Let the Weekend Begin!

Happy Friday everyone! I'm so glad this week has come to an end. There are only two things I have planned for this weekend: crafting and sleeping! I'm sure I'll get at least one of those two things done!

I think I may be on a roll with this cards-in-a-box thing. I was so pleased with this project, I decided to do it again for Purple Onion Designs and came up with this little set of cards:

For the cards, I stamped the top portion with the filigree corner stamp. I love this stamp! I simply stamped one row, turned the stamp, and stamped another row below it to create my pattern. I added a piece of cardstock that I scalloped with my Threading Water punch, added some great patterned paper and finished it off with the "just a note" stamp.

Although it's hard to see, the box was also stamped with the same flourish stamp. I scalloped the box top and added a band to coordinate with the cards.

Don't cha know I just love pink and brown together??? The best part of this project is the fact that I now have a great little gift ready to go for that last minute teacher/co-worker/neighbor birthday/holiday/occasion. Or maybe I'll keep them for myself...for no special occasion at all!

Have a great weekend! Any big plans for you and yours?!?

Stamps: Filigree corner, Script Hello set (Purple Onion Designs)
Ink: Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate (PTI)
Cardstock: SS White and Spring Moss (PTI), pink (Bazzil)
Patterned Paper: Creative Imaginations
Tools: Threading Water punch (Fiskars), circle punches (SU!)

Sounds like a great weekend you have planned. Super cute card and box, pink and brown might just be the most perfect combo on earth. I have to clean the house for my son's birthday party. Not as much fun as resting and crafting. Oh well! LOL! Have a super weekend. -Molly B

Aloha Jennifer! When are you going to share how to make the box? Such a great gift idea! This weekend I am going to the beach and probably going on a whale watch. I would also like to do a little crafting as I haven't even broke into my new PTI sets.

Just love your card and box set. The color combos are one of my favorites too! I was wondering if you would share the directions on the box.

You're killing me because those boxes are so beautiful and I can't for the life of me figure out how to make them! You are brilliant. I'm going to keep buttering you up until you do a tutorial. heehee
