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 5×5 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.
