Card Box Holder, Cards, & Envelopes


I created this little set as a thank you gift for a friend. I used the Chloe Marie Daisy D Collection paper & Bazzill bling paper for the holder & cards. I used Georgia Pacific paper from Walmart to make the envelopes.

To make the card box, I followed this awesome tutorial on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. I really cannot get enough of this woman's blog. Her directions are so easy to follow & she is so creative =)

On my box lid, I used the Fiskar's Treading Water Punch along the edges. These punches sold out of my store so fast, but I should have them back in stock very soon =)

My cards are a little different; I made my cards smaller and they are 4x4. I also used Stampendous Dot Sparklers in Silver to accent the beautiful paper. I wanted these notecards to be useful for just about anything and that is why I did not stamp them with a sentiment.


To make the envelopes, I used my Scor-Pal. My envelopes are made out of paper that measures 5 1/4" x 10". I scored the envelopes at 4" and 8 1/4", and also on both sides at 11 1/2" when the paper is flush to the right side of the board. If your cards are a different size, please refer to Scor-Pal Customizing Your Own Envelopes.

Thank you for visiting. Don't forget to enter my contest for blog candy =) A winner will be announced on July 9th, 2008.

Hugs,
