I had so much fun making the birthday card/box for Heather I decided to try my hand making another one. This one is essentially the same but I changed the platform from 5.5x5.5" to 6x6" and I don't think I like it as well. I used a textured card stock and I don't think it was as heavy a weight at the brown on the first box (or the change in the size of the platform had an influence on it) and when I glued the sides on it tended to 'warp' a little but it still looks okay. What do you think?
I love the easel card on the side view. It is so pretty and sets the box/box off.
I took several up close of the picture and the sentiment together but couldn't get them to look the way I wanted to so I divided them up to conquer the issue!! I love this stamp set from Stampin Up! It is retired from 1999 and one of the first I bought from someone getting out of stamping a couple years ago. I am a stamp hoarder! If I love them I am keeping them! Currently I have 200-300 stamp sets and I keep thinking I should weed them out but how do you get rid of a much loved child?
How about this sentiment! I thought that the Bella Rose paper, the tea pot image and this sentiment were just about perfect on this card!
