What a week we have had and we are still joined to Scotland. So no changing money when we go there on holiday.
Today's post is one of the last projects I created for Creative Studios by Sam Poole when I was on the Design Team and it was seen on Create and Craft.
I made the cards first. The greeting was one of Sam's and mounted it onto a holly tag cut with a Spellbinders die.
Here is the detail on the card you can see the matting and layering. I often use black in my layers I feel it adds definition.
This is the insert inside the card using another two of Sam's stamps.
Then I made matching tags. I did add in some of the older release stamps with the new stamps by Sam, I thought they went so well together.
Then it came to making the box. I stacked up all the cards, envelopes and tags and I measured the height to know how high to make the sides of the box. I worked out how big to cut the paper and I used my Hougie board to score the box. Before I assembled the box I cut an aperture in the top the same shape as the tags. I inserted some heat resistant acetate that I had pre-stamped with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with CS white fine detail embossing powder. Once assembled I decorated the box with matching paper and a robin and a tag.
Tomorrow I am off to Ally Pally I am hoping to meet Sue Wilson and Julia Watts not to mention Phill Martin and to see some demos. I have a shopping list from a friend as well as my own it should be a busy day.
Have a great weekend.
