Card In a Box Class

Hey Everyone

I’ve been a bit quiet here for a about a week now as I have just attended Stampin’ Up!s South Pacific Annual Convention.  I’ve had a total ball and am completely beside myself because I’m soooooo tired.  I’m in desperate need of a sleep in.

The projects I’m sharing today are from a class that I held just before I came to convention.  My class girls requested a card in a box – hmmmmm.  I am yet to make one mainly because I’m not a fan of 3D stuff but succumbed because they really wanted it.  Here’s the link to the youtube video I followed to get the measurements for my card.  We also made a matching gift bag that we created out of an envelope.

Here’s a close up of the card in a box.

This is a photo of the card when it’s close flat.  I played with this for ages to try and get it as pretty closed as what it is when it’s opened.

And finally, one of the gift bag.

Mojo Monday #308, Create with Connie & Mary #266 & Stampin’ Royalty #191

Hey Everyone

I’ve managed to combine three challenges for my card today.  The sketch challenge at Mojo Monday, the colour challenge at Create with Connie & Mary and Stampin’ Royalty’s challenge is to create a project using circles.  Here are their inspiration pics:

I pulled out one of my favourite retired Stampin’ Up! sets called French Foliage.  You may be wondering where the Tangerine Tango is from Create with Connie & Mary’s colour challenge.  It’s there – I managed to sneak it in as sponging on my leaves to give them a more authentic leafy look.  The designer series paper I’ve used is from Eastern Elegance and the sentiment is from Express Yourself.  The ribbon I’ve used is a retired Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon – it’s amazing how many retired ribbons I’ve found when I went looking for this one.  Here’s my card:
