One of my sister's is having a birthday in the next few days. We are having the family party tomorrow evening so I had to come up with a card for her somehow I got off an a completely different track and ended up making a very cute little gift card box instead. LOL. Thankfully, I had already decided to get her a gift card so I didn't have to rethink my gift since I had already sent my hubby out for it since I am still not particularly mobile due to my ankle. The colors in this picture are a bit off trust me everything matches.
I bought a new Sizzix die this week called Scoreboard XL die Business Card box and decided to pull it out of the package! I discovered that this die works best with thicker paper I'd say 100lb or thicker, of course, I did not have any handy except boring old white so I glued to sheets of 65lb together. The patterned paper is by DCWV and is from an old 8x8 pack the inside of the box is Coredinations cardstock. I decorated the front of the box with a small frame from the Just Rite Stampers set "You Inspire Me". The inside sentiment is from the same set. I pulled out another new Sizzix die as well for this project the 3D Flower die. I used it to cut some wool felt to make a rolled rose. Love how that turned out! I could not find my velcro to use as a fastener for the box so settled for some ribbon from my stash. Thanks for stopping by!
I own Crafty Capers, a rubber stamp store, located in Nanaimo BC. I started stamping after one of my sisters bought me some stamps and inks for a Christmas present about 20 years ago. I have been hooked ever since!
