Happy Mother's Day Gift

Here is a project I've spent the week working on. It is a special Mother's Day gift with card. I made one of those ornament punch roses but instead of leaving my card stock alone I dyed my shimmery white paint So Saffron and Orchid Opulence. That is part of why it took me so long to finish the project. I had to wait for the So Saffron to dry then I painted on the Orchid Opulence and waited for that to dry. It looks beautiful and was well worth the wait time IMO.
This is the gift part of this. It is an original box design that will hold two full sized chocolate bars or the 6.5X3.25 long card that fit in our Small Open End Envelopes. So you could make this a pretty stationary set or a candy holder. These projects were so much fun and I really enjoyed making a new box design up. 3-D projects are totally my thing. Have a stamp happy day!
