Good morning all! How is everyone’s weekend so far? Mine has been great! I finished the Wedding invites, made a few boxes, saw my friend Carol and then went to the city with my daughter to see my friends that are in town from Missouri. Angie, Katey, Dawn, Mackenzie, Kim, Taylor and I all went to Central Park and then just hung out at the apartment and laughed and talked. It was so good to see everyone and I hope to go and see them soon. 🙂
Today’s project was made for my friend Carol to give to our friends Cathy & Paul for their Anniversary. It consists of a box and card. The box is made with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. The top is Pool Party and the bottom is Crumb Cake. I adhered a photo of the lovely couple with SNAIL and used my Paper Cutter to cut out the Crumb Cake frame around the photo. The images are from the Happy Hour Stamp Set and are stamped in Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Island Indigo and cut out with my Paper Snips. The top greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Calypso Coral and punched out with the Large Oval Punch. I took a thin strip of Pool Party and flagged the ends and mounted it behind the oval for a little more interest. For the lower greeting I used the Memorable Moments Stamp Set and stamped it in Island Indigo and punched that out with the Extra Large Oval Punch. Three Basic Jewels Rhinestones complete the box and give it a little bling!
The card is made using the Note Cards & Envelopes Pack. The card is 3 1/2″ x 5″. I embossed some Island Indigo with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front on top of a piece of Crumb Cake. The two champagne glasses are from the Embellished Events Stamp Set and are stamped in Pool Party and cut out with my Paper Snips. I added some more Basic Jewels Rhinestones to the bubbles and adhered them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and is stamped in Calypso Coral. I used the Word WIndow Punch to punch it out and then a piece of Calypso Coral, punched out with the Modern Label Punch, is placed behind it. I really like the project and love that it all coordinates even though it’s different stamp sets. I hope that you enjoyed today’s project and that you are inspired to make some boxes! Thank you so much for stopping by and have an awesome day!
Happy Anniversary Cathy & Paul!
