The Melon Mambo gatefold card measures 5 1/2" square and I used Mint Macaron CS for the mat layers. I stamped two separate pieces of Crumb Cake CS with the SU! 'Hardwood' stamp, trimmed them to size, edged both pieces with Soft Suede ink using a sponge dauber and glued both faux wood panels to the Mint Macaron mat layers. I used stamps from the SU! 'Flower Shop' and 'Petite Petals' sets to decorate the hexagonal element. I stamped the flowers in Melon Mambo ink (1st and 3rd generation stamping), Soft Suede ink (1st and 2nd generation stamping) and Mint Macaron ink, I snipped between each petal, shaped each flower and popped a rhinestone jewel in each flower centre.
Here's the inside of the gatefold card.
Here's the envelope flap.
I stamped the two pieces of Crumb Cake CS needed for the box with the 'Hardwood' stamp before I die cut the two box shapes. I stamped a separate 'Hardwood' panel, cut it with a hexagon die, inked the edges with Soft Suede ink and popped it up. The large flowers and 'for you' label are also popped up.
Here's a side view of the box. After gluing the box together I inked all the edges with Soft Suede ink applied with a sponge dauber. I do like adding a ribbon pull - this one is made from Melon Mambo stitched satin ribbon.
I had a wonderful time getting this out of my system and I'm happy how it turned out!
