Kindness Card & Gift Box

Well I'm waiting on new Stampin' Up goodies to be delivered, I thought I would play with a stamp set that hasn't seen ink in a while. So I took out the stamp set Simply Said (such a great set) and decided to pair it with one of the sneak peek sets I did get, Heard from the Heart. I thought that the saying from this set was perfect to use with the heart from Simply Said.
The card measures 4 1/4"x 4 1/4" with an 1 1/4" cut off from the bottom front then I added a scalloped edge. The box I made from measuring a small box I found at Micheal's in the dollar bin, it measures 2 3/4"x 1 1/2". I stamped the heart words in black, then cut & embossed using a square nestabilities die. Then stamped the center heart in Pink Pirouette and the flowers on top in Pretty in Pink, then added Dazzling Diamonds and pop dots. Its hard to see in the pictures, but the Kraft paper has flowers stamped in Versa Mark for a back ground and on both the inside and outside of the box I stamped flowers as well.


I love little boxes with secret messages inside.
This would be a nice way of saying thank you to someone!
Supplies: Simply Said, Heard from the Heart, Ribbon, Scalloped border punch, Large oval punch, Designer label punch, Nestabilities, Versa Mark ink, Pop dots, Tacky tape. Colors: Kraft, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White.
