Our assignment this week was to create a project using anything from our last box of products. Since I hadn’t used the Frosted Medallions set yet and I love medallions, I pulled it off my shelf and got it inky.

I decided I needed to take a little break from Christmas-themed projects and focus instead on birthdays.  This set is a great multi-purpose set.  I love how this sentiment is perfect for birthdays or many other occasions.

Since I wanted to use this for a birthday card, I chose some bright, happy colors — Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, and Emerald Envy.

I started off by brushing on some Daffodil Delight ink onto a piece of Watercolor Paper with a wet paintbrush.  After it had dried, I added some Daffodil Delight and Basic Black splatters with a stamp from Touches of Texture.

I wanted to make a little treat box to go with it, so I used the Baker’s Box Thinlits Die to create a sweet box from Calypso Coral cardstock.  I stamped the smaller medallion with Versamark ink on the cardstock before assembling the box.

I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock with a tag die from the Cheerful Tags Thinlits dies.  A little washi tape from the Playful Palette suite was wrapped along the bottom of the box.

I love how easy it is to make sweet little gifts where everything coordinates so beautifully!
