Gift Box with Cards

Today I finished making this gift box with four cards and handmade envelopes for a friend/customer, she wasn't able to make it to my last stamp camp, but still wanted the projects. The cards are all 4"x 4" and I used the Summer Picnic designer paper on each one, including the envelopes that I made and the card box. All of the images have been colored using Copic markers and then cut and embossed using my Nestabilities. The envelopes were made the same way I made this envelope from a previous post and I added a scalloped edge and seal on the back of a few of them to pretty them up. After making the cards, I really wanted a box to put them all in, so after looking on Splitcoast I found Cindy's tutorial on this CD holder and just changed up the measurements so it could accommodate my four cards and envelopes. This gift box and card set would make a great little Christmas gift for someone special.


















Supplies: A Flower for All Seasons, Best Yet (Hostess set), Sincere Salutations, Thank You Kindly, Circle of Friendship, Summer Picnic designer paper, Ribbon, Brads, Copic markers, Nestabilites, Scalloped border punch, Circle punches, Scalloped circle punch, Photo corner punch, Large oval punch, Word Window punch, Corner rounder punch, Piercer w/mat, Pop dots, Tacky tape, Velcro. Colors: Old Olive, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Summer Sun, Whisper White.

Boy I used a whole lot of punches on this!



I'm looking forward to this holiday weekend, I'll be spending it with my family. Sunday were having a fun barbecue with some family and friends, the weather is suppose to be wonderful so all of us can enjoy our patio and hot tub.
I hope you all have a fantastic holiday weekend!
