Cards and Box

Here are the other two cards I made for my Secret sister and the box I made to put them in. I used images from the same stamp set for both cards.

Papertrey ink -- Meadow greens stamp set (flower and sentiment)
Stickles -- Yellow
Spellbinders -- Classic Ovals and Lacey Ovals dies
Martha Stewart -- Border punch
DCWV -- Old World Paper
Cloud 9 design -- Rain dots

This next one I decided to go for a more masculine feel since I had done 3 more feminine feel.

I stamped the text background first and then stamped the two different fern stamps overlapping them.

Papertrey ink -- Meadow Greens stamps
Inkadinkado -- Text stamp
Spellbinders -- A2 matting basics A and matting basics B sets dies
My sentiments exactly -- Thinking of you set

I have shown this box before I think about a year ago but for those of you new to my blog or had forgotten about it, here is the link to the box I made.  The first time making it I made a template so this time it went a lot faster, so I do encourage you to make a template the first time you make this for future boxes.

Gina K -- Box template (link above)
Best Occasion -- Textured cardstock
DCWV -- Linen Closet paper
Spellbinders -- Font one Upper and lower case and Decorative Labels 28 dies
Offray Ribbon

Here is a side view of the box.

All 4 cards with their dimension fit in there quite well.

We were in the high 50's yesterday, it was just beautiful, then last night some high winds came through, felt like the house was going to blow away, it shredded our grill cover out on the deck, and I woke up to temps in the teens this morning, with wind chills we are close to 0.  I just can't get over this roller coaster we have been on.  I feel so for all those out east and north of us getting slammed with all of this.  Hope your all able to stay warm and safe on the roads.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and leave your comments, it is so appreciated!!

The box is so pretty, Connie! A perfect little box for putting cards in :) And that first card is stunning!

Our weather has been warmer as well, although it's been very cold at night. This week we are supposed to get snow... we shall see though :)

Oh, I love what you did with the flower! Very pretty! And ferns are always a favorite of mine. Very nice the way you stamped the two overlapping and soft. I think I need more fern stamps. The box is great. All together they make a beautiful gift!

What a gorgeous gift set you've created! Love them all : ) We've been having roller coaster weather as well here. Tomorrow they are forecasting more snow... It seems we can't get through a full week without snow lately. Take care, stay warm!

I don't know how I missed these, Connie! They are outstanding! I really like each one and they are so really perfect in color and purpose too! The box for cards is also wonderful and I agree with you on the templates suggestion too!!
