A card in the post or a hand written note is such a joy to receive don't you think? Even with the instant connectivity of the internet there is nothing like a card arriving and knowing that someone has taken the trouble to put pen to paper, and posted it to you. This has inspired my project today. Its a pretty gift box to hold cards. Its an easy make, made using the envelope punch board. I made it to fit standard size cards and envelopes just because that's the size I make most often.
See here for how I made them
The materials I have used are:
Designer Series Paper Stack in Subtles. (Patterned paper) 9.5 x 9.5 inches
Scrap of Whisper White card stock for sentiment.
Scrap of matching card stock in Blushing Bride or Pool Party
Blushing Bride Ribbon or Vanilla Satin Ribbon
Inks in Blushing Bride or Pool Party.
Adhesive-Tombow or Tear n Tape
The tools used are :
Envelope Punch Board
Stitched Shape Framelit Oval
Suite Sentiments Stamp Set
I have a special friend who is so kind and giving. She has a lot of penfriends so one of these gift boxes will be going to her filled with a selection of my hand made cards. If you are interested in learning how to make cards do get in contact. I run classes suitable for beginners through to advanced crafters. I'm also happy to do a one to one to get you started if you'd like. There really is nothing like a hand made card popping through the letter box. So if you'd like to spread a little cheer and make something that means something Id love to hear from you.
