Card Box





Here is another one of those projects I love to make! This is that other template I bought from Paper Trey created by Lauren Meader. Very cool and the template worked perfect. This one is big enough to hold A2 sized cards on each side plus envelopes. I made one card to match to show you how it fits.

The paper is from last year's Stampin' Up collection, I was saving it for special use - and then forgot I had it! I always tend to want to "save" my pretty paper which makes no sense because there is always new pretty paper coming out. The base is more mustard and chocolate chip. Of course I had to use one of my new Magnolia stamps, this Tilda has the cutest little outfit and hair style. I used 3 different Nestabilities shapes under her with alternating patterns of the paper. If you have any questions about this please let me know!
