Summer has passed in the blink of an eye and it's time for a look at the August edition of My Greeting Box. This is one of our favourite themes yet! Ready to get stuck in? Keep reading to find out more about what's inside this month's box.
For this month's box, we've got another watercolour theme, focusing on our Dancing Ladies. Every edition of My Greeting Box comes with everything you could possibly need to make the designs included, as well as a jam-packed starter kit with your first box, too.
In the box, you'll find enough card blanks to make five cards. This month, we've included some stunning purple card and deep purple envelopes for your designs, alongside pressed watercolour card that's perfect for use with the watercolour techniques. We've also included a set of protective clear pouches for you to keep your finished designs safe and sound until you're ready to give them to your loved ones.
Our stamps this month feature some very elegant ladies and an array of sentiments to ensure your cards are fit for any occasion. This month's stamp set includes messages for birthdays, congratulations, sympathies and more. The water-resistant ink pad in the August box is specially selected to complement the watercolour techniques, ensuring your designs are as beautiful as can be with no smudges in sight!
Remember to check out our blog post full of alternative ways to use your stamps for some top tips on taking them further than cards!
For your watercolour adventures, we've popped in five vibrant colours of gauche paint. These can be mixed to get different shades and give a stunning watercolour effect. In the box, you'll also find a small watercolour palette and brush to get started with. An unusual addition for this month is the addition of Post It notes, but these come in super handy for masking when using a watercolour technique!
The finished designs are really quite beautiful, with vibrant colours and graceful illustrations. We've got three designs to try your hand at in this box, but as always we've included plenty of spares for you to get creative with, or make multiples! There are cards perfect for every occasion, and they make such thoughtful gifts for your friends and family.
