Greeting Card Gift Box

I used the wonderful tutorial that Gina did on her site for creating this gift box.  You can find the video tutorial HERE at Stamp TV. 

You have allready seen the cards I made for my secret sister  reveal at church, this is the box I made for all 4 cards to fit in.

DCWV-- Rustic stack paper
Sweet Sentiments from Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine, I did a little bit of sponging around the edges, it looks a little more pink then it did in real life.
Martha Stewart-- Swirling Lace punch (added Distress ink in Antique linen to it)
Momenta-- Metal bee  (they own a honey making business)

Thought I would show a side view of it too.  I might have been able to squeeze one more card w/envelope inside but I think 4 cards w/ envelopes is about the right amount, they can't be too bulky though.  I like to give away cards that the giver only has to use one stamp to mail it, so this is the perfect little gift box size.

Well today is my birthday and I thought it was going to be sunny and in the high 50's, but I think that will be something if we get there, it is after 11am and it is 38 and light snow showers right now.  But I received a nice call from my daughter this morning and she is all excited for me to get my card, so I hope it comes today :)  God has blessed me with a wonderful and loving family and a terrific church family, and that I am very thankful for.

Wishing you a Wonderful day, Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
