I had a lot of fun making my project for today's hop!  I chose the 3D cherry blossom flower cut from the Silhouette Online Store (ID# 55887, in case you were wondering) as my blossom.  Here's a picture of the two projects together, and then I'll show you each one seperately.

The card was pretty basic, because I wanted the blossom to be the center of attention.  I used a piece of patterned paper from Studio Calico and cut it to the size of an A2 card.  Then I used some white cardstock, but it to the size I wanted for the front of the card, an punched it with a Martha Stewart border punch.  Then I adhered the blossom, which I had cut with my cameo and chalked on the edges for dimension.

The box is also pretty basic, to be honest.  I used another blossom, cut from the cameo and chalked.  I cut the box out from my cameo as well- it's just a basic 3d box, you could use any one you wanted.  I used another sheet of the Studio Calico paper, and adhered the blossom to the top, then used the white cardstock to cut panels for each side (using a ruler and paper trimmer- the panels didn't come with the cameo file) and again punched them with the border punch.

I was really happy with how these came out, and since I went minimalist on the card and box to highlight the flower, they really didn't take very much time.  In fact, after I made these I went back and bought more 3D flowers by the same artist because they were so fun and easy.

  5. I've been tempted to try these flowers but was afraid they wouldn't look "real" enough but these look really lovely. You say you chalked them, hmm, I haven't used chalks in a very long time. Maybe it's time to bring them out again. Beautiful combo!
