Gift card/Box in one!
Hello everyone, today I have a card/gift box project to show you.
It is ideal for any small gifts and I love how this project turned out. The card only measures 4 x 4 inches, not a lot of room for layers, so I kept it simple. The DP I used is by Doodlebug and it was perfect for this project....I bought a 12 x12 piece as I liked it so much, but didn't buy anything else in the same line to match it!! So it suited a simple layout!! I used my favourite Gorjuss girl, she is coloured with copics, cut out and popped up with foam pads onto a nestie cut circle that has been embossed with a joy crafts embossing stencil.
The inside has been decorated in the same way and the sentiment is from WOJ.
This is a shot of my gift box part. I just made a simple box with tab ends that tuck inside. I cut an aperture with a circle nestie and fixed acetate behind, then I made a frame to make the front look pretty! I stuck the back of my box down onto a panel that has been embossed with a joy embossing stencil.
This is the back of my box/card. I used the circle of DP that I cut out for my aperture and a cats life press stamp to decorate it. To decorate the spine I used a piece of pink card, I rounded the corners using a punch and I added two jewels.
This is a picture of all the inside with my tea light candles in the box.
And finally, an arty shot!!!
