I am loving all the new products in the Sale-a-Bration catalogue. I am especially loving the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper (Which of course is free with every $90 purchase).
A couple of years ago I did a note card box with a set of note cards, So today I have decided to revisit that idea by doing a card box with a set of cards.
Here is the link to the original tutorial.
When I put mine together I actually cut the inside of the box too long so it ended up being 6 3/4" long finished instead of 6" like the tutorial. I'm glad I accidentally did this though because it allowed me to create a longer card (so they are more like a card then a note card).
The finished card sizes are 6" x 3 1/2".
Here is the card box. I used a bit of Crisp Cantaloupe ruffle stretched trim as the closure for my box.
I also decorated the inside of the box for a bit of interest.
The first card I did I made to match the box. I love love love this pattern, I love how well it goes with Crisp Cantaloupe.
The second card I did I made using another one of the freebies from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue. The Banner Blast Stamp Set. I had this idea from when I first seen the stamp set, I just stamped the patterned banners in co-coordinating colours and then stamped the Hi banner in Versamark ink and embossed this in gold.
and the last card I have to share with you is using a DSP pattern which I found very hard to use. I found that if you use this pattern with black card stock only it really brings it out and makes it usable. I also added some sequins from the new Occasions catalogue to give it a bit of bling!.
As there are no envelope sizes on the punch board which would fit the inside of the card box, I decided to create a custom envelope for each card in coordinating card stock. This took me a bit of thinking so I have done a tutorial for you.
I hope you have enjoyed all of my creations now hop on over to Annette's Blog where I'm sure she will have some lovely creations for you too.
