Fred, She Said Designs Digi of the Week

As a member of the Design Team at Fred, She Said Designs, we each get to pick out one of Tracey's amazing digis to put on sale at the store.  I've picked the Sunflowers and Thankfulness digi and pre-colored sets.  These sets are on sale at the Fred, She Said store for 40% off through midnight Monday, October 25th.
My sample project using this digi set is a tea light box card. 


You can find instructions for how to make one of these at Stampartic.  All the measurements are in metric, which is what I used and it really wasn't hard at all.  I did have to do a little tweaking on some of the design paper measurements only because of the particular border punch I used on the edges.
The card base is Bazill French Vanilla and the Design paper is Recollections from Michaels.  If you've never bought one of Tracey's digi sets before you need to know that you don't just get one image.  In this set you'll find sentiments, individual and group sunflowers, the frame, and the frame and flowers. 
I combined one of the sentiments and the frame and flowers for the cover of the card box.  A little bit of punch work, some pearls, ribbon and the image colored with watercolour pencils make up the cover.

On the inside there is a pocket with a tag that I made using the sunflower grouping, also colored with watercolour pencils.  The little swirly flourish on the pocket was created with Glossy Accents and bronze Perfect Pearls.  The little box holds six tea light candles.  I used the frame digi as a template to cut out the viewing hole in the box.
This looks complicated but it's really easy and makes a cute gift.
Happy Tuesday!
