Card tin

Card: whisper white, rich razzleberry, rich razzleberry patterned DSP, wisteria wonder

Ink: rich razzleberry

Stamp set: just believe

Accessories: wisteria wonder ruffled ribbon, rich razzleberry satin ribbon, beautiful wings embosslit, big shot, vintage wallpaper embossing folder, rhinestones, sponge

As promised, here are some pics of the card tin I made my mum (she loved it!). She's a purple kind of gal, so I thought my favourite colour combo would work nicely here. I've actually taken Paula's idea, and used a recent Dilmah tea promotion tin, which worked a treat. Thank Paula!

I have inlaid embossed two of the butterflies, and dimensionalised the big butterfly, which has come up really nicely here. I embossed part of the whisper white (the folder wasn't quite big enough!), and I added some ribbon over the 'join' to add some colour and dimension. Decorating a tin like this took some creativity, but I'm really pleased I made the effort to do something like this for my mum and sister. Now, all I need to do for gifts is to give them a stack of cards to put into the tin! Definitely a gift that can keep on giving!
