The challenge last week at Stamp With Us was to create something for a birthday- well I made the mini cards, but didn't have anything to put them in until now!!
I decided to have a go at making some 10cm x 10cm cards, as I had seen some on Stamping Caz's blog & had brought some from Craftwork Cards. I had also just got a new set of SU stamps & wanted to try them out.
For the cards I used: Bazzill card stock in lemon, brown & white Swiss dots; SU summer sun & chocolate chip.
Stamps: SU- Flowers from the 'Always in My Thoughts' set; SU 'Yummy' set for the box lid; Hero Arts- Petite Wishes for inside the cards.
Misc: Timber brown Staz on ink; gems, yellow & brown grosgrain ribbon & envelopes, from my stash.
The box template I found on a blog site from EmmaLockley. I actually tweaked the measurements to suit what I needed- but the tutorial she has is so easy to follow. She also has some other great ideas & tutorials- so go over & take a look if you can.
My box will hold 4 cards & envelopes. I'm going to have a go at a note card holder next, but teak it to hold cards & envelopes instead- wish me luck! There is a great tutorial over on Dannies blog - She also has loads of great ideas for different things to make.
Hope you like them.. see you later
