Box of cards


I hope you are having a good evening!
Tonight I wanted to share with you my Blast from the Past challenge for this week.

This week I chose to revisit Gina K's 'Box of Gift Cards' videos which you can find here and here. Mother's Day is right around the corner and I thought this box of cards would make a nice Mother's Day gift.
I decorated the clear box with a belly band, a ribbon, felt flowers with corduroy brads in the center and leaf branches. I used the 'For You' stamp from Gina K's new Masculine Messages stamp set and punched it out with a spellbinders tag.

I chose to use colors that would be neutral for man or woman. There are six cards in the box so I kept the layout fairly simple and used it on all six cards.
This is the sketch I used for all 6 cards.
Th pattern papers are all SU. I have a ton of retired SU papers so making this box of gift cards gave me a chance to use some of those papers. I also used SU Soft Sky and Gina K's White and Chocolate Brown pl papers.
All the sentiments are from Gina k's Inside and Out stamp set which I felt was perfect for these cards. I used the 'Happy Birthday', 'Thank You' and 'Congratulations' on the outside of the cards and the coordinating sentiment on the inside.
This is the inside of one of the cards. I finished off all of them the same way.

I would love for you to join me for this weeks challenge. If you do, please be sure to add your project to the Stamp TV gallery using tag STVBPSLS09 so you are entered in the drawing for a free stamp set!
