Hi To All! Just want you to know that this photograph is really, really not a good one...In person or IRL...it is soo much prettier. I call this my "Gift Box" and I plan on putting a candle in it when I use it to give to someone...I made this out of "pure scratch"...I have never made a box before and I was really pleased with this one. It took a few times for me to get it just right, but eventually I did get it right. I used 12x12 cardstock in royal blue from Hobby Lobby...scored it and folded and then used 'very tacky glue strips' to adhere the box together. I did the same top as I did the bottom. The DP paper is from Michael's. I used my Rectangle Scalloped Nestablities and the Rectangle Regular Nestabilities. I then heat embossed the Berries from ArtfulInkables new "Berry Picking" stamps. I lastly added a beaded trim that I have had in my stash forever and the ribbon came from Hobby Lobby...added a pearl to the middle of the ribbon and whallah!
You have got to love this "Berry Picking" set from ArtfulINKables...I have two more cards that I have made with this set and will show you these in the future...for now, though...I am excited to say that this month I will be making cards and "stuff" from Kristin's PRECIOUS "Critter Country" and "Deer Friends." I am so excited to begin playing with these stamps...they are just too darn cute! Gotta add another statement...All of my followers have made me feel like a million dollars with your sweet and wonderful comments...To think that I have inspired you has made me just tooooo stinkin proud of myself. Thanks times ten to all of you for your comments !
Oh, and I think you can click on the pics to see a better close up.
Hope You all have a wonderful weekend...I hope I will be stampin :)
