Handmade boxes are the best because you can customize them to just about any size you need. And, with all the fabulous Designer Series Papers Stampin’ Up has – you can’t go wrong!
I made this darling 3 x 3 box with a peachy top –
With an adorable tag to match –
I started with a Very Vanilla base of 7 x 7. Scored at 2 inches on all four sides. Make cuts and assemble, creating a basic open box.
The lid is (just retired) Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper cut at 6 x 6.
It is has two scores lines on all four sides. To make a snug fit on the lid, whatever your base is made of, take a straight scrap of the same card stock, fold it in half and place it on the left side of your Simply Scored to move the paper slightly away from the left side. Score at 1/2, and 1 1/2. You will cut away a few of the extra pieces, making this also a basic ‘box’ that is used as the lid.
I decorated the box when it was done! I cut a couple of peaches from the paper and stamped the perfect image from Beautiful Bouquet!
I have created lots of different cards for Mother’s Day. I was thinking…..another one??
Well, after reading of some of my team members situations of loosing their own moms, I let that be my inspiration –
‘Mother in my heart’ – I thought was appropriate for the situation. And, simply done with the Labeler Alphabet!
Hard to see in both photos, but, the sentiment is framed with a scalloped piece of Copper Foil! It goes really nicely with all the shades of pink here. The card base is Blushing Bride, layered with the embossed Pink Pirouette. So pretty!
Stamp Set – Labeler Alphabet
Framelits – Layering Squares, Stitched Shapes
Card Stock – Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Challenge #319. Optional Theme : Circle or Oval card
How cool is this?!?! We don’t create shaped cards too often these days, so this is refreshing!
I went with a lovely floral-ish card –
I think this is just soo sweet! My mom will love it! I loved the sparkly strip from the glimmer paper myself.
This pattern from the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper is cool in that you can actually use the coordinating framelits to cut out the preprinted flowers in the paper!!!! So, that’s what I did. Hah, minimal stamping!
Both the framelits and the stamp set are retiring. However, they are on SALE which makes it really nice on the pocketbook. The framelits are only $16.50 (regularly $33!) and the stamp set, Oh So Succulent, is $15.75 (regularly $21!). Did I mention the paper is on sale too? What a bargain!!!
I hope I have inspired you with my round card! You can see the other Design Team cards on the blog or our Facebook page. You can also link up a card in either place too! Come join us! It’s fun!
