It's going to be another hot and humid one today with 93 degree temp. Phew! I don't do well with humidity.
My share for today is a Card Box with a Belly Band using Stampin' Up's Bella & Friends Stamp Set,
Moroccan Designer Series Paper, Foxy Friends Stamp Set, Fox Builder Punch and Tag & Labels Framelits Dies. I made this box to fit my Bella & Friends 3" x 3" cards that I have been sharing with you this week and last week.
Let's take a look:
Here's a picture of the 5 cards that I shared with you this week and last week.
Here are the envelopes that I stamped and colored with Stampin' Write Markers for each card.
Here's a picture of the top of the box with the belly band and tag that I created for my 5 - 3" x 3" cards and stamped envelopes.
I'm so sorry as I cannot find my measurements for the box. I must have filed them away with some of my other 3D projects. I looked through the files though two different times and I just couldn't find it. I do know that there are a lot of video's out there for 3" x 3" card boxes so you can always do a search. And, I do promise that if I find my measurements, I will include them in a blog post and reference them to today's blog post. Again, I'm so sorry!
I used Stampin' Up's Moroccan Designer Series Paper for the box and belly band.
The belly band measures 1-3/4" x 11". I just pinched and folded the band around the box and adhered it with SU's Tear & Tape.
I stamped two of the tree's (one small & one large) in Old Olive Ink from SU's Foxy Friends Stamp Set and die cut them out using SU's Peaceful Pines Framelits Dies. I adhered the two tree's together using Stampin' Dimensionals and adhered them to one of SU's 2016-2017 In-Color Doiles in Delightful Dijon. I wanted it to look like the sun in the background.
I stamped two of the tree stumps in Soft Suede Ink and adhered them together with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue. I also adhered the two tree's to the two tree stumps.
I stamped the ferns in Old Olive Ink and the mushrooms in Cajun Craze Ink, fussy cut them out and adhered them to the tree stumps using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
I then adhered the whole tag to the belly band using Stampin' Dimensionals.
And, a picture of the box with the belly band removed.
Here's a close up of the puppy dog. I stamped the puppy dog in Soft Suede Ink and punched him out using the Fox Builder Punch. I assembled the puppy dog using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue. I used the Fox Face piece and cut it in half for the puppy dog's ears. I adhered the puppy dog to the tag using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Here's a picture of the box opened up.
And, a picture of it opened up with the cards and envelopes in it. There's plenty of room for more too!
That's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Have a great day!
recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects,
duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes. My cards and
projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or
sold at craft shows; etc., for profit. I don't mind if you duplicate my
creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions
cards; but, PLEASE be considerate of others creativity! Thank you!
