Card Holder Box




I am so productive today. I finished a card holder box which I am filling it with some cards I already made. I am planning to give it to a few people as gifts. I think I can put about 5 or 6 cards inside the box for other people to use for "Thank you" or "Birthday" or just a quick "Hi". I got the box template from A Muse Addict Message Borad by Geeta Sugg. She made it to hold A Amuse cards which is 41/2 x 4 1/2 but standard A2 cards are 41/4 x 5 1/2, so I change the measurements to fit my cards. I stamped the red cardstock with Brillance Black ink pad and embossed it with clear embossing powder (ep). The stamps are from Hero Arts BG Silhouette on the bottom half of the box and the cover is a stamp from Stampendous. I used the round corner punch. I added velcro so you can open and close the box and velcro was the cheapest way to make closers. This was actually quite easy. No embellishment on this one as this was my first one, maybe the next time.
I made this card to go into the card holder box. I decided to do some simple cards. I got this stamp yesterday at Stamp Works. The stamp is from Inkadinkado. Another silhouette stamp. The sihouette stamps are ready popular right now. Almost everything stamp company has a few that just came out. I just stamped the image 3 times in 3 different colors (Marvy ink pads), but 2 of the colors are so much similar, you probably can't see it here. I stamped the butterfly a couple of times, cutted them out, added rhinestones on them, and sticked them on the card. I also used my paper piercing tool to make some holes on the bottom where the birthday sentiment is, but you probably can see them, but as a butterfly trail.
This is all for today. I have some more cards I have to make on a few more challenges on SCS.
See you later this week. Have a good work week.
