Mojo Card-Gift Combo

Welcome back {smile}.  I have been trying to craft something everyday/night, to build my inventory for the Spring Craft Fair.  I want several different, unique paper crafts.  So, I am trying some new items.  One of which, is my Card-Gift Combo.  I just love this little creation.  You open the box like a book, but a drawer is inside to hold your gift {smile}.  How super sweet, huh?  
So, I have the item I want to create.  But, I need a direction.  Color.  Layout.  Some type of inspiration and direction.  So, what better place to turn, than Mojo Monday .  This week, #333, is a wonderful sketch.  But, now I needed a color scheme or theme. 

here is what I came up with:

I used all current Stampin' Up! products to create this Card-Gift Combo.  So, I opened a package of Watercolor Wonder DSP, and put beautifully soft, pretty, pattern papers:  a green-blue floral, a soft gray polka dot, and green chevron strips.  
The base of this 'card' is made from Pear Pizzazz card stock.  The floral pattern paper is matted onto Island Indigo card stock.  I matted the light gray polka dot pattern paper onto Slate card stock.  I cut a doily out of Pear Pizzazz card stock and then matted a circle of Pear Pizzazz DSP polka dot pattern onto whisper white card stock.  I used pool party seam binding to add some softness to the cover.   I used pool party seam binding, again, to tie the 'box' closed.  I just love the new metallic accented bakers twine, so I tied a bow with the silver accent bakers twine to my front bow.  I'm also a sucker for clay and molds.  So, I used the new buttons and blossoms mold to create my clay blossom.

Thank you for looking.  If you love this paper, just click on my 'Shop 24-7' button, and purchase a package for yourself, along with any other Stampin' Up! products.I will be posting more photos of my Card-Gift Combo soon. 
Yeah, I will be selling these at the Spring Craft Fair.  I want to make more, but with various greetings and salutations.  So, stay posted {smile}.
