What a great day we had on Saturday at our first Christchurch Extravaganza! We had 5 awesome teachers including myself and 1 super organised “manager” for the day to support us all. It was very busy and lots of fun meeting new people and reconnecting with the familiar.
My project was a reasonably quick and simple one which once everything was cut and scored I could stamp and put together in 5 minutes! The speed of this means its also quite versatile and great for those moments when you need a card in a hurry or a wee gift box. The other thing I liked about it was that the box is super easy to score and has very little waste. You can get 2 boxes from one piece of A4 card.
The light was rather strong when I took the photo so it may be a bit hard to see the powder pink stamping of the large lacy image behind the flower bunch on the card and all over the box.
I used the Southern Serenade Stamp Set From the Occasions catalogue (Page 49) available in wood #145918 $61; or Clear #145921 $44. The card is one of the Note Card and Envelopes on p.195 (Whisper White #131527 $12.75), and what you cant see is I trimmed 1 cm off the long front edge then stamped the lace trim image along the inside long edge using Lemon Lime Twist. So Pretty. I used A4 Thick Whisper White Cardstock (p.194 #140490 $15) ,this cardstock makes your box a bit more sturdy.
