8 Cards with Gift Box 031616

This was a gift I made of 8 various type of cards with envelops in a box. The box was made with the We Are Memory Keepers, envelop maker and a piece of DCWV pattern paper. I hope you like this project.

I used a doily and a canvas sticker to decorate the box, and cut a slit to feed some ribbon through for the closure. At the bottom, I will leave a link to Jennifer McGuire's blog where she has a tutorial on how to make the box.

This card uses SSS light bulb stamp set and yellow washi tape on the sides.

On this card I cut an embossed cupcake panel in half and lightly inked it with a teal ink pad. I used washi tape to soften the middle and stamped a sentiment on a die cut.

This is a birthday flip-it card made with Stephanie Barnard's die cuts. Cutting some colorful striped pattern paper and I colored a stamped image with my alcohol markers.

I added a flap to have room to write a message to the recipient in the inside and used an edge punch from Stamping Up. I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the flip.

This Hello card background was made with a Faber Castell Gelatos kit. I used a wood veneer to deboss the talk bubble and impress the yellow ink. Another technic I learned from Jennifer McGuire. I then glued the little man wood veneer. 

This one I kept simple. Stamped stars on a green pattern paper piece and glued it to the card base which was inked with distress ink. I glued the sentiment on the middle of the card.

On this card I used a strip of left over embossed and inked paper and glued it to the bottom. I colored and fuzzy cut the butterfly stamp. I used my cloud corner rounders to cut the card base and stamped the sentiment on it.

This card I used star pattern paper. I then stamped the sentiment twice on white card stock and fuzzy cut one using dimentionals to give it an extra "pow!"

This last card I used a die cut to cut the patter paper. I stamped the sentiment in white card stock and did selective inking with different color inks to give it more interest. I also used my Tim Holtz's marker spritzer to get some extra color on the card base.

Here is the link to Jennifer McGuire's blog where she made the box as mentioned above.
