Yesterday was a public holiday here in Canberra, and was also my lovely sister’s birthday. She was very, very lucky because I used some of my new goodies from the Autumn / Winter catalogue to make her card and gift box.
This first box is one I made for the gift from my Mum to my sister, and it matches the Tri-Shutter card from this post. It uses Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red cardstock and inks, as well as Kiwi Kiss Ink, and features A Rose is a Rose Stamp Set. The ribbons are not Stampin’ Up! but are from my large stash!
The second box I made to hold a photo frame. The frame was from one of the $2 shops and cost me…. $2! But shhhhhh don’t tell my sister that. I have used the Planter Box Rub-ons to decorate it and am quite pleased with how it came out. I did try to take a photo of it out of the box but it didn’t turn out very well, but you get the idea.
And the box is made from Orchid Opulence cardstock for the base, clear acetate for the lid, and the belly band is made from the absolutely divine Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper. I have also used the Cottage Garden Stamp Set for the three little flowers that decorate it. And don’t forget, you can order these both from 1st April, although personally, I don’t know how you can stand to wait that long! 🙂
There is a matching card to go with this box as well, but I thought I might keep you in suspense a little and save it until tomorrow!!
So until then, happy stamping,
