SPD - December Project Pea Blog Hop!



Back again with another SugarPea Designs idea.  I wanted to try using my stamps to create a thank you gift this month, so I made a box of cards using the SugarCuts Gift Tag die, the Layered Treat Labels set and Have an ICE Day stamp set.  Here's the finished project. . .


I started by making a pizza box to fit the 3.5" x 4.75" cards I made.  Pizza boxes are pretty simple to figure the dimensions out for - just remember to consider your envelopes as you measure. (I had to go back and edit the photo because the envelopes were a little bigger than my demonstration box.)

My box size is: 4 x 5.25 x 1.

The paper size 11 x 7.25
One the 11" side, I scored the paper at 1", 5", 6", 10"
On the 7" side, score the paper at 1" and 6.25"

Cut on the cut lines as marked.

Here's the patterned paper scored, with Score Tape on the tabs, and ready to fold.






The box folded and the inside view.  The edge is punched with a 1.25" circle punch














And now onto the cards . . . I used the circles from the Layered Treat Labels stamp set to create overlapping circles and finished with the sentiment and snowflakes from Have an ICE Day.  I made two versions of the card - one on blue paper with white embossing powder and the other on white paper with Soft Suede and Marina Mist ink.



































The tag was cut from white and distressed along the sides with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I used scraps from the patterned paper box to cut stars and the words to and from and then added some enamel dots.
