A Box of Cards – the Perfect Gift

Do you still have a few tricky people to find a gift for?  How about making them a box of cards?  It’s so handy having a few cards on hand, I know I would love to receive a box full!

The Daisy Delight Designer Series Paper made these cards a breeze to make.  It’s so pretty, it did most of the work for me.  I have used the same basic layout for all of the cards and just changed a few of the embellishments to make each one a little different.

The matching gift box fits five standard size cards and envelopes easily.  As you can see, I have just made an extra card front to decorate the top of the box, simple!

The measurements for this box are: 

Pear Pizzaz Base: 11 1/2″ x 9 3/4″

Score at 1″ and 2 1/2″ on all four sides.  

Whisper White Lid: 9 1/8″ x 7 3/8″

Score at 1/2″ and 1 1/4″ on all four sides.

Note: These measurements for both the base and lid give you a reinforced edge, fold the outer scored section on each side inwards for extra strength and stability.


Card Front Measurements:

Old Olive Mat 10cm x 14.4cm

Daisy Delight Designer Series Paper – Top piece 9.5cm x 10cm, Bottom piece 9.5cm x 4.5cm

Ribbons used: Calypso Coral Ombre, Old Olive Mini Chevron, Daffodil Delight Double Stitched

Other: Stitched Shaped Framelits, Daisy Delight Stamp set and Punch, Faceted Gems.  Sentiments from Jar of Love and Sheltering Tree Stamp sets.
