Box Tops


Hi Everyone!

Hope you have had a great week. I am here to share a couple of things I've made over the last couple of days. As you can see, they are a bit larger than a card and that's because these are actually the tops to some A2 card boxes that I am making for the craft fair. Obviously I had to scan them before I put them together. This first box uses the Tuesday Morning Sketch this week. I used a blue that is from SU, but I'm not sure what it is. It isn't Brocade Blue, or maybe it is...Anyhow I also used Really Rust, Mellow Moss and Bordering Blue. The image in the middle is from "Lovely as a Tree" I colored it with SU markers. I used the Swirls CB embossing folder on the Mellow Moss piece and that was it.
The second box top is for this Tuesday's MMSC. I really wanted to use the sentiment from SU's Echoes of Kindness, so this box is vertical instead of looking at it horizontally. The top is Pink Pirouette and the pattern paper strips are from Prima Marketing Sasha Paper Collection. I also used the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the white piece even though it's a bit hard to see. So, I made two more boxes and now I have one more to do. I'm also going to do some mother's day cards. So, that's all for me today. Have a great weekend!

Very pretty pastel papers on your card for the MMSC. The buttons are a nice touch. I love that sentiment, so very true. We are so happy that you shared your card with us for the MMSC this week.
