Good Thoughts

Just got my new Thinlits Label Dies from Stampin' Up! Using them was like cutting butter; I can't wait to order the other set. This card was made using SUO products (of course).  I am entering it into the "Just Add Ink" JAI#177 Colour Challenge: Smoky Slate, Soft Sky,  Calypso Coral.  Stamps: Too Kind; Nature Walk; Embossing Folder: Lacy Brocade. I also used a tiny brad from the Subtles collection.

Post Cards

Decorated Box (Closed)
Add caption
Box - Complete - Undecorated
Box - Assembled
Box - Scored.
This box is for Inspiration Challenge 401 - Michele Varian.  I was inspired by the Wooden Postcards found HERE.  I just ordered and received this Post Card stamp from Stampin' Up! and thought it to be perfect for this project.

Here is the box decorated and open.  I made extra Post Cards to go inside but I am not finished.  I will probably give this to my sister-in-law who is in Germany.  Maybe she will drop us an occasional line so that we will know what she is up to.

This is the box, closed, completed, and undecorated. All supplies are from Stampin' Up!
  • Ink: Cherry Cobbler
  • Card Stock: Cherry Cobbler, Naturals Ivory
  • Ribbon: Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding
  • Brads: Regals (Cherry Cobbler)
  • Stamps: Post Card; Designer Typeset Photopolymer

Assemble the box using strong adhesive.

This is what the completed, undecorated box looks like open.

  • 8 1/2" x 11" Card Stock
  • Score at 1", 5", 6", and 10"
  • Turn once and score 1" on each of the remaining ends (box will have a one-inch scored border all around)
  • On the long side, cut on score lines up to the score line.
