Hi, everyone! It’s Kelli here today with a note card box to share with you. For all the stamping I used the new Lawn Fawn – Critters on the Savanna stamp set. I stamped everything in Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copics:
C9, C7, C5, C3, C2, C1, C0
E29, E27, E25
Y26, Y23, Y21
Bg09, BG07, BG05, BG02
G28, G07, G05, G03
I kind of cheated for today’s project because Saturday is ‘Anything but a Card’ day, and I sort of included cards with my post, lol! I needed something to go into the card box though! 🙂
Here is a photo of the completed box. I used some Plush Blush Baker’s Twine and added a button to keep the box closed. Don’t forget to stamp and color on the box before you assemble it!
To open the box you just slip off the twine and it opens like a pizza box. The size of the box is 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ x 3/4″ and it fit four 3″ note cards (with dimension) perfectly. If you didn’t want the colored portion from the front of the box showing through like you can see here, you can easily just color it on a separate sheet of paper an cut it out. Since I colored directly on the box I will probably go back and add a sheet of card stock to the inside to cover it up.
Here’s all the note cards together. I wanted to use all of the sentiments and main animals included in the set and also add one of the birds to each for an added pop of color. Also… I realized after I was all done that the colors on my lion are backwards. Oops! He’s just special. 🙂
What I was most excited to use, along with the stamps, are the new matching Lawn Cuts Dies for Critters on the Savanna! That’s my new favorite obsession, DIES!!! I cut out my images a lot and to have matching dies saves me a lot of time. Not to mention that it also looks better too!
Something that is cool about long clear sentiment stamps is that you can curve them! That’s what I did with the sentiment above the lion.
I really love animal sets as you can tell and Lawn Fawn has lots of them!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day! 🙂
