Boxed note cards

This is a quick set of CAS embossed note cards in a box to give away.  I'm trying to have a few things done ahead so that when I need a gift, I have it.  I thought this would be a good one.  I hope to do some craft shows eventually and this would be a good item for that, too, I think.

challenges...
Cuttlebug Spot - "box it"
clean & simple 175 - sketch
BBTB2 - Dimensional flower

The box is the crayon box from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More cut at 8 1/4" I think.  It fit on a 12x12 sheet.  The swirl is from HA.  The flower is from April Showers cut 4 sizes.  The dsp is Fancy Pants, I think.  Basic Grey brads for the latch.


I used Glossy Accents for some shine and dimension.

Four cards and envies fit inside.

This was such a great sketch!!

All stamps were from Inkadinkado.  Divine Swirls embossing folder. 

Stars embossing folder. 

Perfect Paisley embossing folder.  Silk flowers from my stash.

Swiss Dots embossing folder.


And today is January 31!!  Supposed to be winter!  Our kids are taking ski lessons!  I live in upstate NY!!   This temperature is terrible!!!  I WANT SOME REAL WINTER!!!!!!  (the snow was soooooo sticky today!!)


Thanks for stopping by!!!!
