Pink Manhatten Floral Impression

Got this Big Shot Floral Textured plate with my pre-order last week and have been "playing" with it (see pg 202 SU main catalog). This plate works exactly the same as the Cuttlebug embossing dies but this specific floral can only be ordered through SU - there's a matching stamp set (see pg 106 Fifth Avenue Floral). This is very delicate and feminine project. The Big Shot matchbox die is also a SU exclusive - it is way cool to not only cut quickly - the score lines are also sooooo great to have! The Floral texture plate was also used for the matchbox cover. Those labels and the butterfly: yes, they are all part of the Matchbox die set available to order from the Occasions Catalog that starts April 1!

Below card using items from the Occasions Catalog, The Great Friend stamp set has the butterfly (cut and fold in half for that 3-D effect and prop on a dimensional) and the "for you" along with the leaves used on the tag. Those rhinestone brads: from the Pretties kit.

Below matchbox top view.

Blurry view (sooooo sorry!) of the box with a bead pull (from the Pretties kit) attached with a glue dot

Bottom inside matchbox is lined with scrap of Pink Pirouette Designer Paper.

Another blurry photo (sorry): Underside of the matchbox: there are 4 clear beads for "feet": from the Pretties Kit attached using glue dots

So nice Patti! I might have to case this for my month club so quick which I preferred.
