Mondays are challenge time at Papertrey, something I try very hard not to miss.
This week, Ashley Newell challenged us to assemble a stamped pillow box or other holding item.
I did a couple of pillow boxes (at the end of this post), but I promised my daughter some thank you cards, handmade by mommy for Christmas. This little item was postponed due to an overwhelmed holiday! Well there's always Valentines, says I, and what better season to say, "I love you sweet daughter!"
Did you know PapertreyInk has packaging called 'My Timeless Templates'?
Among them is my decorated thank you card holder.
All Boxed Up can be purchased as a download for 5.00, and comes with examples and instructions.
It holds 8 cards and 8 envelopes, A2 size.
I used Rustic White Cardstock to do the outside, and Sweet Blush to construct the 2 inside boxes.
Very simple, and makes a great card and envelope holder.
Edges are washi tape.
The front of the box is stamped with an image from Fancy Folk Art (on sweet blush), and Super Stripes in sweet blush ink, sort like ticking stripes.
A plaidish washi finishes off the center of the box with a Simply Chartreuse ribbon. All topped with a double layered Mat stack. Fancy Folk Art dies were colored with copics. The background of the medallion embossed with some Zing, celery powder.
Thank you from, Think Big Favorites #2.
Had to stamp that gorgeous floral on the envelopes!
Did this design in 2 other color ways.
Liked the first one best!
Oh and here's my pillow box
Fashioned from vellum cardstock and stamp embossed with Hanging by a Thread.
Used a die to attach extra yarn and button on a tag. Remember Heather's video on stamping with versamark first and then with color before clear powder is applied? Looking kind of pink, the colors are Pure Poppy and Dark chocolate, but it matches the sweater going the granddaughter of a first time grandma. The matching soft knit headband will go inside the pillow box.
Just haven't completed that task yet!
Going back into the Craft Cave to do some more thank you's, this time for myself!
