Hey all! Today is Throwback Thursday with Papertrey Ink and I am so excited to show you the project I made for today. 🙂
I created a card with coordinating gift box using mainly JUST the Phrase Play #9 stamp and die set. By running the die through multiple times in different colors, you create different colored snowflakes and sentiment strips with ease. I went with traditional Christmas colors but you could use any colors you’d like!!
By using the Bitty Big: Soft Stone in the large plaid, I added extra texture and interest in the gift box. And to keep things coordinated, I stamped on the card using the Soft Stone Ink as well.
I tried to make it easier to see in this picture but the “greetings” sentiment strip has a background stamped purely in Soft Stone “treats” to tie in the Soft Stone color. I also ran the card base through with the Woodgrain Metal Stencil for added texture on my card.
The “WINTER” sentiment is backed with vellum and popped up with multiple layers of foam tape. The vellum adds just enough fade so you can’t see the adhesive underneath (this helps so you don’t have to get super picky in adhesive placement). 🙂
That’s it for me today!! Do you like putting together coordinating cards and gift boxes?? I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. 🙂
Edited due to change in blog hop! – You should have arrived here from the sweet Jessica Frost-Ballas’ Blog!
It’s the last day of the Lil Inker Designs July Release Blog Hop! The latest release is LIVE and you can find the entire thing here. Ok!! I have one more project for you which if you have been following along the past few days, you probably saw it on the Lil Inker Blog on Day 1.
I put together this super fun pillow box by stamping the whole thing with the Doodled Daisies Stamps and accenting it with the Doodled Daisies Stamps & Dies, some twine, and of course, this SUPER FUN Boxed Up: So Happy For You Die.
So that’s it for me for this release! Thank you so much for hopping along! Don’t forget to leave some love for a chance to win! You’re headed off to the lovely Joy Taylor’s Blog again… Much love!!
Goooooooood morning!! How is everyone’s week going? I have been sick all week and I am finally starting to feel a bit better so it’s a good one for me! 🙂 I have a little project for you today that I made for a friend – a Pink Paislee Cedar Lane card and gift set.
I basically wanted to put a gift card into something prettier than simply adding it to the card so I made this adorable pillow box and stuffed it in there instead. 🙂 Everyone loves opening presents, right?! I coordinated the papers and themes for the card and gift so they matched and I think they turned out so cute!!
The card uses Papertrey Ink’s Delicate Details die cut and a punch by Martha Stewart.
The pillow box was created using a die by PTI as well and another Delicate Details die. I snuck in one of the Cedar Lane arrows too… those little guys are too fun!! This is my first time working with Pink Paislee’s Cedar Lane collection, but check out some tags I made with the Pink Paislee C’est La Vie kit here.
Thanks for stopping by!
