Stampin Up, Quick and Simple Sat for Aug 23rd.
I know this card may not look as quick and simple as usual, but the other item that goes with is very quick and simple.
And here it is. Isn't it a beautiful box? This was made using the new Stampin Up box maker that is in the new Holiday catalog. It makes a box as large as 4"x4"x4", the one I made here is 4x4x1.75. I really like the shorter box.
After making it, I had some pieces I had cut off the new 12x12 paper SU came out with just for making boxes, so I decided to make a card with some of it.
To make the card I simple cut between the tree rows and put them on a piece of gold foil, then I used the same stamp/punch set for the tree that I used for the tag on the box. Also for the box, I used the brand new yummy satin gold ribbon and I gold embossed the tree on the tag.
For the card I stamped a tree out, then gold embossed the gold wreath and used a star punch for the top. There is a star in the tree set, but it was quicker to just punch of of the gold foil.
The new paper for making boxes is gorgeous and a great weight for boxes, double sided as well, so when you open your box it's just as pretty inside.
The holiday catalog goes live on Aug 28th. If you need a catalog, please let me know. I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek.
