Anything but a Card!

This week's Challenge over at Late Night Stampers is "Anything but a Card" which is a toughie for me! I did come up with this cute Easter project using the new Milk Carton Die from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

My Milk Carton is cut out of So Saffron cardstock using the Big Shot and Stampin' Up! Mini Milk Carton Die . I stamped my image from A Flower for All Seasons in Jet Black Stazon on Watercolor Paper and then colored it with my ink pads and Aquapainter.

I created my paper rose by using a quilling technique on a 1/2" by 12" piece of So Saffron. YOu can see my YouTube video tutorial for making these roses here. The Stem is rolled Old Olive cardstock and the grass was created by running strips of Old Olive cardstock through my Stampin' Up! crimper.

I finished it off by stamping my Happy Easter sentiment in Old Olive on textured Very Vanilla cardstock, creating a banner end and adding a Playground button tied with a sliver of So Saffron cardstock. A Mini Library Clip finished it off!

Thanks for looking! I'd love your comments!

Darling! I love the milk carton as a flower vase, it's so bright and cheery! HOW did you get the mini library clip to hold the carton together? I can't get mine to spread far enough apart to grasp the milk carton.
