Flower Gift Box and Gift Tag

This week’s creation is a gift box and tag, decorated using an array of Cheery Lynn Designs flowers, foliage and borders. The box itself measures 7 inch square, so a great size for an arrangement of flowers...and perfect to host a pile of chocolates inside.
For the centre flower, I used ‘all’ of the stacker flowers (each stacker flower was cut twice – all up 10 layers) and built lots of dimension through fluffing the petals up.  The centre was created using the Large and Medium Rose.  All in all, to build the larger flowers in this arrangement, I did not stick to one die; each flower has mixed dies to make one flower.  

I totally adore the little tiny daisy like flowers made from the Darling Daisies die. These die cut flowers can be built up into many different sized flowers, just by combining the different sizes.
I used “Dazzling Diamonds” glimmer mist over my whole project, which left the most glorious shimmer to the whole project – including the gift tag.  This can be seen more so if you enlarge the flowers.  Dazzling Diamonds is such a pretty glimmer mist to use on 'any' project, as it does not over-power in colour - just adds a shimmer affect.
The new release French Flair DoilyStacker was used as a base of the arranagement, along with the Large SunflowerDoily.
The borders used around outside of the box are the Anastasia and Border Carnival dies. Ribbon was used to finish, and a bow added.
The challenge theme for this week is “Tis the Season”, you can view all the challenge details by clicking “Here”... and may even win the $20 voucher, and this week there is also a guest sponsor "Di's Digi Downloads" who is offering a $10 store voucher as well.  I am looking forwards to seeing the entries...
And before I sign off for the week, I want to wish all the Cheery Lynn Designs customers and fans, a "Merry Christmas"... and may 2012 be a healthy, prosperous and creative year 
for all.
Till next week...
