Wow!  I had some amazing comments yesterday!  I’m so glad everyone loved the Scrapbook in a Box.  It is just a great project and easy to adapt to so many things.  It would be cute decorated like a baby block full of baby pictures!

Thank you! Thank you! For all the wonderfully nice comments. I loved reading them all and I think I replied to everyone.  If I missed you I’m sorry I had a lot!  And some replies came back with errors so the email address didn’t work for some reason.

I was going through some scrapbook pages and found this card mixed in with them.  I don’t think I have shared it on my blog.  I thought I would share it with you today for a couple of reasons – one it used some of the colors that will be retiring and because the embossing folder matches the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set which is on sale through April 30th.

This card uses the Big Shot Die Cut Machine with the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder.  The roses are embossed onto Shimmery White card stock and then the debossed side is brayered to give the variation in color – I used Regal Rose (a light layer so roll some off onto your scratch paper first) and Summer Sun.  Then cut out around the embossed roses before attaching to the card.

The card base is Regal Rose with a layer of Barely Banana.  The greeting is from the Oval All stamp set.  Since the embossing folder matches the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set I used the flower from the stamp set to decorate the envelope.

Summer Sun and Barely Banana are two of the colors that will be retiring.  You could use So Saffron and the new Daffodil Delight in their place. I hope you like it!
