The Cutting Cafe - Beautiful Rose

This week's assigned set from the Cutting Cafe was the 'Beautiful Rose' set. This contained printable stamps, shaped cards, sentiments...SO much stuff! As we had already had Mother's Day in the UK back in March (I have NO idea why this date should be different from the US! Father's Day is the same...) I decided to use it to make my Mum's birthday card and matching gift boxes.
I used the 'Mum word block' printable stamp for the background, which I highlighted the word 'MUM" using my prismacolor pencils - I loved the fact that I could get something with the word 'Mum' on it  - I know everyone in the US calls their mother 'Mom' but I still and always will use the English word 'Mum'.
I used the Beautiful Rose printable images and again colored these with my pencils - using one to adorn the card, one to make a tag and one to decorate the boxes.
I made the boxes using the nesting boxes cutting files.
Hope you check out The Cutting Cafe store - they have some amazing deals! Also, check out their blog for some great projects and inspiration.
See you next week, for done of my FAVORITE projects yet! :-)
