Thank you each and every one is so special to me 😀😀😀 and to receive cards right up to last week was amazing ! 

For this month's class we created a planter box card . I gave my ladies two options , they could choose to create the one with " grass " or take the pieces of Emerald envy home and create their own choice of leaves. I cased this design from Linda Bauwin here http://stampingwithlinda.typepad.com/stamping_with_linda/2015/03/flower-pot-creative-fold.html
I changed the measurements to create a shorter box and added different flowers using Flower Shop  Petite Petals , Pot Pourri  stamp sets and matching punches and used all of the new in colours to create this card which folds for mailing .
I was inspired by a card I saw created by Bronwyn Eastley at https://www.bloglovin.com/blogs/addinktive-designs-2395857

I did not purchase the tutorial though , preferring to figure it out my self . For the box with the fern leaves I found I needed to add some strips of window sheet to support the leaves .







The next card is a case and I'm so sorry I cannot find the original photo so if this is your creation thankyou so much and please let me know so that I may give you credit for this beautiful design .
It was very simply created using Love and Affection stamp set and gold embossing powder but the effect is amazing with the added touch of gold satin ribbon .



It was interesting to watch each lady' s take on this technique , some loved it and some were way out of their comfort zone without a card to copy from - all of the designs were different and not necessarily ones I had used for my display . 😀😀😀
