Sakura Cards - white and bright

I love finding inspiration in unexpected places.

My latest set of cards is a recycled, or up-cycled, project using yet another lovely tissue box.
This one is a Royale box in deep fuchsia featuring beautiful sakura blossoms painted on a somewhat abstract background.

I kept these first two cards simple with minimal accents and a bright white base.

I started by stamping  random splashes across the bottom right corner of the card base. Then atatched a few strips of washi tape, some wire paper and in the middle a cut out  of my tissue box that has been mounted with foam tape.
The greeting was cut from black paper and several little rhinestones were added randomly to the card for a little bling.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections white and black
Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge - SU
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Rose Red, pear Pizzazz - SU
Dies: Greetings Thinlits - SU, Circle Framelits - SU
Designer paper: Royale tissue box
Misc.: foam mounting squares/tape, little rhinestones, green paper wire, washi tape

For this card I kept the shape of the tissue box piece rectangular. It was mounted on some spring green cardstock and attached to the card front with foam tape. Little flags were added to one side. these were created with the banner punch. For the larger flags the paper (and tissue box scraps) were cut to strips and then one end inserted into the punch to cut the tail
The regretting was cut form black and added vertically. For a final touch the flower centers have been accented with rhinestones as well as  small trio of stones was added to the top of the banner row.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections white and black, Bazzill green and pale pink
Dies: Greetings Thinlits - SU
Punch: banner - SU
Designer paper: Royale tissue box
Misc.: foam mounting squares/tape, little rhinestones
