Mother's Day Card and Gift Card Box Set

Hi Lori Whitlock Fans:
Anita here with a pretty card which was so easy t make and a gift card box.  It's time to start thinking about those Mother's in our lives.  I am impressed and amazed every day by the strength, humor and resilience that I see in the mothers around me.  For this set I used several different files.  The card is part of Lori's Center Box Card series and it is called Center Box Card Mother Flowers and you can find it here in her store along with a tutorial to put it together and here in the Silhouette store.  I am in love with the soft sweet colors in Lori's new Echo Park line called Sweet Baby Girl. I used some pearls for the flower centers and some twine to finish off my card.  
The box is called Gift Card Wrap Box and is simple to put together.  You can find that file here in Lori's shop and there is a tutorial there as well.  You can find it also in the Silhouette Store.  I didn't want my box to have the same sentiment so I used the sentiment from the A2 Tea Shaped Box Card  Teapot which you can find here in Lori's store and here in the Silhouette store.  
Here is a photo of the card folded flat.  It folds into a 5 1/2" X 6 1.4" almost square.
Here are the box pieces.
Finally, here is the completed box.
That's it for me.  See you soon and enjoy your week.

April Lori Whitlock Creative Team Blog Hop

Hi Lori Whitlock Peeps:
Welcome to the April Creative Team Blog Hop.  You should have come here from the lovely and talented Kathy Skou's blog and next you will be going to the awesome  Brandie's blog.  If you didn't get here in that way you can start at the beginning at Lori's blog.

I used Lori's brand new Echo Park Collection called Wish Upon a Star and I used so many of the wonderful embellishments that are part of this fabulous line.  I used Lori's cut file called Shadowbox Frame 8X8 and you can find it here in Lori's store and here in the Silhouette Store.  Lori has a fabulous tutorial on her blog for putting together the 5X7 frame and I watched that while putting my box together.  You can find the video here, it is called 5X7 Shadowbox Frame under the tutorial section.  You should always check to see if there is a video tutorial as it makes everything so much easier.
