CaRDs BoX and a little bit more!

So here it is. The Card Box I designed for my 1st class of the 2008-2009 class year. I believe that all 8 of the class members lucky enough to buy a seat were happy with their results. You may want to look quick because I do have a publication call and as soon as I mail it I have to pull it from any online art gallery so look quick!

Ingredients:

CTMH - Boom-di-Ada Papers and Cardstock, Chipboard Letters, Ric Rac,Buttons & Ink in Hollyhock, Barn Red, Sunkiss Yellow, Garden Green, Olive,Hollyhock, and Autumn Terracotta
CTMH Stamps - Be True, Cottage Floral, Spot On Background, and Say it in Style
Diane Ribbon - green silk
Joanne Crafts - Steamer Trunk 11 1/4" X 8 X 6 1/4" deep
Krylon Spray Paint - Cottage White

Basic Instructions: Paint Steamer Trunk to coat all surfaces; especially metal embellishments. Once dry, sand metal parts Cut paper to fit. Using good adhesive cover trunk. To make the corners I used an embossing stylus and then cut away the corners. (Much easier than creating a template!) Decorate as desired!

This is absolutely THE most beautiful card box I've ever seen!!! How exciting to see it in print (and get paid for your fun)! Thanks for the basic details on how you did it -- not that I'd be able to duplicate your efforts, but I just may have to give it a try one of these days....

Hope all is well with you and yours. This is our first week of 'summer,' and even though the kids are spending the entire month of June in swim lessons, it beats school work! lol

I'll have to stop back by later and check out the rest of your beautiful work...gotta get the kids to their lesson in a minute. ;)
