Whimsy Christmas Note Card Box


I have another Whimsy Stamps DT project to share this week.

Lately, I've been in the mood of making something different, not just cards.
So this time I wanted to make another note card box, but different from the one I recently made. I looked for a good tutorial and I found a fabulous one by Gio.

All the stamps I used here are from the Peace on Earth set designed by Crissy Armstrong.

I used two papers from the beautiful Whimsy Stamps, Very Merry pack. I used one of my border punches. Distressed the papers and put some golden glitter glue. The buttons are from stash.

I coloured the image with watercolour pencils and I used my Nestabilities, Classic Scalloped Ovals large dies.

I made four 3x3 cards in two designs. I used white cardstock for the base (for both the box and the cards).

They fit perfectly into the box.

This is what two of the cards look like, I used one of the Very Merry papers I used for the top of the box so that the cards and the box would match. The baige ribbon is from stash.

This is one of the sentiments from the Peace on Earth set, again I used my Nestabilities dies and golden glitter glue.

This is what the other two cards look like. Again, I used the other one of the two Very Merry papers I used for the top of the box. The red ribbon is from stash.

And this is another sentiment from the Peace on Earth set and like for the other cards I used my nesties and golden glitter glue.

These are all of the cards. I eventually made two more, but took the photos before that.

I just added a ribbon, I chose one that would match the bow in the gorgeous image on the top - red, with golden (yellowish) edges.

I'm entering:
