Hostess Gift - Secret Garden

Wow, the weekend absolutely flew past!
I spent a really great couple of hours on Saturday at a party hosted by Lesley, a very lovely and talented lady who is always so gracious in welcoming me to her beautiful home.

I decided to make Lesley a hostess gift using the Envelope Punch Board. I take absolutely no credit for the box idea, there are lots of variations and videos on the internet showing how to create boxes of varying shapes and sizes using the board.

I prepared a matching card to go with the box, which I presented to Lesley as a thank you for hosting the party.

Thank you to the very appreciative group of ladies who attended, I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Supplies used:
Stamps - Secret Garden, Hardwood
Punches - Scalloped Top Tag Punch
Thinlits - Hexagon Hive, Secret Garden
Colours - Elegant Eggplant, Pistachio Pudding, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Whisper White


  1. Wow! The card and box are gorgeous! I love the colour combinations, I wish I had some spare money to get the new In Colors inks & card, I will have to see what I have left when the next pay packet comes in!

    1. Thanks Sophia. Hope you're nicely settled in to your new home now and hope to see you again soon. x

  2. Streuth! Did you have two SU parties with someone called Lesley, Nikki? Surely you are not "talking" about me in this post! I loved the card and I loved the box and I am oh so grateful to you for your wonderful demonstration and our fabulous make and takes. I had a great time too, Nikki! And I know all the girlies who came did too! Thank you. Hugs, Lesley

    1. You're very welcome Lesley. Having an appreciative audience always makes it an absolute pleasure :-)
