At the blog hop, I mentioned that I stamped everything on Champagne cardstock. The colors of the stamped images were muted because of that -- champagne is a darker base.
I want to show you how the colors would look if I had stamped on Colonial White (left project). As you see in the pictures, there is a difference in the flowers and leaves.
The moral of this "story"? Don't be afraid to change your base color to modify the mood of your image and message. :)

What sizes did I use for cutting on the Artiste Cricut Cartridge? All three images can be found on page 74 or C4R5 (column 4 row 5).
Lid: <Card> 3.25" Champagne cardstock; 3" Claire B&T paper
Sides of box (not shown): <3D Object> and <3D Object><shift> 1.5" for a 2.5"x 2.5" box
Saying (right box): 0.75" <happy mother's day>
I could have used Art Philosophy to cut the leaves out, but thought it would be faster not to. Also, the leaves are stamped overlapped and were cut out as one image. You could get even more technical and mask the upper leave. :)
