i felt so empty inside me, my loneliness became worst, until this faithful day i was browsing through the internet i saw a testimony on the internet testifying of Dr Raypower good work, i contacted him which he assured me within 48 hours for an instant result. Just same 48 hours as he promised my wife now came back home begging for forgiveness to love and cherish her and the kids forever, am so happy and thankful to Dr Raypower,,, My wife is madly in love with me again.

    Annette, the cards in a box is stunning! I do have a question about the Mod Podge glitter though: I have heard that the Mod Podge stays 'tacky' always. Is this true or is there a correct way to apply this product that avoids that issue?

    That fairy box is wonderful. Sorry to say I don't have the time just now to enter but I doubt I would be good enough to be a grand ambassador in any case. Good luck all xx

    What a lovely gift to create for someone very special! Thanks for the tip about adding sparkle to an entire project. Beautiful cards! Square envelopes require special handling, so be prepared to add that extra stamp to pay for it...well worth the price!
