Outside the Box!

This morning, I decorated the outside of my card box! I thought I'd take some pics so I could show you what I did. I loved the process and used 2 of my all-time favorite stamp sets. These stamp sets, one retired and one current, are my favorites because they capture the happy times in my childhood like nothing else has.

First, I started with our plain card box
(This has been redesigned from what's shown.)

Here's a picture of the inside

I used my all-time favorite stamp set, Lazy Days. I know this set is no longer available, but even though it's years old, it's still sticky, viable and very usable! CTMH stamp sets last and last and last!

I started stamping using topiary and chocolate ink

Here's the topiary

I also used ruby and pacifica

I rocked and rolled my stamp right around the corners!

Then I used the Country-Born stamp set

And stamped the top. The words are a little crooked, but I don't care since life is a little crooked.

I colored in some of the barn and the apples in the basket with a marker 
(from another company, Shhh!)

The outside of the box and the inside of the box, filled with cards!

You can make your own box!

A Personal Super Hero!

My grandson loves super heros. This coming week, he's turning 9 years old and I thought the perfect card for him would be the Super Hero card from the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge. The super hero on the card literally pops out, making this a fun 3-D card for him to enjoy.

The Super Hero card is found on page 27 of the Artfully Sent cartridge booklet. I used gypsy and honey card stock. In the pictures, the card stock looks more orange than honey, but it's honey. My camera is not always true to color.

I used the recommended size of 7", which means I did not use Real Dial Size. All elements of the card were cut with the 7" setting, and, as you can see, they fit perfectly!

Page 27.

I personalized the card using the alphabet on the cartridge and Real Dial Size at 1 1/2".

Happy Birthday to Cole!
I think he's going to love this card.
You need the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge!
