I noticed after I took my pictures that my favorite little person (DD) had inadvertently touched my camera lens - so there are a couple blurry spots on this pic. But seriously, it is too darn hot and humid to go retake it!
This is a gift set that I made a friend, who is hostessing a swap for a gorup of us. The theme of the swap is “Black, White, and ONE other color.” Well, I did Black, Vanilla, and Ruby Red. Gotta push those rules whenever I can!
The cards for the others in the swap are a bit different than this - they have black paper (dp by Crate) with cream flowers, whereas for the hostess I changed it up a bit and did the cream paper with black flowers.
To make the box that holds the cards (the design is called a Quick Box for 10 Cards & Envelopes) I used this template: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=243454 made by pageit, which I found when I came across this beauty by sleepyinseattle: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/611303. This box I made holds 8 cards, and no envelopes. I included 5 of the cards shown above, and 3 others that I made that were fairly heavy on the embellies — so they filled it up. The hostess is also a Stampin’ Up! demo so I have no doubt she has some envelopes around.
