OSAT February Blog Hop: Sixteen Candles

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you may projects for the February 2020 One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop; this month our theme was Sixteen Candles.  So I came up with a super cute birthday card and gift box for you.  I used the Forever Blossoms Bundle and other products from the Parisian Blossoms Suite from the Stampin' Up! January through June Mini Catalog.  I created a Double Hidden Magnetic Closure Flip Top Box for my 3D project and a super cute card.  Here's a look at my project. 

Happy Birthday Card: 

I started out by designing the card for my project first.  I wanted to use the designer series paper but I also wanted the floral branch to be dominate on my project.  So I decided on a peek a boo design.  I started out by stamping and coloring two of the cherry blossoms from the Forever Blossoms Bundle.  I used my Crumb Cake, Petal Pink, and Pool Party Stampin' Blends Combo packs to color each of the cherry blossoms.  Once that was done I cut them out with the matching dies.  I also marked off on my designer series paper where I wanted the blossoms to fit and did partial die cutting to have a place to place the blossoms.  My card base is a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that I scored at 5 1/2 to make a A2 size top folding card.  I then added the designer series paper to the top and bottom sections.  After that I popped the two Cherry Blossoms up in place on Dimensionals.  To finish off the card I die cut the words happy and birthday from the Well Said Dies and placed them on the center of the card.  

 Forever Blossoms Double Magnetic Closure Flip Top Box:

For my box I came up with the design based off my card.  I knew that I wanted it to have the same Peek a boo feel, but it was a matter of figuring out just how to do it.  I knew I wanted the designer series paper to be a feature on the card just like I did with the card.  So I came up with the Flip top box.  The base of the box is Crumb Cake cardstock while the top of the box is the Parisian Blossoms Speciality Designer Series Paper.  Once I had the design figured out it was pretty easy as you will see in the video tutorial.  I used one sheet of cardstock for the box.  One cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and the other half I cut down to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Once I assembled the pieces and added the 4 1/4 x 10 piece of DSP I added the magnets and floral accents.  The ribbon around the box is purely decorative.
