Mini Milk Carton

Poppy Parade is a red that I'm slowly getting used to.   There's something about it that's a bit garish when I see it next to Real Red & Cherry Cobbler.  Yet, on it's own, it's very pretty. 
This is a smaller-than-usual card using the vase of flowers from Button Buddies.  Our buttons are designed to coordinate with this set and the little flower ones from the Brights collection are perfect.  Everyday Enchantment was used to make the narrow border on the bottom of the card and the 2 1/2" circle behind the vase.  Pool Party ruffled ribbon completes the look.

The Mini Milk Carton is made using the die by the same name for the Big Shot.  This looks complicated, but it's super easy and you only need a small amount of Sticky Strip to hold it together.  The tag is from SU some years back.  I didn't stamp directly onto it because the metal edge makes it a bit touch and go to get a good finish so I stamped onto Very Vanilla, punched it out and stuck it on with snail.  The Trio Flower Punch (R) was used with Calypso Coral and Pool Party and tiny pearls from our Basic Jewels are the centres.
Happy Tuesday.
